You treat your dog like your own baby. You give the best to him. You pay the pet insurance for seven years already just to secure your beloved dog.
When he becomes sickly because of an inflammation, you have not thought twice of letting him have surgery because you feel secured that he is insured. However, what will you do when the pet insurance denies your claim?
Fava, a dog owner, has been paying pet insurance for seven years already for her dog, Coco. However, Coco is diagnosed of Pyometra, which is an inflammation of the uterus.

He goes through surgery, and Fava needs to pay $3,500. She relies on the pet insurance. However, the pet insurance denies her claim because Fava should have spayed Coco to prevent the disease.
Fava says she was never informed during the time she held the policy that certain medical illnesses would not be coverage unless her pet was sterilized.
“It’s personal,” she said. “When you have a pet it’s up to you if you want to have them spayed or not.”
Fava says she’s happy Coco has recovered but unhappy the insurance company has declined to share any costs.
