Five Most Common Trupanion Puppy Claims

June 09, 2023

We teamed up with our pet insurance partners at Trupanion to dig into the most common puppy claims they see in their database. Read on to learn more about five frequently occurring puppy illnesses every dog owner should know about. 
 

1. Vomiting and diarrhea
An upset stomach can affect pets of all ages, and puppies are no exception. "Vomiting and diarrhea can be caused by so many different things…dietary indiscretion, parasites, food intolerance, obstruction. Also, diagnostic and treatment recommendations vary with historical factors and presentation," says Trupanion veterinarian Dr. Caroline Wilde. If your puppy is experiencing any vomiting or diarrhea, please seek medical care.
 
The highest-paid claim for vomiting and diarrhea involved a three-month-old puppy. The Trupanion policy paid $15,641.
 

2. Foreign body ingestion
Puppies try to eat everything! Puppies love to chew and chewing is a natural behaviour. Unfortunately, sometimes normal puppy chewing and play leads to ingestion of a foreign body! "Any time a patient is vomiting, we always have to consider foreign body ingestion as the potential cause," states Wilde.
 
The highest-paid out claim for foreign body ingestion for a nine-month-old puppy totalled $29,121. The Trupanion policy paid $26,209.

 
3. Lameness and limping
Imagine this – your puppy is in the backyard and suddenly starts limping. Whether your furry friend is in the backyard or the dog park, your puppy can become injured. Unfortunately, lameness and limping are common puppy concerns and all too common Trupanion claims.
 
An eight-month-old Bernese Mountain Dog ended up with quite a claim after a play session. After an $11,031 claim, the Trupanion policy paid $9,928.
 

4. Fracture
A fracture can happen with little to no warning, whether you're on a walk, enjoying a family outing, or playing at home.
 
The highest-paid claim for a fracture came from a six-month-old puppy for a boating accident. With $11,064 eligible in claims, the Trupanion policy paid $9,733.
 

5. MPL- Medial patellar luxation
A medial patellar luxation, otherwise known as an MPL, can affect dogs of all shapes and sizes. "The pet's owner may notice the dog limping or holding their leg out to the side," says Wilde.
 
A ten-month-old puppy had $14,164 in eligible claims for MPL, and the Trupanion policy paid $12,748.
