Claim example: a rather expensive Labrador

The Labrador Retriever is the most popular purebred dog in the US but if you are at all familiar with them, you know they can get up to a lot of trouble and have all sorts of health issues as well.

Danno, a 2 year old Labrador living in Menlo Park, CA is a prime example. He has allergies, elbow dysplasia, and tends to eat what he should not, totaling $16,000 of claims in his young life - wow!

We cover a lot of Labradors with allergies. For Danno, just the allergy costs alone total more than $5,800.
