Claim Example: dog cataracts

Rascal is a 7 year old mixed breed dog who has had a number of claims for cataracts. His dog mom noticed something was awry nearly two years ago and visited the opthamology specialist who suggested a wait and see approach. Three months later, Rascal had bilateral cataract surgery on his eyes.

Here are all the costs so far.

11/28/2012 Deduct Cataract $98.00 $0.00

Rascal has made a very good recovery since his surgery. I think his mom's bank account is well on its way to recovery too.

Has your dog gone through cataract surgery? How successful was it?
