How much does surgery to remove a swallowed foreign object cost?


Stella - Labrador Retriever

In our experience, anywhere from $1,600 to over $12,000 (even without surgery, costs range from $300 - $1,200)

Here's an example: Stella, a Labrador Retriever from Cleveland, OH (pictured), required emergency surgery and a hospital stay to remove a blanket she chewed up in her crate.

The total cost for this accident was $3,829.80 - We hate to think how much it would have cost in NY City or LA (at least $1,000 more).

Embrace paid out $2,640.22 on this claim as the pet parent had selected a $300 annual deductible and 80% reimbursement percentage.

Mind if we pay your vet bills?
