A Canadian insurer recently conducted research on some of the silliest pet mishaps they could find. Some examples of these mishaps include:
- a dog that was taken to the veterinarian after swallowing a credit card – the bill came to hundreds of dollars but the vet failed to see the humor when the owner suggested he scan her dog to cover the payment!
- a cat that was acting strange was taken to the vet and it wasn’t until a $500 bill and a trip to the litter box later that the owner discovered the feisty feline had swallowed a shoe lace
- in a game of chase between an airplane in the sky and a dog, the airplane won and the dog careened head-first into its backyard fence
- a clownish canine lost two teeth in a battle of tug of war with its owner’s bathrobe.
The research also showed that of the dog and cat owners surveyed, 98% don’t have pet insurance, despite the fact that a quarter of those say their pet has suffered an injury that resulted in a visit to the vet. The research also showed that 55% of pet owners surveyed said they would be likely to get pet insurance if it could easily be added on to their existing property insurance policy.
