A Pet Parent Asks:
Are multiple injuries from a single event considered one incident? For example, a dog suffers an accident that causes a broken bone, cuts needing stitches and surgery. Would I be reimbursed up to one incident limit for all these injuries? Or would each injury have its own incident limit?

ASPCA Pet Health Insurance Answers:
Good question!

Multiple injuries that are related to one incident share one incident limit.

For this particular scenario, you would be reimbursed up to the covered amounts on all three components of this one accident—the broken bone, cuts needing stitches and surgery—up to your maximum incident benefit.
