3) TAKE THESE ACTIONS
Contact your veterinarian immediately
Report the loss or emergency to both Kirkman Gore and the policy adjuster immediately
In case of death, an autopsy and postmortem examination at the owner’s expense must be obtained. Do not dispose of the horse until adjuster approves.
Call the police if your loss involves theft, shooting, or vehicular involvement and obtain a police report, which is required.
You MUST obtain permission to euthanize an insured animal. In extreme emergency situations, consent to euthanize is not required if it is not possible to report at the time and an attending veterinarian states that immediate euthanasia is necessary to prevent inhumane suffering.
In the event of emergency surgery if there is not sufficient time to call the claim adjuster or Kirkman Gore as agents, permission is not necessary. This is considered in the event that the emergency surgery is required to save the animal's life. In this event, notice within a reasonable period of time is required.
