    A Belgian couple staying on site here in Spain have a Labrador that has had an accident. It fell down an open mine shaft and it took 3 days to get it out. Broken leg and dehydration. The vets treated it and it still needs another operation.
    We have just found out last night that the insurers have refused to pay for the treatment because the accident happened here in Spain and not in Belgium. They thought they were insured.
    Does your animal insurance cover you for accident treatment while abroad or just UK?.
    The authorites in Spain would not help as they considered it dangerous for the Bombaros (Firemen) so they had to get some local climbers to rescue the dog.
