Dogs ingesting turkey carcass, frozen croissants top list of unusual claims.
Pets Best Insurance Services, LLC, a leading U.S. pet insurance agency based in Boise, Idaho, released its annual list of the most bizarre pet insurance claims submitted to the agency during the holiday season. Since Pets Best was formed in 2005, the pet insurance agency has received a wide range of surprising claims from pet owners.
Below are four of the most unusual holiday-related claims Pets Best has processed recently:
For many, baking is a holiday tradition. From breads to decadent desserts, there’s usually something special in the oven during the holiday season. A 2-year-old Siberian husky named Zoey really bit off more than she could chew when she decided to eat a whole box of frozen croissants. Due to the high amount of yeast in bread dough, a veterinarian induced vomiting and monitored Zoey for hypoglycemia and signs of ethanol toxicity. After a short hospitalization, Zoey was well enough to return to her terrible twos in the comfort of her own home. Pets Best reimbursed Zoey’s parents 90 percent of their veterinary bill after their deductible was met.
