If any of you out there have pet insurance you might not know of the options available to you. Luckily if your dog winds up doing things that are a little bit crazy (which they will inevitably do), you’d be surprised what pet insurance might cover. Last year a company called Pets Best Insurance decided to rank what they considered to be the weirdest claims of the year. You know, stuff like “wait a second, my dog ate what???”
Of those five we decided to share what we considered to be the weirdest one: Zoie, the dog that ate sand.
Zoie is an energetic Maltese who likes going to the beach. She enjoys having the time of her life at the beach but unfortunately winds up ruining that day by feasting on a bunch of sand. Yes, sand. Zoie eats sand. Have you eaten sand? It tastes like sand. During her meal, Zoie lost her appetite and started throwing up. Her dessert was intravenous fluids. Total charge for the meal? $1,991, payable to the vet.
So there you have it. A dog eating sand. You can view the other five stories at Dogster
