Will it be Myles the Great Dane who swallowed an entire pair of pants; Kismet, the Jack Russell terrier who fought off a dangerous burglar; or one of the other amazing pets with incredibly unique and unusual stories? It’s up to you! Additionally, the veterinary hospital that treated the winning pet will receive a $10,000 Nationwide-funded award from the Veterinary Care Foundation to treat pets whose owners could not otherwise afford treatment.
Originally named after a Nationwide insured dog who ate an entire Thanksgiving ham while stuck in the refrigerator, the Hambone Award has since been presented for seven equally unusual claims since 2009. All nominated pets made full recoveries and received insurance reimbursements for eligible expenses.
