Dog Eats Beehive, Wins Award

The winner of the annual Hambone Award is a California Labrador that eats and entire beehive. The Hambone Award bestowed by Veterinary Pet Insurance Co. The firm who solicits stories of pets with extremely unusual insurance claims.

The story of Ellie, a Labrador is really unusual. The owner of Ellie, Robert Coe and Sandra thought there are still bees buzzing around their home after exterminators sprayed a hive in their yard. That is until that night they noticed that their dog is acting weird. Ellie throw up several time and there were hundreds of dead bees in each pile. Ellie had discovered and eaten a beehive after the exterminators had left.

The veterinarian on duty who examined Ellie was shocked that the dog ingested dead bees and hadn’t been stung, and fortunately the pesticide did not pose a significant risk of toxicity. After a dose of anti-nausea medication and a few hours of observation, Ellie was on her way back home. And as the winner of the most unusual pet insurance claim, Ellie’s owners, Robert and Sandra Coe, get a bronze trophy in the shape of a ham and a basket of doggie toys and treats.
