A pet insurance company in New Zealand has revealed its 10 most unusual pet care claims from 2018.

Two of the most unusual claims included:
• A French bulldog that had multiple incisions to remove a whole roll of dental floss. The procedure cost NZ$2,873 (£1,503).
• A Shetland sheepdog that was treated for eating dishcloths on two separate occasions. In the first instance it was given antibiotics and lactulose to help pass the cloth naturally. The second time it was given apomorphine so it would throw it up. The whole procedure cost $222 (£116), reported the Scoop Independent News.
