Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine Receives $10,000

As a result of Curtis winning the 2015 Hambone Award, Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine will receive the $10,000 Nationwide-funded award through the Veterinary Care Foundation to treat pets whose owners could not otherwise afford treatment.


After having a skewer embedded in his body for more than a year, Curtis was saved by the veterinary specialists at the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine, who performed a life saving surgery to remove the skewer and the mass it had caused.

After more than a year of pain and a long road to recovery, Curtis is back to his happy Boxer ways, thanks to the outstanding treatment he received at the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine.

Nationwide would like to thank all 12 animal hospitals that treated the 2015 Hambone Award® nominees. All pets nominated for the Hambone Award have made full recoveries and received insurance reimbursements for eligible expenses.
