Embrace Pet Insurance:
Customizable plans so you design the plan to fit your wallet
(instead of the other way around)



Embrace Pet Insurance is a great choice.


They have LOTS of discounts that can be stacked! Some include: multiple pets, military, spay/neuter.
They also cover hereditary and congenital conditions.
Plus, they do not follow a benefit schedule so they reimburse you based on what you pay.

Embrace Pet Insurance plans are very customizable, so you can choose the annual coverage you want ($2000- $15000/yr) aswell as the annual deductible (from $100-$1000). In this way, you can create whatever kind of plan that fits your needs. From a catastrophic event, to regular injuries.

They also have many top-ups so that if you don’t want routine care, you don’t have to pay for it unless you choose it. This keeps your monthly premium down.

A draw back is that Embrace Pet Insurance does not cover you if you travel outside of the country. But, if you don’t plan on traveling with your pet then this isn’t a problem.

When I phoned Embrace Pet Insurance, I talked with Lisa. She answered all my questions in a courteous manner.

Embrace Pet Insurance

According to their website, 1 in 3 pet owners claim within their first year of getting coverage, and if they have coverage for 3 years, then 75% of them will make a claim.This just shows that if you have the insurance for 3 years you will probably end up using it.

Below there are 3 charts. The first one explains an overview of the coverage. The second one is about their extra optional plans, and the final chart fully shows their plans.
