I'm so happy to announce that Embrace is partnering with Dr Marty Becker, also known as America's Veterinarian, to spread the word far and wide about Embrace's affordable and effective pet insurance to prevent economic euthanasia when cats and dogs get sick.
I first met Dr Marty in 2011 when he came through Cleveland on his cross-country tour supporting his book "Your Dog: The Owner's Manual". He was meeting and greeting dog owners who had come to meet him and I was struck by how he personally connected with his fans, sharing a special tip for each person's situation like they had been friends for years.
Since then, I can see why Dr Marty has the impact he does - his care for pets and his actions to improve their lives is truly sincere, something I always wonder about with celebs who make money off what they say. Dr Marty is making a difference in the lives of pets and I'm delighted Embrace is now part of that mission.

Dr. Becker also serves as the Chief Veterinary Correspondent for the American Humane Association, with a strong focus on supporting their efforts to end the use of gas chambers in animal shelters, a cause for which he has successfully advocated since his earliest days as a veterinarian.

He practices, when his schedule allows, at Lakewood Animal Hospital and North Idaho Animal Hospital in north Idaho because he loves veterinary medicine, pets and the people who care for them.
