Pet Insurance Comparison for German Shepherds

Deciding on the right pet insurance company from the start is extremely important. If you choose the wrong plan and go to make a claim, you could find your Shepherd's illness isn't covered. You're left paying the entire bill and that illness would be excluded moving to a new insurance company.

Embrace's strongest points of comparison include our flexibility and comprehensive coverage. Other companies like VPI, ASPCA Pet Insurance, and Pets Best all have full or partial limitations on genetic and hereditary illnesses, leaving your German Shepherd without coverage. Embrace has none.

The ability to personalize your pet insurance plan means you get the best coverage possible while maintaining a payment within your budget (other companies charge extra for items like hip dysplasia or cancer coverage, or only offer routine care with their more expensive plans).
