Basset Hound Pet Insurance

Basset Hounds are easily recognizable due to their short legs and long ears. They were originally developed in France to track small game for hunters. With a gentle disposition, the Basset Hound makes a great companion!

Why Pet Insurance for Your Basset Hound

As a pure breed, Basset Hounds are more susceptible to genetic health issues than mixed breed dogs. Whether you just brought home a young Basset Hound puppy or have a full-grown adult, each segment in your Basset Hound’s life brings about new health risks.

Providing your dog with the medical help they need for typical Basset Hound health issues should never be a financial decision. Our personalized pet health insurance provides coverage for accidents & illnesses while allowing you to build a dog insurance policy that fits your budget and the needs of your Basset Hound.

Most of our customers pay $30 to $57 per month to insure their Basset Hound. You may spend more or less depending on where you live and what deductible you choose.

With our pet insurance plan, your Basset Hound can visit any vet in the country, including emergency clinics & specialists. Your policy will reimburse you for exam fees, diagnostics, surgery, and hospitalization, even alternative & homeopathic therapies.

We also offer the most flexible routine care plan in the industry with Embrace Wellness Rewards. Wellness Rewards can be purchased in addition to any Embrace insurance plan and covers routine visits, vaccinations, grooming, training, and more for your Basset Hound pup.

Pet Insurance Comparison for Basset Hounds

Deciding on the right pet insurance company from the start is extremely important for you and your Basset Hound. If you choose the wrong plan and go to make a claim, you could find your Basset Hound'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 have full or partial limitations on genetic and hereditary illnesses, leaving some Basset Hound health issues without coverage. Embrace has none.

The ability to personalize your pet insurance plan means you get the best coverage possible while for your Basset Hound 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).
