Why Pet Insurance for Your German Shepherd Dog

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

Providing your dog with the medical help they need for typical German Shepherd 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 German Shepherd.

Most of our customers pay $35 to $50 per month to insure their German Shepherd. You may spend more or less depending on where you live and what deductible you choose.

With our pet insurance plan, your German Shepherd 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 German Shepherd pup.

Pet Insurance Comparison for German Shepherd Dogs

Deciding on the right pet insurance company from the start is extremely important for you and your German Shepherd. If you choose the wrong plan and go to make a claim, you could find your German 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 have full or partial limitations on genetic and hereditary illnesses, leaving some German Shepherd 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 German Shepherd 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).
