Why Pet Insurance for Your Pug

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

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

Being a compact breed, Pugs are prone to size-related health issues that demand attention and care. Portosystemic shunts, a condition where abnormal blood vessels bypass the liver, can affect Pugs, and necessitate medical intervention. Legg-Calve-Perthes Disease, involving the degeneration of the hip joint, is another concern, requiring vigilant monitoring. Pugs may also contend with eye problems like Entropion, where the eyelids roll inward, potentially leading to discomfort and impairment. Responsible pet ownership, regular veterinary check-ups, and considering pet insurance for Pugs can provide the support needed to address these potential health issues and ensure a happy and healthy life.

Pet Insurance Comparison for Pugs 

Deciding on the right pet insurance company from the start is extremely important for you and your Pug. If you choose the wrong plan and go to make a claim, you could find your Pug'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 Pug 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 Pug 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). 

With our pet insurance plan, your pug can visit any vet in the country, including emergency clinics & specialists. Your policy will reimburse you for exam fees, diagnostics, surgery, and hospitalization, even complementary therapies like hydrotherapy and acupuncture. 

We also offer the most flexible pet wellness 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 Pug pup.
