What is the Best Pet Insurance?

When it comes to pet insurance, not all providers are created equal. To find the best fit for you and your furry friend, it's important to compare companies based on three key factors: types of coverage, quality of coverage, and coverage customization. Look for a provider that offers comprehensive policies, including coverage for accidents, illness, treatments, dental care, vet visit fees, follow-up care, complementary treatments, and fast reimbursements.

Embrace has a reputation for trust, commitment, and compassion, offering high-quality coverage, customizable plans, and a range of discounts and incentives.

Pet Insurance Comparison FAQs

What is the best pet insurance?

Choosing the best pet insurance depends on your budget and personal preferences. At Embrace Pet Insurance, we offer customizable plans that fit your needs. We offer coverage for accidents, illnesses, breed-specific and congenital conditions, alternative therapies, and dental illnesses. Embrace customers can take advantage of our optional Wellness Rewards program, which provides reimbursements for routine care expenses like dental cleanings, vaccinations, and more. Our focus on tailored coverage, exceptional customer service, and speedy reimbursement processing makes us a top choice for pet insurance.  

What is the best dog insurance?

When looking for dog insurance, you want to find a plan that offers coverage that's there when you need it, while still being affordable. Embrace’s insurance for dogs  provides comprehensive protection that can cover a range of situations, from accidents to illnesses to dental issues. You can customize your plan to fit your dog's needs and choose your deductible and reimbursement rate to ensure the plan is affordable. Our optional Wellness Rewards program even reimburses for routine preventive care, so you can be sure your furry friend is always healthy. 

What is the best level of pet insurance?

That depends on the pet (and more specifically, their pet parent). If you’re worried about accidents or illnesses, comprehensive coverage might suit you well. If you’re only concerned about the unexpected, the accident-only coverage might be right for you. If you want coverage for everyday expenses like vaccinations, routine vet visits and training, the supplemental Wellness Rewards program has those covered. It's important to find a company that allows you to customize your policies and programs.  

Is it better to have pet insurance or not?

Emergencies and illnesses are increasingly expensive. Considering that 56% of Americans have less than $1000 in their savings account, and every 6 seconds, a pet parent is handed an emergency vet bill of $1000 or more, pet insurance is great way to hedge those risks. Embrace’s policies can ensure you’re prepared for the unexpected.   

What are the disadvantages of pet insurance?

Some plans only cover accidents, so you would not be protected if your pet gets sick. However, some insurance carriers offer comprehensive packages that cover everything from routine check-ups to behavioral treatment. Keep in mind that pre-existing conditions are often excluded, meaning you won't be reimbursed for any medical treatment related to health issues that were present before you started your pet’s policy. Also, some carriers exclude certain medical conditions that may arise later, such as hip dysplasia in large dogs. Embrace doesn't. 

How do I choose the best pet insurance?

When choosing a provider, you should find a company suited to your pet's needs. Things to consider include coverage options, exclusions or limitations, cost, flexibility, speed of reimbursement and customer service.

What are the three types of pet insurance?

Pet insurance comes in three main types, including comprehensive coverage for accidents and illnesses, accident-only coverage, and basic wellness care, which isn’t insurance, but a budgeting tool. 

Are vet exam fees covered?

Like human doctors, walking into the vet's office can cost a considerable amount of money, ranging from $100 to $200. However, Embrace pet insurance is different. They cover the vet's exam fee, also known as the office visit fee, in your reimbursement. Some other pet insurance companies do not cover this fee, which is like paying an extra deductible for every claim you file. Embrace believes you should be reimbursed for every aspect of your visit, not just a portion. 

How much coverage do I need?

Only you can decide how much coverage you need. We typically recommend getting the highest coverage you can comfortably afford.

*Complementary treatments were previously called alternative therapies.
