Boomer - Golden Retriever


Boomer the Golden Retriever was faced with some serious injuries, including a luxating hip and de-gloving on his back leg, after being hit by a car. It would take surgery and extensive rehab to get Boomer back to health.

His pet parent, Jeffrey, tells us more:

"In 2014, Boomer, was hit by a car. My neighbor’s dog was never collared, leashed, or fenced, and, one day, he snuck into our backyard. I let Boomer out and, as soon as he caught sight of the dog, they tore down the street. The other dog made it across…Boomer wasn’t so lucky. Who would have known the pet insurance policy that we purchased from Embrace just two weeks prior would pay off so soon?

Boomer presented with no broken bones and no internal bleeding (luckily!), but he did have a luxated hip, several deep lacerations, a de-gloved back hock, and intensive road burn. We quickly racked up thousands of dollars in surgeries and medical bills, but thanks to Embrace, we were able to say “yes” to all of the medical attention that Boomer needed without hesitation. Afterward, we were even able to continue physical therapy and pain management at a top-of-the-line animal rehab center.

Today, Boomer is a happy, active boy. It’s hard to tell that he was ever in an accident—all that remains is the advanced arthritis, which we manage with medication and regular maintenance check-ups. Embrace saved our family. They kept us whole. Because of our experience with Embrace, I am a huge believer in pet insurance and recommend it to everyone I meet. When you're going through the hardest time of your lives the way we were, you need someone on your team to help you get through it. And that's what Embrace was for us. They were like family."
