Australian Shepherd Pet Insurance

The Australian Shepherd has a fairly misleading name, originating in the United States and not Australia like one might think. They are highly intelligent dogs that live to work and please. Aussies have gorgeous coats, often with a marbled look to them.

Why Pet Insurance for Your Australian Shepherd

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

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

Most of our customers pay $27 to $41 per month to insure their Australian Shepherd. You may spend more or less depending on where you live and what deductible you choose.

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

Pet Insurance Comparison for Australian Shepherds

Deciding on the right pet insurance company from the start is extremely important for you and your Australian Shepherd. If you choose the wrong plan and go to make a claim, you could find your Australian 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 when you compare pet insurance for dogs include our flexibility and comprehensive coverage. Other companies have full or partial limitations on genetic and hereditary illnesses, leaving some Australian 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 Australian 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).
