Shetland Sheepdog Pet Insurance

The sweet-faced Shetland Sheepdog, or Sheltie as they are commonly known, makes an excellent family dog. Shetland Sheepdogs are very trainable and excellent at agility and canine sports. They love to show off, but generally hate water.

Why Pet Insurance for Your Shetland Sheepdog

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

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

Most of our customers pay $33 to $49 per month to insure their Shetland Sheepdog. You may spend more or less depending on where you live and what deductible you choose.

With our pet insurance plan, your Shetland Sheepdog 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 Shetland Sheepdog pup.

Pet Insurance Comparison for Shetland Sheepdogs

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