Shih Tzu Pet Insurance

Shih Tzus, literally meaning Lion Dog, are small dogs with beautiful, long silky hair. The Shih Tzu originated in Tibet and some consider this breed to be the most closely related to wild wolves. A favorite lap dog and companion pet, Shih Tzu do well in both city and country.

Why Pet Insurance for Your Shih Tzu

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

Providing your dog with the medical help they need for typical Shih Tzu 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 Shih Tzu.

Most of our customers pay $31 to $47 per month to insure their Shih Tzu. You may spend more or less depending on where you live and what deductible you choose.

With our pet insurance plan, your Shih Tzu 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 Shih Tzu pup.

Pet Insurance Comparison for Shih Tzus

Deciding on the right pet insurance company from the start is extremely important for you and your Shih Tzu. If you choose the wrong plan and go to make a claim, you could find your Shih Tzu's illness isn't covered. You're left paying the entire bill and that illness would be excluded moving to a new insurance company.

When you're looking for a comparison of the best pet insurance, Embrace's strongest points include our flexibility and comprehensive coverage. Other companies have full or partial limitations on genetic and hereditary illnesses, leaving some Shih Tzu 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 Shih Tzu 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).
