What's Not Covered

No pet insurance company covers pre-existing conditions, but Embrace’s dog insurance plan separates curable and incurable conditions to help you get the most coverage. Worried about pre-existing conditions? Request a Medical History Review.

Other exclusions include cosmetic procedures, DNA testing, breeding, and pregnancy.

How Your Dog Insurance Plan is Built

Some factors that determine pet insurance plan cost can’t be changed. But Embrace lets you customize other elements to build the best dog insurance policy that fits every budget.

Certain dog breeds are prone to different genetic conditions and the premium reflects that.

Aging pets are higher risk and cost more to insure since they are more susceptible to injuries and illnesses.

Veterinary rates vary based on location, so pet insurance companies consider that in your payment.
