Why We Recommend Pet Insurance if You Live in Florida

Our four-legged friends have a knack for coasting into trouble. And in Florida, they don’t have to go far to find it. Trouble can come from a crazy critter encounter, harsh weather, or even a day at the beach. We’ve laid out a list of some of the most common claims from Floridian pet parents:

Extreme Heat

Florida isn’t called the Sunshine State for nothing! With high temperatures and humidity all year long, it can be dangerous for your pets to be out and about with the risk of overheating, dehydration, and even heatstroke.

Bufo Toads

These poisonous critters call Florida home, and small doses of venom can cause severe reactions in cats and dogs within minutes. These toads are active all year long, so constant vigilance is needed when you have playful and curious pets.

Toxic Plants

The climate in Florida provides the perfect habitat for both indoor and outdoor plant varieties. But some vegetation can be deadly to our canine and feline family members, so make sure they’re not calling your backyard home.

Venomous Snakes 

Three different species of rattlesnakes (pigmy, eastern diamondback, and timber rattlesnakes) are natives of Florida. Easily agitated and possessing deadly venom, they’re a slithery surprise your pal doesn’t want to find while exploring.

What’s Not Covered?

While no pet insurance covers pre-existing conditions – Embrace included – we do distinguish between curable and incurable pre-existing conditions and cover curable conditions after your pet is symptom- and treatment-free for 12 months. 

We also do not cover cosmetic procedures (declawing, ear cropping, tail docking, etc.), breeding and whelping, DNA testing, or cloning.   

For routine and preventative care, we offer a flexible Wellness Rewards plan, which is the purrfect complement to your insurance policy. 

I could not possibly be Happier with the service and with a payment of claims by Embrace... To my pleasant surprise Embrace has done everything they said they would do, pay the claims timely and have been a big help to my wife and I. Thank you very much.
