The Bay State is an idyllic place to live, and many of its residents own pets as cherished companions. Steeped in history and innovation, Massachusetts boasts stunning coastal landscapes, vibrant cultural hubs, and a thriving arts scene.
Home prices, gas prices, and food expenses are very high in Massachusetts, but they are not the only costs to consider. Pet care costs have also seen increases as the price of keeping our beloved furry family members protected becomes more expensive.
Facing the High Costs of Pet Care in Massachusetts
According to our internal Embrace Pet Insurance data, we covered over 24,000 claims in Massachusetts in 2023 at an average cost of almost $450 per claim. We find that Massachusetts pets experience a lot of vomiting, with average costs for treatment of almost $600 and going all the way up to $7400! We also see a lot of dermatitis, with the average vet treatment costing over $200, but treatment can run over $2700 in Massachusetts. It’s no wonder why Bay Staters are turning to pet insurance coverage in increasing numbers to help cover these daunting expenses.

My dog needed to stay at the hospital overnight due to a serious case of kennel cough. Embrace covered 90% of the stay. If we didn’t have Embrace it would have cost us close to $4,000! I tell anyone who doesn’t have pet insurance to use Embrace!

Thank you Embrace!!! My cat wasn't eating, so I knew she wasn't feeling well. After some tests and x-rays, I took her to the ER Vet. The bill is being processed, but I'm so relieved I have Embrace Insurance for my fur baby, they really came through and gave me peace of mind that Lilly has the best of care.
