Why We Recommend Pet Insurance if you Live in Michigan
Our four-legged friends have a knack for getting into trouble. And in Michigan, they don’t have to reach far to find it. Trouble can come from the change of seasons, tiny bugs, harsh weather, or unexpected accidents. We've compiled a list of claims from the Wolverine State, and the most common ones are exactly what you'd expect:
Nothing beats enjoying all four seasons in the beautiful state of Michigan, but did you know the frequent change in weather can trigger allergies in your pet? That's right. Dogs can have allergies, just like people. In fact, we see allergies as one of the most diagnosed conditions for dogs in the state. Vets may order prescription allergy medication to relieve the symptoms. Luckily, pet insurance from Embrace covers this treatment, so you and your furry friend can continue enjoying the great outdoors together, no matter what the season.
Lake-effect snow is inevitable when living near the Great Lakes. Despite your pet’s thick fur coat, the harsh winters put him or her at increased risk for frostbite, hypothermia, and other illnesses. You can’t control the weather, but with pet insurance, you can be prepared to protect your pet's health and safety, no matter how much the vet bill is.
Ticks and Fleas
The heat and humidity that Michigan experiences throughout the summer can cause a serious threat to your pet. With Wellness Rewards from Embrace, many pet parents budget for tick and flea prevention and are reimbursed for being proactive with their pet’s care.
We do our best to give our pets a fun, healthy and safe life, but sometimes, accidents happen, no matter where you live. Don't take the chance of being financially unprepared when they do.

Breed-Specific & Genetic Conditions
What’s not covered with cat and dog insurance?
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 when we consider pre-existing condition pet insurance.
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 full pet insurance policy.
