The Empire State is an idyllic place to live, and many of its residents own pets as cherished companions. From the iconic skyline of New York City to the charming towns of Upstate, New York is a pet lover's paradise. Whether you're chasing squirrels in Central Park with your four-legged friend or enjoying a leisurely stroll along Lake Erie, New York offers a wealth of opportunities for creating lasting memories with your furry family member.
Home prices, gas prices, and food expenses are high in most areas of New York, 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 New York
According to our internal Embrace Pet Insurance data, we covered over 43,000 claims in New York in 2023 at an average cost of $465 per claim. We find that New York pets experience a lot of Diarrhea, with normal costs for treatment averaging around $200 and going all the way up to over $2500! We also see a lot of coughs, with the average vet treatment costing over $250, but treatment can run over $4700 in New York. It’s no wonder why New Yorkers are turning to pet insurance coverage in increasing numbers to help cover these daunting expenses.

Embrace Pet Insurance has been amazing. I was leery of getting pet insurance, but this was preferred by USAA. We didn't have much need for the insurance year one, but our Blue Heeler has had some complications this year. Filing claims is simple and streamlined and I get direct deposit reimbursement within a couple of days. I couldn't be happier and will keep this coverage on all of my pets. I highly recommend Embrace to anyone in the market for pet insurance!
