Insuring Your Pet in Ohio

Unexpected vet bills can make you say uh-O-H, but with pet insurance from Embrace, you can focus on getting your furry family member back to health without worrying about the cost of treatment. Coverage is offered at every neighborhood vet from Cleveland to Cincinnati, Toledo to Youngstown- just about everywhere throughout the Buckeye State.

Why We Recommend Pet Insurance if You Live in Ohio

Sometimes our four-legged friends find themselves in a “ruff” spot. In Ohio, everything from the change of seasons, to tiny bugs, harsh weather and unexpected accidents can cause problems for our pets. We've compiled a list of claims from the Buckeye State, and here are some of the most common concerns our Ohio pet parents have:

Allergies

Did you know your pet can suffer from seasonal allergies? In fact, we see allergies as the top diagnosed condition among pets covered throughout the Buckeye State. Allergies may be recurring and require prescription medication. Luckily, pet insurance from Embrace covers it, so you and your pet can enjoy all four seasons that the great state of Ohio has to offer.

Ticks & Fleas

You might not think of Ohio as a warm weather climate, but the heat and humidity that we experience throughout the summer are enough to put your pet at risk for ticks and fleas. Luckily, our Embrace policyholders can choose to add Wellness Rewards to their policy for proactive, routine care including tick and flea prevention.

Extreme Weather

Ohio’s weather varies from season to season, putting dogs and cats at risk for seasonal illnesses and injuries. Cold winter weather may cause pets to suffer from frostbite or hypothermia. Hot, humid weather may lead to overheating and dehydration. With pet insurance, you can be prepared to protect your pet's health and safety, no matter what the weather forecast is.

Unexpected Accidents

We do our best to keep our pets safe and healthy, but accidents and illnesses are inevitable. Whether it’s a torn ligament from fetching too hard or an upset stomach from an accidental ingestion, we don’t want to see our pets in pain. Some may take the chance and address these accidents when they arise; others invest in pet insurance to protect their pet and receive rewards for proactive care.

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. 

How Does Pet Insurance Work in Ohio?

We make the claims process so easy your pet could practically do it. Get an itemized invoice and the diagnosis from your vet and take a picture to submit. That's all you need when you submit your claim via your MyEmbrace customer account – because who has time to print and fax or snail mail? Voila. You’re done!  

We even offer direct deposit so you can get reimbursed quicker.
