Why We Recommend Pet Insurance if You Live in Oregon

No matter the age or breed, all pets are bound to experience a mishap or two at some point. In Oregon, pet problems are most likely to come from seasonal allergies, anxiety, extreme weather, and unexpected accidents.

Having pet insurance ensures that you can afford to give your best friend the best care when unforeseen accidents and illnesses arise.

We’ve compiled a list of the most common concerns our pet parents in Oregon face:

Allergies

We see allergies as one of the top diagnosed conditions from our pets covered throughout the state of Oregon. Caused by the changes in weather throughout the seasons, allergies may reoccur year after year. Thankfully, pet insurance from Embrace covers the necessary medication and treatment, so you and your furry friend can continue enjoying the beauty of the Pacific Northwest together, rain or shine.

Anxiety

Anxiety is another common diagnosis among dogs and cats in the state of Oregon. Just as in humans, anxiety can cause emotional discomfort in pets, which they may show through physical signs. Some cues that may point to distress include vocalization, destructive behavior, or accidents in the house. If home remedies for comforting your pet aren’t working, your dog or cat may require a trip to the vet, which could result in costly prescription medication. With a policy from Embrace, you’ll be reimbursed for the vet visit as well as the cost of any treatment and follow-up care.

Extreme Weather

The climate and potentially severe weather throughout the state of Oregon put pets at risk for seasonal accidents and illnesses. Frost bite and hypothermia from cold winter weather may require an unexpected trip to the vet. And when heat waves hit the west coast, hot and humid weather could put your pet in jeopardy of overheating and dehydration. Investing in pet insurance will make sure you’re prepared to protect your pet’s health and safety in the future, no matter the weather.

Unexpected Accidents

Even the most diligent pet parent can’t protect their pet from everything – unexpected accidents and illnesses are inevitable. You might take the chance and deal with these accidents when they arise, or you could invest in pet insurance to protect your furry friend from future accidents.

Stories from Some of our Oregon Pet Parents

Tygon - Greyhound

Tygon the Greyhound from Beaverton

"After consulting the vet, we decided to try a dog chiropractor instead of more invasive procedures. I was very skeptical about it but it has worked wonders on him. Today, he sees the chiropractor a couple times a year.

This keeps him happy and pain-free so he can be his goofy self."

Bob the Pug from Portland

"Embrace told me how to submit the forms, what would be covered and how long reimbursement would be. It happened exactly like I was told - no problems, no hitches. For these reasons I then told a co-worker - who had just gotten a puppy - about Embrace.

Bob is great now! She is constantly tired and hungry, just like any self-respecting Pug should be."

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.
