Pet Insurance Reviews from Dachshund Owners

10/10   Embrace is Fair and Dependable!
Embrace continues to pay promptly and I am grateful. My Doxie Meggy (Who is my Heart) has had a few episodes of Vestibular Disease as well as gastrointestinal problems. Happy to say she is getting great care and I am grateful for the help from Embrace Pet Insurance. I felt confident about them when I signed up as they were recommended by USAA Insurance. I have recommended them to my friends also.

10/10   Doxie Disaster turns out Fine
My poor doxie went from well to paralyzed in just 24 hours without incident and i was facing an $8K surgery, and the hospital needed an answer right then and there. As my husband paced the floor of the clinic sweating, I said, don't worry, PetPlan covers disk disease in dogs with no prior history. I tried to look confident as I questioned this in my mind. A look of disbelief covered his face as i turned to the doctor and said, "please do the surgery now." I took home my baby a few days later and submitted the claim. I had enough to worry about as he was very slow to even stand up again, that I didn't want to have to fight over an insurance claim. I was asked to submit all of the necessary notes and not to worry. Sure enough, my claim was paid without a hassle. My doxie is now a year out of surgery and back to playing and even running. Thank you PetPlan - especially Justin Worthington - for all of your kind reassurance and information. Truly professionals!!

5/10   Used to be good but they are slipping
When I started out the rates were a little high but I felt it was worth it to know that my dogs' health would be taken care of and their customer service was FANTASTIC. Recently I feel like my rates are really going up and not all of my claims are being reimbursed in full, it also takes upwards of 30 days to process my claim. Customer service is now just so-so. In my opinion they have slipped since being bought by Nationwide. I would recommend for younger dogs with NO preexisting conditions but not for older dogs.

10/10   Provided best care ever!
Winston, our 7 year old dachshund, got under the wheel of a rolling car while out camping. The tire was sitting on his head. After he regained consciousness, we went home and then to a 24 hour vet clinic where he got excellent care. After spending the night in ICU, he was able to go home. I didn't know exactly what my ASPCA medical insurance would cover, but I felt confident I could let the pet hospital do whatever was necessary and the expenses would be covered. I was exactly right. I was promptly reimbursed 70% of this costly incident. I couldn't have been more pleased with how my claim was handled.

10/10   Very Grateful!
I was terrified when my dog was diagnosed with intervertebral disc disease. I hated seeing my poor boy in pain and I also had to worry about how I could pay for all of the treatments. Embrace has been very helpful in reimbursing me very quickly. I was initially confused about the process, but I spoke to someone on the phone who was very patient and explained things very clearly to me. I appreciate Embrace and would recommend them to anyone with pets!

10/10   Pet insurance with a heart
I have two miniature dachshunds and they are my pride and joy. Before I got them I did a lot of research on which breed would best suit my lifestyle, and all books about dachshunds mention that back problems (IVDD specifically) are a real risk. I have wanted a dog for all of my life but have always considered them to be a responsibility to be taken very seriously. Although I am now in a great situation to finally have pets, an expensive vet bill is still a risk (and IVDD treatments can cost up to $10,000). Getting a pet insurance was therefore a no brainer for us. Because my husband and I are with USAA, we were recommended Embrace Insurance. After doing some research, it seemed like one of the best pet insurance out there. We have been very diligent in sending Embrace any update (microchip and neuter status), and waived the waiting period for both our dogs by submitting an orthopedic exam from our vet. Last month, Cashew started acting weird and was diagnosed with paraparesis, a sign of IVDD. Our vet recommended immediate action for his pain and comfort, as well as a solid rehab program for the future. When I called Embrace to check that these items would be covered, they were extremely helpful on the phone as well as compassionate (it was a really hard time for me, knowing that my baby was in pain). I also asked my vet to fill in the pre-certification form for all our future expenses, including acupuncture, laser therapy, electrical stimulation and a complete rehab package, and got a very quick response from Embrace that it would be covered. It's now been more than three weeks since Cashew's condition has been diagnosed and he is back at 95%!! Our vet has done a fabulous job, but Embrace also deserve a huge thank you. They were quick and lovely to deal with, and I cannot recommend them enough. In my opinion, being worried about your pet's health is horrible enough, being worried about paying for care is a nightmare you really don't need. Embrace made it so that I could concentrate on the important things and do whatever was necessary for my baby to get better!

9/10   Worth it.
I've had PetPlan insurance for my miniature dachshund for several years now. After a major health scare that wound up OK, but could have been much worse, I decided that worrying about money in the midst of crises like these is the worst feeling in the world. After seeing how PetPlan doesn't discriminate for most conditions, I chose them. Glad I did! Every time I've made a claim it's processed in a reasonable amount of time, and I've never once had to argue with them about coverage or discovered shady fine print that I felt tricked over. Most recently we've been dealing with a very scary diagnosis of inflammatory bowel disease and they've continued to be great. The only downside is that you have to be able to front everything up front. So if you don't have $5,000 to cover the emergency surgery, this won't help. PetPlan makes all of this very clear, just an FYI. Also, there have been a few instances where their math has been incorrect and I've had to bring some errors to their attention. In all cases, they acknowledged their mistake and made it right. So if fronting the necessary funds isn't an issue and you're comfortable paying some sizable funds as your dog gets older, I definitely recommend PetPlan.
