I have a healthy dog who is 8 years old. She recently went to the hospital for bloody stool, diarrhea, and excessive dry heaving. Similar symptoms to a blockage in her intestines.. it was very scary as she is normally a very healthy happy pup. Thank goodness- there were no serious issues. She had a bunch of tests ran and the vet bill was approximately $1000.00. The claim was denied because my dog had gone to the vet for throwing up and having diarrhea in the past (not to mention she wasn't throwing up- she was excessively dry heaving this time). EMBRACE claims that having diarrhea is a preexisting condition-- I disagree- it is a symptom of being ill which is why you take your dog to the vet. She was given an actual diagnosis of Acute Gastroenteristis. She was given a clean bill of health from all blood tests and x-rays. Yet- they will not reimburse. I am dropping the insurance and completely disappointed in the experience. It feels very fraudulent. I warn anyone who thinks dog insurance is a good idea- it is not. They take your money and give you nothing.
