My big boy, Clarence, is a 165 lb. Irish Wolfhound. Several years ago I had outrageous medical expenses ($6200 and no insurance)for a 10 lb. kitty so I thought I had better purchase insurance for my big guy. Being a paralegal, I read through the details of every insurance company out there and was amazed at all the little "exceptions" that were hidden in the policies. Embrace was the only one where I felt it was very straightforward as to what it would cover. I was somewhat skeptical until I had some actual claims. Recently, my big boy had to have surgery which was thousands of dollars. After processing the claim in a very timely fashion, Embrace paid exactly what I expected. No exceptions, arguments, issues.... I could not be happier with my choice. I am strongly recommending to all my friends and family.
