Duke, our 14 month old Great Dane/Boxer Mix we adopted was in the ER Hospital due to GI issues 3 different times within a 2 1/2 week span. After extensive tests, Duke had ate the covering off a toy and it was stuck in his lower intestine, it passed thankfully. He did not have surgery, but the vet bills accumulated to over $4500. We had just passed our starting coverage period and I was not sure Embrace would come through, but they did with no problems. We are so thankful to have Embrace Insurance, they have been a wonderful company to work with and we are so pleased with there timeliness of response in working claims. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
