Augie, our yellow lab who just turned 3 years old, had eaten something and spent the day at the vet's office. Spent the next five days at home on a bread and water diet. The claim was submitted the next day (7/23/12) and we received payment directly into our account on 8/16/12. As I've mentioned in other reviews, we own a dog grooming shop and hand out pamphlets to our customers for Embrace insurance. We refer people at our dog park and at the dog beach. We couldn't be happier. Thank you Embrace!
