Literally, a lifesaver!

We cannot praise Trupanion and its staff highly enough. Although we deliberately chose dogs whose breed is known to have few genetic problems, our daughter (who is an emergency veterinarian in a different city) encouraged us to purchase medical insurance for them. We are so glad we did, AND that we chose Trupanion! We have made claims for both dogs during the past 3+ years; every claim was processed within just a few days, with confirmation by e-mail, and a cheque received within two weeks at the very most. One of our dogs has had significant health problems over the past 10 months, beginning with a critical illness requiring emergency treatment and hospitalization. The knowledge that Trupanion would reimburse 90% of our veterinary expenses enabled us to make rapid decisions about diagnostics and treatment - I have no doubt this contributed to a positive outcome. Having insurance also enabled us to pursue further diagnostic testing, identify an underlying problem, and provide ongoing medication essential to restore and maintain his quality of life. We are thrilled to have our devoted companion healthy again, and our other dog is happy her buddy is back to his normal self. We didn't insure our dogs until they were age 8 and 5, but even with the exclusion of pre-existing conditions, the benefits of Trupanion have been amazing. I wouldn't consider bringing another pet into my home without immediately insuring it through Trupanion.

Onset of dental problems

My 9-yr-old cat Isabel had never had any medical or dental problems. But after spending a great deal of money trying to take care of my other cat (who subsequently died), I decided to purchase Pet Insurance for Isabel Less than 2 years later, Isabel developed gum disease and needed treatment, an extraction, and medications. ASPCA Pet Insurance re-imbursed me for over $600 of the cost. A godsend!

Husband skeptic is now glad we have Embrace

My husband was very skeptical when I suggested pet insurance for our new rescue. He advised they will take our money and we will never see any in return. He is now SO GLAD I FOUND EMBRACE. There were several different companies to choose from and we are so glad we chose Embrace. It was recently renewal time and after much review of other companies we renewed with Embrace. They are just the best option and coverage for the price! I recently had to reach out due to a special circumstance. I have to admit i was not sure how the situation would be handled but I am very impressed with the result. Thank You Embrace for giving us peace of mind for our new found friend. Not only did we save a dog's life she is returning the favor. This wonderful dog we rescued alerts our 5 year old son's seizures. She just started doing it all on her own. We are greatful for her and were are thankful that Embrace will help us take care of her so that she can help us take care of our son.

Great service

We've had Trupanion health insurance for our dog for 2-3 years. He had been very healthy, but developed cancer. He subsequently had 2 successful surgeries. Trupanion paid most of the cost of his treatment. They reviewed the case promptly, and paid the insured amount within a couple of weeks. Excellent coverage for the cost of the policy and super service. A nice feature of Trupanion is the ability to adjust the deductible and rate to suit your finances and the needs of your pet(s).

Best purchase I ever made

After having 2 cocker spaniels with no insurance and thousand of dollars later, I learned my lesson with the new puppy Sadie. We had her for a month and she ate everything she could. After 2 monthes they found she had a very sensitive stomach. With a pile of vet bills, we only had to pay a small part and the insurance paid the rest. What peace of mind we have taking her to the vet now that we are insured.

Personal care for my pet

Embrace has provided the most personal service to us and has been wonderfully helpful for the three years since we adopted our dog. As newcomers to pet insurance, we have found it to be a wonderful experience through Embrace. We receive personal communications about claims and our policy and any changes and every inquiry is well received and promptly handled. We also love having the wellness plan as it saves us money year over year in caring for our pup.

Very ill informed customer service

First phone call to determine they received the claims from the two medical providers. I followed up with both providers and they immediately re sent the claims. A second call to check on the status, they said it would be processed immediately nothing else was needed. I called a third time to check on the progress and was told that they needed 12 months of medical records from my vet. I was annoyed bur called my vet and they were sent the same day. There were two providers, I received one check and they took what they considered standard cost and then only 80% of that. Which resulted in only a 67.95% of the actual bill. I called a fourth time and was told the claim in the claims department and would be processed. Claims does not work on weekends. Why both claims were not processed together is incomprehensible as the illness was tied together. Each customer service person I spoke with appeared to be less competent than the person before. If ASPCA is one of the best, we are in trouble.

Recommended

I'm very pleased with Embrace thus far. The claims have been treated fairly and quickly with courtesy. This is my first experiance with pet insurance and I pretty much went with the maximum options. We had a cat that had a rough year with an indoor accident and then cancer. We did not have pet insurance for him and certainly wish we would have. I decided with the two new cats, (all our cats have been rescue animals from the SPCA), we would have the pet insurance. I researched this subject very extensively and found Embrace to be the best with the most options and fair pricing.
