Experts and customers praise Embrace for its highly customizable plans; you can choose not only your annual deductible and maximum and your co-pay percentage, but also whether or not your plan will cover prescriptions and treatment for dental illnesses. You can also choose to add a wellness plan for preventive care. Embrace will not insure dogs or cats with diabetes or Cushing's disease, and if your pet has a pre-existing orthopedic condition on one side of its body, such a condition on the other side will be considered pre-existing as well. If you'd prefer a simple plan that costs less and gives you a 25 percent discount on all veterinary services, experts recommend Pet Assure (*Est. $10 per month dogs, $6 per month cats).
