Embrace Pet Insurance Review

Embrace offers a comprehensive health plan for accidents and illnesses, with the option to purchase an extra package related to wellness care. For pets that don’t qualify for the comprehensive plan because of age or health, Embrace offers an accident-only plan.

Embrace customers also have free online access 24/7 to veterinarians for questions.
