When it comes to unexpected illnesses, Petplan has you covered

With Petplan, unexpected illnesses are covered in our one simple plan.

Embrace doesn’t cover any illness that develops from injury. For example, if your pet gets a scratch that develops an infection—you won’t be covered unless you pay extra.

Petplan has your back if you're hospitalized

Should you require hospitalization for 4 days or more, we’ll cover up to $1,000 of your pet’s boarding fees.

Embrace doesn’t cover boarding fees, so if you’re ever hospitalized, you’ll need to pay someone else to take care of your pet.
