For pet parents in California, snake bites are a real and serious danger. One snake bite is bad enough but Aragon got three in the span of eight months. Aragon’s pet parent, Joleen S. tells us about Aragon’s snake encounters:

“Things just happen…even when you’ve done everything right. Aragon, my one-year old Great Dane, placed his big nose on a rather curious looking ‘stick’ next to the garage. It was a baby rattlesnake! Ouch! Off to the pet hospital we went. Due to our rapid response and 2 vials of anti-venom, he quickly recovered.

Even with rattlesnake avoidance training, his curiosity of snakes continued five months later as he encountered another rattlesnake with a vengeance against Great Dane puppies. Another emergency trip and two more vials of anti-venom. At this point, I was really glad I had Embrace Pet Insurance!

Unfortunately, the story doesn’t end there. In California, we had warm weather late in the fall and the snakes were still out crawling around. In early November, Aragon encountered his third angry rattlesnake. The good news is this bite only required one vial of anti-venom.

I can’t thank Embrace Pet Insurance enough for their quick response and caring attitude with our multiple claims. During these very stressful situations, I was able to completely focus on getting the immediate care that my dog needed without the added stress of a very large, unanticipated vet expense. Thank you Embrace from both myself and Aragon! recommends you take the next steps to protect your dog. Get a free quote from Embrace Pet Insurance today.
