Beachwood, Ohio (PRWEB) November 17, 2011

Cabela’s, a leading specialty retailer, and the world’s largest direct marketer of hunting, fishing, camping and related outdoor merchandise, has launched Cabela’s Pet Insurance™. Designed specifically for dogs used for hunting and outdoor sports, Cabela’s Pet Insurance insures active dogs against costly accidents and illnesses by providing fast and worry-free reimbursement for veterinary and emergency bills. And, for peace of mind, Cabela’s Pet Insurance is backed by insurance that’s A+ rated by A.M. Best.

Every year, more than 1 in 3 pets falls ill or is injured. And while it’s amazing what veterinarians can do for our pets these days, a visit to the emergency room can quickly start to add up — to hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Many pet owners are not prepared financially to afford the level of care that modern veterinary medicine provides. Hunting and sporting dogs are particularly susceptible to many hazards, including gunshots, snake bites, muscle strains, lacerations, puncture wounds, car accidents, animal attacks, infections, heat stroke and injuries associated with scampering around in fields and forests.

Cabela’s Pet Insurance is managed by Embrace Pet Insurance, the country’s top-rated pet insurance company. Embrace was founded by dedicated pet parents who are on a mission to change the pet insurance business by making it affordable, dependable and predictable.

“When we talked to owners of sporting dogs, we were surprised by how much time and money they invest in their pets. Generally, these are expensive, purebred dogs with an extensive pedigree, that have been through years of costly training,” said Laura Bennett, CEO of Embrace Pet Insurance, the company that is backing Cabela’s Pet Insurance. “Unlike average pets, these dogs work very hard in the field and have an essential role in the pursuit of a sport. So it makes perfect sense to protect these dogs from the injuries such as a torn anterior crucial ligament (ACL) or a foxtail lodged in the nose.”

What is pet insurance and how does it work?

Pet insurance is gaining popularity with pet owners who never want to choose between an expensive veterinary treatment and their pet’s life. Just because your pet is happy and healthy today, doesn’t mean things will always be that way. Pet insurance helps you prepare for any eventuality. Unlike medical insurance for humans, Cabela’s Pet Insurance is quite simple. Pet owners may visit any general, specialist or emergency veterinarian when an accident or illness occurs. They pay the veterinarian and complete a claim form with the office staff. This is then submitted for reimbursement of the veterinary bills. Find out what is covered here.
