I love the pictures of the +Embrace Pet Insurance pets and their peeps in this article

I just love our wellness coverage. If you are an Embraced pet parent, have you used it?
Wellness Gone Wild. Back in the day, old school Embracer philosophy was that insurance was for “unexpected things,” the big stuff. Broken legs, swallowed tennis balls, cancer, diabetes, and so on... But, after a few years, we started noticing a trend. Pet parents wanted to “use” their insurance, ...

Guest Post: Pet First Aid Tips from Dr. Rex Riggs. Pet First Aid In an effort to make things safer for both pet and pet parent, we asked Dr. Rex Riggs what points about first aid he would most want to share with his clients. While some of his reminders may seem like common sense, ...

I had no idea so many dogs died from collar strangulation :(
Collar Safety Awareness Week Kick-Off. Collar Safety Awareness Week We were all shocked and dismayed when one of our policyholders called to tell us the awful story of her dog's accidental death. It seems her two small dogs had been alone in the home mid-day and in the course of playing or ...

Just some of the ways you can make a visit to the vet much more pleasant for your pets, and you
Visits to the vet don't have to be traumatic. The old logic goes that each year in our pet's lives is equal to 7 human years, and while I think that it should be estimated a bit closer to 5, there's still a big leap in “time” between a pet's birthdays. Think about how much can change within you ...

I have had chiropractic treatment before with success, but I was quite skeptical that the nutrition element would be effective - I'm a scientist at heart. Having said that, I have been really delighted with the impact of Dr St John's care and the supplements I'm taking. I used to have frequent headaches and started to feel that my body was not cooperating with my health goals, despite my workout schedule, but since starting with Dr St John (I've been going nearly 3 years now, maybe longer), I've felt like I've turned a corner, despite turning 50. I'd definitely recommend working with Dr St John
