Boehringer Ingelheim and Trupanion Announce Pet Care Collaboration

SEATTLE — Pet insurance provider Trupanion Inc. and Boehringer Ingelheim announced a strategic collaboration to provide pets and their families with increased access to  healthcare and disease treatment and protection.

The companies will work together on continuing veterinarian and consumer education, product extensions, promotions, peer-reviewed publications and other efforts.

“We are excited to work with Trupanion because they are so closely aligned with our mission of creating a world where pets and those who care for them thrive,” said Daniel Watkins, who leads the Boehringer Ingelheim Pet business. “Our dedication to driving industry-leading advancements in animal disease treatments and prevention is a perfect complement to Trupanion’s best-in-class product, which increases access to exceptional care and helps pet caregivers protect their beloved pets throughout their life. By working together, we will open new doors in the animal health industry for the veterinary community and pet owners alike.”

This collaboration means that when pets are enrolled with Trupanion, their families will be able to opt in to receive dedicated information and support from Boehringer to help them manage their pet’s health.

“In addition, Boehringer will look to support Trupanion’s goal of ensuring all pets receive the best medical care possible through its vast veterinary relationships,” according to a press release.

More from the release:

Boehringer Ingelheim and Trupanion are both fully committed to supporting veterinarians, pets and their families through every step of their lifetime of care.

Trupanion’s market-leading growth stems from the difference it brings to the industry and its solution for unexpected costs of care. As the only pet medical insurance provider able to pay veterinarians directly at checkout in seconds, Trupanion eliminates the need for pet parents to submit a claim and wait for reimbursement. This allows families and veterinary hospitals to focus on pursuing the best treatment options instead of financial hurdles. With unlimited payouts for life, unique lifetime pricing, and 24/7/365 live support, Trupanion provides families and their pets with support when they need it most and has proudly paid nearly $3 billion in veterinary invoices on behalf of its members. With inflation, human-quality medical advancements, and other factors spurring historic increases to the cost of veterinary care, the need for high-quality, comprehensive medical insurance for pets has never been greater.

“We’re thrilled and humbled that Boehringer chose us as a partner. With this relationship, lifetime care meets lifetime coverage at a time when pet parents need us more than ever,” said Dr. Steve Weinrauch, BVMS, MRCVS, Chief Veterinary and Product Officer at Trupanion. “We couldn’t be more excited for the new ways we’ll be able to support pets, pet parents and the veterinary community through this collaboration moving forward.”
