Pet medical insurance provider Trupanion and Boehringer Ingelheim, an innovator in animal disease prevention and treatment, have announced a strategic collaboration that aims to enhance access to high-quality healthcare and improve disease treatment and protection for pets.

The collaboration leverages both companies’ expertise and data to identify early risk factors for common pet conditions. This initiative supports early detection and better disease management.

The partnership will also focus on veterinarian and consumer education, product extensions, promotions, peer-reviewed publications, and other efforts to advance pet healthcare.

With this partnership, families enrolling their pets with Trupanion can opt to receive information and support from Boehringer to manage their pet’s health. Boehringer will also support Trupanion’s goal of ensuring all pets receive the best medical care possible through its extensive veterinary relationships.

Both companies also affirmed their commitment to supporting veterinarians, pets, and their families throughout their lifetimes.

Trupanion offers unlimited payouts for life, unique lifetime pricing, and 24/7/365 live support, and has paid nearly $3 billion in veterinary invoices for its members. The rising costs of veterinary care, driven by inflation and medical advancements, underscore the need for high-quality, comprehensive medical insurance for pets.

“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,” Boehringer Ingelheim Pet business head Daniel Watkins said.

He noted that Boehringer’s advancements in animal disease treatments complement Trupanion’s product, which helps pet caregivers protect their pets throughout their lives. Watkins believes the collaboration will open new opportunities in the animal health industry for both the veterinary community and pet owners.

“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, Trupanion chief veterinary and product officer.
