Trupanion enrolls the first dog-cat hybrid breed with pet insurance.
Seattle, WA – Trupanion, an international pet insurance company, is proud to announce the pet insurance enrollment of the first dog-cat hybrid breed. Trupanion is the first pet insurance company to insure a dog-cat hybrid animal.
“We are pleased to approve coverage for this pet,” says Darryl Rawlings, CEO of Trupanion. “Our policy covers dogs and cats and there are no breed exclusions, so technically, it falls within the policy.”
Butters is a dog-cat hybrid belonging to Sharon Thompson from Dallas, Texas and was the only kit-puppy to survive from a litter of three. “Butters is my baby,” says Thompson, “I knew Trupanion was the right choice when it came to insuring my pet because I wanted to be sure that I can always afford any medical treatments he might need.”
Trupanion plans to spread awareness about the importance of pet health insurance and financial planning for pet-related expenses and wishes everyone a happy April Fool’s Day.
