(PR.com) July 19, 2011 — Trupanion, the nation’s fastest growing pet health insurance provider, has announced an expansion into Puerto Rico effective immediately. Trupanion is the first pet insurance provider to offer a policy to dog and cat owners in Puerto Rico.
While pet insurance has been available in the United States for decades, no provider has ventured into the unincorporated territory of Puerto Rico until now.
“This expansion will allow us to meet the needs of thousands of pet owners who have not had access to pet health insurance in the past,” said Darryl Rawlings, Chief Executive Officer at Trupanion. “We look forward to adding many of these pet owners to the Trupanion family.”
Residents of Puerto Rico can now obtain free quotes and enroll online at www.trupanion.com, or by phone at 800.569.7913.
Pet insurance covers the cost of unexpected accidents and illnesses in pets. Trupanion offers a lifetime pet insurance policy for dogs and cats with 90% coverage and no payout limits per claim or per year.
