Recovery and Complementary Care Rider Coverage

As of August 1, 2014, the Recovery and Complementary Care Rider coverage is available in all of Canada and the following US states and the District of Columbia: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.

Trupanion includes veterinary-recommended acupuncture, behavioral modification, chiropractic treatment, homeopathy, hydrotherapy, naturopathy, and rehabilitative therapy in an optional Recovery and Complementary Care Rider, available for a cost to all new and existing policyholders.

These treatments are often used in combination with traditional veterinary medical and surgical therapies to assist in the treatment of accidents and illnesses. Their focus is on individualizing treatment, treating the whole pet as opposed to treating specific signs, and promoting self-healing and pain relief.

This optional Recovery and Complementary Care Rider is offered for a cost to all Trupanion policyholders—new and existing. New policyholders can choose this rider when enrolling. Existing policyholders can call our toll-free Customer Care Center at 888-733-2685 to add the rider to their policy.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a common form of integrative medicine that brings about a physiological response that relieves pain, treats and prevents certain diseases, prevents or eases nausea, and promotes general good health.

Behavioral modification

A systematic approach to changing behavior (including a pet’s reaction to a situation, a person, a thing, an animal, etc.) provided by, or under the supervision of, a registered and credentialed member of Certified Applied Animal Behaviorists.

Chiropractic

Chiropractic adjustments include spinal manipulation and/or manual therapy recommended and performed by a licensed veterinarian who is also a credentialed member of the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association.

Homeopathy

A system of health care that concentrates on care of the whole animal by methods that are specific, gentle, and sympathetic to the body’s needs. Homeopathy is based on the utilization of specially prepared, refined dilutions of natural substances intended to trigger a healing response in a patient. Homeopathic care must be provided by, or under the supervision of, a licensed veterinarian who is a registered and certified member of the Academy of Veterinary Homeopathy.

Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy involves the use of water to aid in the healing and/or conditioning of a patient. Pets either swim in a pool or tank for prescribed periods of time or walk on an underwater treadmill. Hydrotherapy is used in the treatment of osteoarthritis, orthopedic conditions, neurological conditions, and muscle, ligament, and other soft tissue injuries. It must be recommended by your veterinarian and provided by or under the supervision of a qualified professional (i.e., a registered and credentialed member of the Canine Rehabilitation Institute or the American Association of Rehabilitation Veterinarians).

Naturopathy

Naturopathy is a system of treatment of disease that avoids drugs and surgery and emphasizes the use of natural agents (air, water, and herbs) and physical means (tissue manipulation and electrotherapy). Naturopathy is a holistic approach founded on the belief that diet, mental state, exercise, breathing, and other natural factors are central to the origin and treatment of disease. Most naturopathic doctors use a variety of therapies and techniques (such as nutrition, behavior change, herbal medicine, homeopathy, and acupuncture).

Rehabilitative therapy

Physical or rehabilitative therapy is the use of therapeutic exercises and other healing modalities to help pets recover from acute and chronic health conditions resulting from illness, trauma, or surgery. It must be recommended by your veterinarian and provided by or under the supervision of a qualified professional (i.e., a registered and credentialed member of the Canine Rehabilitation Institute and/or the American Association of Rehabilitation Veterinarians).
