Imagine if you could enroll your baby kitten or puppy in medical insurance from birth? We are pleased to announce that medical insurance coverage for baby pets is now available through Trupanion medical insurance. As a pet-industry leader, we want to offer peace of mind. Now we can help provide true life-long support for your pet as they transition from baby to adolescent to senior. Naturally, we see pets as family, and that means being able to support the smallest paws in the family. Read on to learn more about medical insurance coverage for baby pets and what that can mean for your pet’s lifetime journey.

Trupanion: opens up medical insurance coverage for baby pets – starting at birth

True life-long support

From day one of your pet’s life, you now have the option to enroll your puppy or kitten with Trupanion. By expanding the policy to enroll puppies and kittens from zero – seven weeks of age, in the U.S. and Canada, we can provide true lifelong support for our pets. Most importantly, we can be there for your pet’s journey right from the start, beginning at birth.

The truth about pre-existing conditions

Pet owners often have concerns or questions regarding pre-existing conditions and if their pet will have medical coverage.

For example, a pre-existing condition is an injury or illness that show signs before coverage begins.

For this reason, by expanding the age bracket in our policy, fewer pets will have issues with pre-existing conditions and can enroll their puppy or kitten while they are a baby, and young and healthy.

Prepare for the unexpected

Certainly, we all know puppies and kittens are adorable. But they are also known for getting into things they shouldn’t and growing developmentally at a rapid rate, just to name some of the joys of pet ownership.

Naturally, puppies and kittens sure have a way of keeping us on our toes.

Further, there is no way to fully puppy or kitten proof every aspect of life. Because of this, the option to enroll in medical insurance for your baby pets can help you prepare for any unexpected accidents or illnesses that might occur.

Most of all, the importance of medical insurance coverage for baby pets is clear.

We are excited to provide coverage starting from birth and reduce the possibility of pre-existing conditions impacting coverage. Likewise, by no longer having to wait for your pet to be a certain age to enroll, we can deliver more to our Trupanion members and meet the needs of their puppy or kitten.
