Australian expertise supported by a strong global pedigree
20 years putting pets first
Trupanion disrupted the North American pet insurance market two decades ago with an innovative approach to health insurance that puts pets first.
Trupanion was the first provider to offer a policy with no payout limits, and we pioneered the technology that allows us to pay claims direct to your vet at checkout.
Over 500,000 pets covered
Today we’re proud to cover more than 500,000 pets globally—and we’ve paid out more than a billion dollars (USD) in claims in North America alone.
Why we brought Trupanion to Australia
We want to bring our simple, high-quality cover with no payout limits to pet owners in Australia. We’re here because of our passion to help the pets we all love receive the best veterinary care—based on what’s best, not what’s affordable—for their entire life.
We want to follow the footsteps of Trupanion in North America and continue to innovate to give our members and most importantly, their pets, the best experience possible.
Our Australian journey
As a vet with 18 years of experience, Dr Steve was already well-versed in the benefits of pet insurance for his clients and their pets. He experienced firsthand the practical benefits of insurance, as well as the shortcomings of traditional pet insurance products. Pet parents forced to pay upfront for care and wait for a reimbursement cheque would also be frustrated by confusing limits and sublimits for cover.
The problem we’re trying to solve is simple: we want to help pet owners budget for veterinary expenses when their pet gets sick or hurt. No one can predict whether their pet will be “unlucky” and face many health issues or need expensive treatment.
A savings account can help pay for large, unexpected vet bills, but it’s only as good as what you put in. Trupanion members know they’ll always be able to get their pet the care they need—regardless of the cost.
