Boehringer Ingelheim and Trupanion announce exclusive collaboration

Trupanion and Boehringer Ingelheim, “one of the largest innovators in animal disease prevention and treatment globally,” announced a strategic collaboration to provide pets and their families increased access to high-quality healthcare and enhanced disease treatment and protection.

The collaboration will allow the companies to leverage their collective expertise and data to derive insights which will enable the early detection of risk factors for common conditions affecting pets. The companies will work together on continuing veterinarian and consumer education, product extensions, promotions, peer-reviewed publications, and other efforts in support of pet healthcare.

As part of the partnership, when a pet is enrolled with Trupanion, their families will be able to opt in to receive information and support from Boehringer to help them manage their pet’s health. In addition, Boehringer will look to support Trupanion’s goal of ensuring all pets receive the best medical care possible through its vast veterinary relationships.

“We are excited to work with Trupanion because they are so closely aligned with our mission of creating a world where pets and those who care for them thrive. Our dedication to driving industry-leading advancements in animal disease treatments and prevention is a perfect complement to Trupanion’s best-in-class product, which increases access to exceptional care and helps pet caregivers protect their beloved pets throughout their life. By working together, we will open new doors in the animal health industry for the veterinary community and pet owners alike.” – Daniel Watkins, who leads the Boehringer Ingelheim Pet business.

“We’re thrilled and humbled that Boehringer chose us as a partner. With this relationship, lifetime care meets lifetime coverage at a time when pet parents need us more than ever. We couldn’t be more excited for the new ways we’ll be able to support pets, pet parents and the veterinary community through this collaboration moving forward.” – Dr. Steve Weinrauch, BVMS, MRCVS, Chief Veterinary and Product Officer at Trupanion.
