Trupanion Expands to Australia

Trupanion has announced its expansion into Australia. The Australia launch is the first major overseas move for Trupanion outside of North America.

“This is another important milestone in the history of our company. We’re excited to offer our unique coverage to pet owners ‘down under’.” – Trupanion founder and CEO Darryl Rawlings.

The Trupanion model is developed in partnership with veterinarians and at its core, the love of pets. The product has been built with input from veterinarians, and has a successful 20-year history, insuring more than 500k pets in the US, Canada and Puerto Rico.

“In North America, we continue to see the growth in insured pets rise as pet owners understand the value of high-quality medical insurance for their pets. With only six percent of pets in Australia currently insured, we look forward to introducing our product and helping educate pet owners on the value and importance of insuring their pets with high-quality coverage. We remain committed and deep-rooted to the veterinary industry and are happy that Dr. Stephen Rose, DVM, will lead the charge for Trupanion Australia as our general manager. He is passionate about pet health, and will lead our efforts to reach pet owners with a product that is dramatically different from current offerings so that we can take better care of the pets we love.” – Rawlings.

Protecting pets in Australia was a key focus for Dr. Rose, who scoured the best pet insurance offerings worldwide for a product that would make a real difference to both pets and their loving families.

Trupanion Australia is a partnership between Trupanion and Hollard.
