Turpanion-insured pets have more than 8.5 million veterinary visits
Torpanion, which provides medical insurance for cats and dogs, announced on Sunday that it has paid more than $2 billion in veterinary bills. It has taken years and the company hit its latest milestone on December 28, 2022.
According to a company release, since 2020, the number of pets covered by Torpanion Insurance has exceeded 800,000. To date, the company’s insured pets have made more than 8.5 million veterinary visits.
Over the past three years, the company has paid over $959,000 a day to veterinarians and pet parents. According to Trupanion, pet veterinary insurance provides owners with financial peace of mind.
Margi Tooth, President of Torpanion, said: release. “We look forward to helping more pet parents budget for veterinary care should their pet become ill or injured.”
We crossed the $2 billion threshold in payments to treat Oliver, a 12-year-old mini longhair dachshund from Ontario, Canada, for gastroenteritis. The veterinary emergency hospital was paid directly within seconds at checkout, leaving Oliver in time to celebrate her New Year with tail wagging and wet nose kisses.
Like Oliver, hundreds of thousands of pet parents with Torpanions pay their veterinary bills in real time at checkout. This eliminates the need to pay the full bill up front, saves members waiting weeks for a refund, and allows veterinarians to recommend the best treatment. This allows pet parents to focus on their pet’s recovery rather than financial stress.
“For Oliver, and all the other dogs and cats out there, we will continue to work 24/7 to be there for you whenever you need us for years to come. A lot of pets and their parents,” added Tooth.
Whether it is a torn cruciate ligament in a dog or an ongoing allergy in a cat, nothing is too big or too little for an illness or injury. The maximum payout is $81,000 for treatment of aspiration pneumonia, adding a lot of stomachache to the life of a sweet English bulldog.
More than $2 billion has been paid to veterinarians and pet parents to extend the lives of pets. news release. January 16, 2023. Accessed January 16, 2023. – Paid to veterinarians and pet parents /default.aspx
