Hill’s and Trupanion have a shared goal of providing pet owners with the tools they need to extend the health and happiness of their pets.
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) January 17, 2012
Trupanion, the nation’s fastest-growing pet insurance provider, today announced an agreement with Hill’s Pet Nutrition, a company that offers a full line of therapeutic and wellness pet foods including the Hill’s® Prescription Diet® pet foods and Science Diet® Healthy Advantage™ pet food. Trupanion recently added this type of therapeutic food to its coverage, including policy discounts for continued feeding.
“We believe Hill’s offers a quality line of products that many pet owners may already be using to improve the health of their pets,” said Darryl Rawlings, Chief Executive Officer at Trupanion. “We look forward to being able to bring even more awareness of the benefits of these products and others to our policyholders.”
Hill’s offers a variety of nutritional pet foods that are specifically formulated to make a difference in each phase of a pet's life, from rambunctious adolescence to the senior years. The Hill’s team of veterinarians and board-certified specialists in nutrition and internal medicine continuously work to create new products and improve existing products that will help pets live a long, healthy, and full life.
Hill’s also offers dozens of products designed to help pets with a variety of health conditions that impact kidney health, urinary health, diabetes, and heart health. These products not only meet nutritional needs, but also avoid excess nutrients such as salt and fat that can be harmful over time.
“Hill’s and Trupanion have a shared goal of providing pet owners with the tools they need to extend the health and happiness of their pets,” said Janet Donlin, D.V.M., chief veterinary officer at Hill’s. “It made sense to work together so we can have an even bigger impact.”
Trupanion recently expanded coverage to include the cost of two month’s worth of therapeutic food as well as the cost of dietary supplements when recommended by a veterinarian for a identified health condition. Trupanion is the only pet insurance provider to offer therapeutic food and supplements in their core coverage.
