Does Trupanion cover breeding costs?
Note: If your pet is pregnant at the time of enrollment, the current pregnancy will be considered pre-existing, and related claims will therefore be ineligible for coverage.
What are the common health concerns associated with breeding pets?
Intact females have an increased desire to roam, which, if they are let outdoors, increases their risk of sustaining injuries in fights or auto accidents, or unwanted aggressive behavior from other animals.
Are C-sections covered?
Breeding coverage exclusions
If your pet underwent a C-section before being enrolled in a Trupanion policy, any future C-sections will not be covered. Exceptions for C-section and dystocia coverage include English Bulldogs, Pugs, Pekinese, Boston Terriers, French Bulldogs, or any combination thereof. Unfortunately, we cannot cover complications related to breeding / birthing for these breeds at this time.
Trupanion breeder coverage in real life
Avery, a one-year-old Sphynx cat from Vaudreuil-Dorion, Québec (Canada) was insured with Trupanion as a breeding cat. When Avery became pregnant, she suffered from a difficult labor, called dystocia. Avery was admitted to an emergency animal hospital where she received x-rays, ultrasounds, and labor-inducing medication, among other treatments. Because of Trupanion’s breeder coverage, Avery’s owner was able to save on 90% of the treatment costs and focus on getting Avery well again.
What isn’t covered
- Planned caesarean births (unless medically necessary)
- Routine prenatal examinations
- Pre-breeding tests
