Department of Veterans Affairs
Trupanion is honored to work with the US Department of Veterans Affairs to help Veterans receive veterinary care for their approved service dogs.
We work in tandem with the US Department of Veterans Affairs to assist veterans and their service dogs. Veterans may take their approved service dogs to any veterinarian in the US, Canada, and Puerto Rico and we will pay all eligible expenses including check-ups, medical care, and emergencies.
Veterinary Care for your Service Dog
If you have a service dog from an accredited agency you may be able to get veterinary care for it from the VA.
Veterans who have their own medically approved service dogs are able to access comprehensive veterinary services from the VA. This care includes annual visits for preventive care and maintenance care (e.g., immunizations, dental cleanings, screenings, etc.), as well as urgent/emergent care, prescription medications, and care for chronic illnesses and/or disorders when treatment enables the dog to perform its duties in service to the veteran.
