Here at Petsy, we’re a little on the pet crazy side but we wouldn’t have it any other way.
Pets make people happier and healthier and luckily, Australia is one of the most pet-friendly nations in the world. More than half of all Aussies choose to share their lives and homes with their amazing furry companions, and this includes a whopping 4.8 million dogs and 3.9 million cats!
Currently, 9 out of 10 of these companion pets in Australia are NOT insured,* yet a third of all cats and nearly half of all the dogs in Australia suffer from some form of health hiccup.^
We’re no superheroes but we seriously believe this needs to change. So, we launched Petsy and our mission begins.
The world of pets has changed in recent years with more animals moving inside to share our homes and lives and becoming not only our fur babies but playing a very important part of the modern-day family. Our role as a pet parent has also changed and owning a pet means that you are responsible for your pet’s nutrition, lifestyle and medical care for their entire lives.
With the exponential advances in veterinary science and medicine, pet owners now have the option to seek specialist treatment and the best possible care should their pet need it during their lifetime. However, these major advances in technology don’t come without costs and this is where pet insurance comes in.
Pet Insurance plays an important role in making sure that your pets can receive the care that they need if something unexpectedly goes wrong. We don’t ever want a pet owner to have to choose between finances and the well-being of their pet and pet insurance helps to provide pet owners with both financial and emotional peace of mind.
Whilst there are a lot of things in life we can’t control, we like to focus on the things that we can and making sure that the ones you love are protected when it counts is one of them.
The future of pets is exciting and we’re thrilled to be part of the change to keep them happier and healthier for longer.
