Pets are family. And for millennials, they are like starter kids. However, taking care of a pet is harder than it looks, especially with vet costs increasing 73% over the last 10 years because of pet healthcare advancements. Unlike before, procedures like CT scans, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy are now readily available. Cancer treatments can start at $6,000 and can easily go over $10,000. An ACL tear can cost $5,400 per knee. Last year, $30B was spent on vet care alone. Costs have risen to the point where it isn’t feasible to pay out of pocket anymore.
When Catherine Dennig’s cat, Simba, was diagnosed with lymphosarcoma, the cost for treatment was over $12,000. What should’ve been a medical decision became a financial one. Before she could even decide what to do Simba passed away just a week after being diagnosed. Many pet owners don’t realize how expensive vet care can be until they’re faced with a large bill. It dawned on her and her Co-Founder, Keji Xu, that they could do something about it – and this is how Fursure was born.
“Fursure is a pet insurance marketplace for pet parents to understand and buy insurance, manage policies, and submit claims. Fursure personalizes your options based on your pet’s breed, age, lifestyle, zip code and budget.
