FitBark partners with PetSure, Australia's largest pet insurance underwriter
We are thrilled to announce our exclusive partnership with PetSure to launch FitBark in the Australian market.
With 360,000 policy holders, an 85% market share, a network of 22 pet insurance brands as well as access to major retailers and pet healthcare providers in Australia, PetSure is an ideal partner to help us bring new pet health data sets to the insurance industry and beyond.
In the words of Alexandra Thomas, CEO of PetSure:
"FitBark encourages healthy habits for dogs and their owners, but more importantly, it can help pet parents and their vets to create better welfare outcomes for pets – something we’re really passionate about. It is also the first platform that brings a wealth of ‘real-world’ data on the behavior, activity and sleeping patterns of dogs to the pet insurance industry. These insights have great potential to help us shape future products and premiums.”
We are proud to help dogs and their owners stay healthy in over 110 countries. After launching in the US, Canada and the UK, Australia is the fourth country (and the third continent) where we are developing our retail presence.
