As you may already know, firefighters and even members of the public, have been stepping in and battling the ferocious wildfires that are burning and spreading through Australia. More than 17 million acres of land has been scorched, at least 26 people have died and roughly 2000 homes have sadly been destroyed.
Terrifyingly, one billion animals could be affected by these fires and sadly 30 percent of the Koala population is believed to have been killed already.
Everyone at Vetsure has been devastated to see and hear about how the Australian Wildfires are affecting both people and animals involved. The reality is truly terrifying and has really hit home here at Vetsure. One of our members, Dave Kemp from Axe Valley Vets in Somerset, contacted us after having watched a video posted by a vet who used to work for him, Kate Toyer, Director of Eurocoast Vets in Surf Beach, NSW. Kate narrowly missed losing her veterinary practice in the fires that were raging through her local community. Her clients have lost everything – their homes, pets, and the beautiful surroundings and wildlife they cherished and loved, have now been destroyed.
That is why, we have set up a fundraising page to support Friends of Australian Wildlife Conservancy. Their team are working tirelessly 24/7 to send your donation to various organisations who are tackling this crisis. All donations will go towards saving and recovering wildlife and their habitats.
So please, give whatever you can afford and together, hopefully, we can make a small impact to those affected by this devastation.
We thank you all for your support.
The Vetsure Team.
Vetsure are easy to deal with and always answer any questions comprehensively and positively.
- Nicola Hardcastle, Oakmount Vets
Cheesy but true, I love that I can email a query over and it is dealt with straight away (or as soon as the office is open if I have emailed over the weekend). Everyone I speak to (and email) is so cheerful – just a pleasure to deal with – this certainly makes you stand head and shoulders above the rest.

Vetsure are more than ‘just’ a buying group and insurance provider. The icing on the cake to what they offer is a very useful graduate support online training program which provides a structured approach (with templates) to help take a recent graduate safely and steadily through from their first day to full integration into the practice team. Worth joining for that alone!
- Anna Judson, Camlas Petcare Vets
Love that you can just pick up the phone and speak to and friendly, helpful and knowledgeable person! It’s great!
- Kevin Walters, Damory Vets
The Vetsure approach demonstrates a clear understanding of modern veterinary practice from both a business and clinical perspective… I believe that this model will shape the future of pet insurance in the UK.
