Pet Sitting Checklist:

How To Ensure Your Pet Is in Good Hands

In the care of a pet sitter, it’s essential to ensure that they know what to do in the case of an emergency and when vet care may be needed.

That’s where Fursure comes in—creating a Pet Sitter checklist, an insurance marketplace, and launching a first-of-its-kind pet debit card to pay veterinary bills.

After facing a health crisis with her cat Simba while a college student, CEO and Co-Founder Catherine Dennig had to make a heartbreaking decision to let her pet go when the $12,000 cost of treatment was simply more than she could bear. It was this experience that led to the creation of Fursure.

They started thinking about the thousands of pets being left in the hand of caretakers (it is estimated there are 185 million pets in America) and what critical items pets sitters needed to know. That’s how their Pet Sitters Checklist was born.

1. Make sure your pet’s insurance policy information is readily available. Most importantly: the insurance company name and the pet’s policy number.

2. Know how bill payments are handled. This is very important. Some policies will pay the vet in full or up to a certain point. But some will make you pay out of pocket and reimburse you later — not ideal for your pet sitter.

3. Leave your veterinary clinic’s name, location, and phone number along with your preferred vet’s name.

4. Leave information for the nearest Vet ER.
