  • Petsecure Celebrates 25th Anniversary with Donation to Nova Scotia SPCA

    by Petsecure Pet Heath Insurance | Jul 08, 2014

    We're recognizing 25 years as Canada's largest and most trusted pet health insurance company by making a big donation to one of our longtime partners! Here are the details from a news release:

    Winnipeg, Manitoba – July 8, 2014: As part of Petsecure’s 25th anniversary celebrations, the company will make a $15,000 donation to one of their trusted partners – the Nova Scotia Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) – at the 2014 Canadian Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA) convention in St. John’s, Newfoundland on Wednesday, July 9.

    Over the past 25 years, Petsecure has grown to become Canada’s largest and most trusted pet health insurance provider. It’s a position the company could not have achieved without its longstanding partnerships with veterinarians, breeders and shelters.

    “Petsecure’s donation is incredibly beneficial in helping with our events and initiatives to save thousands of animals every year,” said Courtney Zylstra, Fund Development Officer at the Nova Scotia SPCA. “Through our events, we’re able to raise funds for the shelter to continue providing necessary medical care for the animals.”

    The Nova Scotia SPCA works closely with Petsecure and offers a free trial of pet health insurance to its clients for any newly-adopted pets. Petsecure has similar partnerships with shelters and SPCAs across Canada.

    “We’re proud to partner with shelters like the Nova Scotia SPCA that see the value in encouraging pet owners to purchase pet health insurance to the benefit of their animals,” said Rod Cunniam, Petsecure’s interim President and COO. “The health and well-being of Canadian pets is always a priority, so it’s our privilege to provide this donation. We’re happy we can help the SPCA continue to provide excellent care for Nova Scotia’s dogs and cats.”

    The CVMA convention, at which the donation will be presented, is Canada’s only national multi-species convention. Taking place July 9-12, Canadian and international speakers from the veterinary and human health professions will present on a wide range of topics alongside 65 exhibitors.

    About the Nova Scotia SPCA:

    The mission of the Nova Scotia SPCA is to prevent abuse, neglect and cruelty to animals, and provide for province-wide leadership on matters that promote and improve the welfare of all animals through animal protection; care and rehabilitation; humane education; advocacy and engagement and collaboration with stakeholders.

  • Meet Petsecure's new Veterinary Advisory Board

    by Petsecure Pet Heath Insurance | Jun 25, 2014

     Petsecure Veterinary Advisory Board (from left): Board Chair Dr. Berney Pukay, Petsecure Interim President & COO Rod Cunniam, Dr. Jean Gauvin, Dr. Susann Hosie, Dr. Lynn Webster, Dr. Lesley Steele.

    Petsecure has announced a new Veterinary Advisory Board! Here are the details from a news release:

    Winnipeg, Manitoba -- Petsecure pet health insurance, Canada’s oldest and largest pet health insurance company that has cared for almost 1,000,000 pets, announces that Dr. Bernhard Pukay has been appointed Chairman of the Petsecure Veterinary Advisory Board (PVAB).

    The members of the Petsecure Veterinary Advisory Board are committed to expanding the pet health insurance industry’s reach and representation. Board members will be working with industry shareholders to explore ways to make pet health insurance more accessible to all pet owners. Their goal is to provide a good quality of life for all pets, provide pet owners with the means to afford veterinary treatment for their pets, and provide veterinarians with the means and capabilities to care for all pets with the most effective treatments available.

    "I am proud to welcome Dr. Bernhard Pukay to chair the Petsecure Veterinary Advisory Board," said Rod Cunniam, Interim President and COO of Petsecure pet health insurance, which is underwritten by Western Financial Insurance Company. "Dr. Pukay brings with him an extensive knowledge and understanding of both veterinary medicine and the veterinary community to the Board.”

    Dr. Pukay joins the PVAB after more than 40 years of being active within the veterinary profession. During this time, he was senior partner and CEO of the Alta Vista Animal Hospital, one of Canada’s largest animal hospitals. He has also received awards, hosted a television and radio show, and continues to write on pet care for publications.

    “I am privileged to take on the role of Chair with the Petsecure Veterinary Advisory Board,” said Dr. Pukay. “Our ultimate goal is to make a difference in pet health care by finding ways to ensure that the best veterinary care is accessible and affordable to everyone.”

    Dr. Pukay succeeds Dr. Lynn Webster, who led the Board as Chairman and has been actively involved in veterinarian medicine for 47 years. Now retired, he will serve as a board member on the PVAB, representing the Manitoba/Saskatchewan region.

    The Petsecure Veterinary Advisory Board will consist of three additional Board members. These individuals will provide a voice to all regions across Canada:

    Dr. Jean Gauvin has over 20 years of experience in veterinary medicine. With a history in private practice, teaching in universities and colleges, and hosting a popular Quebec TV show, he will be a representative of the Quebec region.

    Dr. Lesley Steele is the owner and CEO of the Eastern Passage Village Veterinary Hospital, and founder of the Atlantic Vet Alliance (AVA) and its affiliate Central and Western Vet Alliance. Dr. Steele will represent Atlantic Canada on the Board.

    Dr. Suann Hosie founded the Vancouver Animal Emergency Clinic (VAEC). With over 40 years of experience in the veterinary industry, Dr. Hosie will represent the Alberta/British Columbia region on the Board.

    The Advisory Board advises on the risks, strategies, plans and performance of Petsecure and provides counsel to the Interim President and COO. Alongside Regional Managers and Territory Managers representing all areas of Canada, this will extend Petsecure’s reach in helping provide what’s best for pets.
