Australian pet owners are demonstrating their unwavering commitment to their furry companions, as revealed in a recent survey by Finder.com. The survey, conducted among 1,061 respondents, highlights that 94% of pet owners are willing to spare no expense to ensure the well-being of their pets, with some prepared to spend over $10,000.

On average, Australians are willing to invest $6,219 to safeguard their pets’ health, showcasing the deep bond between humans and animals. While 6% of respondents admit they wouldn’t spend anything on vet bills before considering euthanasia, the majority prioritise their pets’ welfare.

To assist pet owners in making informed financial decisions, Finder has announced the winners of its Pet Insurance Awards for 2024. Bow Wow Meow’s Ultimate Care policy stands out for its exceptional value, offering extensive coverage at an affordable price point.

Highly commended policies include petinsurance.com.au’s Platinum Cover and Coles Pet Insurance, providing comprehensive protection for furry companions.

Investing in pet insurance can provide peace of mind, ensuring that pet owners are prepared for unforeseen medical emergencies without compromising their financial stability.

With policies tailored to various needs and budgets, pet owners can find the right coverage for their beloved animals.

Despite generational differences in spending habits, with Gen Z leading the pack in willingness to invest in pet health, one thing remains clear: Australians’ love for their pets is unwavering, exemplifying the cherished bond between humans and animals.

To counter this issue, all new EVs in Australia will be outfitted with AVAS – an audible alert to pedestrians to indicate a EV is headed in their direction.

President Lai has repeatedly offered talks with China but has been rebuffed.

He says only Taiwan’s people can decide their future, and rejects Beijing’s sovereignty claims.
