As pet parents, we understand that keeping our pets healthy and happy is often a true team effort, which is why we’re excited to announce the addition of a new award, for Practice of the Year.

As many pet parents know, the right veterinarian – and their talented team – is not only your pet’s best friend, but an extension of your four-legged family. Grateful pet parents have the perfect “op-paw-tunity” to return the favor this fall by nominating their favorite vet for the Petplan pet insurance 2014 Veterinary Awards.

The Veterinary Awards seek to honor veterinary professionals who go above and beyond to provide pets with an exceptional level of health care and their parents with exemplary customer service. In short, they celebrate the best in the business of healing furry friends.

Petplan is now accepting nominations in the following categories:

  •     Veterinarian of the Year
  •     Veterinary Technician of the Year
  •     Practice Manager of the Year
  •     Veterinary Practice of the Year

“We are also delighted to be returning to the Western Veterinary Conference (WVC), one of the country’s premier veterinary events, for our annual Awards Dinner, where we’ll celebrate the outstanding dedication, passion and efforts of America’s veterinary professionals,” Ashton continues.

Three finalists in each award category will be invited to join Petplan at WVC in February to celebrate their nomination – and hear the winners announced! – at an exclusive Awards Dinner at the Four Seasons-Las Vegas.
