Swindon practice is Voted Top Dog
Eastcott Veterinary Hospital is Voted Vet Practice of the Year at the Vet Oscars
Local Swindon vet practice, Eastcott Veterinary Hospital, has been awarded the prestigious title of 'Vet Practice of the Year 2012' at the Petplan Veterinary Awards - the Oscars of the veterinary profession.
From saving dogs from life threatening injuries to performing dental surgery on lions, no day is ever the same at Eastcott Veterinary Hospital. It is home to many talented veterinary surgeons and staff, and the surgery has recently grown from a small veterinary practice to veterinary hospital status.
Eastcott Veterinary Hospital said: "It is fantastic to be named Vet Practice of the Year, we were delighted to be in the final three so to win is amazing. This award really recognises the team effort, hard work and dedication that everyone at Eastcott puts into their job and we're thrilled to be acknowledged for this."
Isabella von Mesterhazy, Petplan's Head of Marketing, explains: "The Petplan Veterinary Awards, now in their 13th year, are about thanking the Veterinary profession for the outstanding level of care they provide to our animals. The awards recognise and celebrate nominated staff and practices throughout the country and Eastcott Veterinary Hospital is a fantastic example of the exceptional service a practice can provide to clients and their pets. We are delighted to name them Petplan's Vet Practice of the Year 2012."
She added: "A record number of over 3,000 nominations were received, demonstrating the importance Britain places not only on their animals, but also the dedicated veterinary professionals that care for them."
