Nominate in the 2014 Petplan Veterinary Awards!

Every year we embark on a nationwide expedition to find the UK's top veterinary professionals in the prestigious Veterinary Awards.

Often referred to as the 'Oscars' of the veterinary world, the awards set out to recognise and celebrate the hard work and dedication of staff and practices throughout the nation. We aim to show our appreciation to those who go above and beyond the call of duty, working hard to keep pets healthy, save lives, and provide care when pets are at their most vulnerable.

Do you have a practice or a particular staff member you think deserves recognition for their outstanding work or their devotion to the welfare of pets? Nominations for the 2014 awards are now open, so like the pets in our new video please vote and show your appreciation for those who have helped you and your beloved pet.

Categories this year are: Practice of the Year; Vet of the Year; Vet Nurse of the Year; Practice Manager of the Year; Practice Support Staff of the Year.

You can vote by going to petplan.co.uk/vetawards or on our Facebook page.

Wed 5th Feb 2014I have just received my local Paper this evening. I realise the closing date for nominations for vetawards 2014 was 31 January, but I am very much hoping you will include my nominations. The practice is Companion Care at Stirling. All the staff were exceptional, friendly and caring - and the two people whom I would like to nominate are vet, Catherine, and receptionist, Nicola. The care Catherine provided for my dog while he was ill was first class, and I knew that he was in good hands. Nothing was too much trouble for Nicola as she dealt with the admin. As well as feeling my dog was being well cared for, I, too, felt very well looked after and always felt welcome. And while the final outcome was the devastating loss of my dog, it could not have been better. Please, do consider these nominations if you can. I can elaborate if more information is required. Many thanks. C Phillipsp

Hello, I was hoping to nominate my vet for vet of the year. I was unaware of this award until I visited the vets earlier in the week. The vet I should like to nominate is Mike ( sorry I don't know his surname,) of City Vets, Ravenhill Road, Belfast. Mike is extremely, professional, efficient, caring, informative, I could go on and on listing his many qualities. As some one who worked in a similiar clinical set up as a musculoskeletal out patient physiotherapist for twenty years, I can appreciate good health care for " man" or " animal" and the care he provides is the best I have received in all my years of dog ownership ,(approx' 30 yrs.) I would be happy to expand on the information provided here, if so required.Many thanks,Deedee.
