Newtown Square, Pa.-based Petplan is now accepting nominations for its 2018 Veterinary Excellence Awards—accolades that recognize excellence in the field of pet health and recognize outstanding veterinary professionals from across North America.
Petplan veterinary professionals (and pet owners) are encouraged to visit the PetPlan website and share the stories of those who they believe truly demonstrate excellence in their field.
Nominations are now open for the following categories:
- Veterinary Practice of the Year
- Veterinarian of the Year
- Veterinary Technician of the Year
- Practice Manager of the Year
- Receptionist of the Year
Organizers will review all nominations to select six semifinalists in each category. Semifinalists will then undergo a thorough application process; finalists (three per category) will be selected by an independent judging panel of veterinary professionals and announced in October. Last year’s Veterinary Excellence Awards judges included Julie Legred, CVT, executive director of the National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America (NAVTA); Gail Gibson, VMD, 2016-2017 president of the North American Veterinary Community (NAVC); and Michael Cavanaugh, DVM, DABVP, CEO of the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA).
Finalists will receive an invitation to attend the Petplan Veterinary Excellence Awards black-tie gala in Orlando, Fla., where winners will be named next February. Award winners will receive a package that includes cash, prizes and a donation to a pet-related charity of their choice.
