Petplan pet health insurance is accepting nominations in a contest designed to identify the year’s top veterinarian, veterinary technician, practice manager and veterinary practice.
Pet owners, veterinarians and veterinary staff members may nominate a worthy individual or practice at GoPetplan.com/VetAwards. The deadline is Nov. 15.
Three finalists in each category will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to the Western Veterinary Conference in Las Vegas for the announcement of the winners. The presentation will take place during a dinner Feb. 16 at the Four Seasons Hotel.
The Veterinary Awards honor professionals who provide an exceptional level of pet health care and exemplary customer service, Petplan reported.
Veterinary Practice of the Year, a new category, recognizes that "keeping our pets healthy and happy is often a true team effort,” said Natasha Ashton, Petplan’s co-founder and co-CEO.
"With this award, we hope to shine a well-deserved spotlight on the efforts of the entire clinic, from veterinarians and technicians to practice managers and support staff,” Ashton said.
Anyone who submits a nomination will be entered into a weekly drawing for a $100 PetSmart gift card.
