Nominations open for the 2016 Petplan Veterinary Awards

Petplan, the UK’s largest pet insurance provider and its specialist equine sister-brand Petplan Equine, are delighted to announce that nominations will open for the much anticipated Petplan Veterinary Awards on 1st September 2015.

Returning for a 16th year, the Veterinary Awards acknowledge the importance of animals in the lives of British people, recognising members of the veterinary community who have gone ‘above and beyond’ in their daily roles. Petplan is inviting horse and pet owners across the UK to nominate members of their veterinary practices who they feel are deserving of one of these coveted awards.

Petplan Equine’s Head of Marketing, Isabella von Mesterhazy commented: "At Petplan Equine, our customers are constantly telling us remarkable stories about veterinary staff who have provided vital support to their horses, often going to extraordinary lengths to do so. The Veterinary Awards provide an opportunity for owners to say thank you to their practice and the members of the team”.

The Petplan Veterinary Awards capture the public’s imagination and last year Petplan received a staggering 15,101 nominations for practice managers, nurses, vets, support staff or veterinary practices.
