Pet Plan Veterinary Awards 2016

What are the Veterinary Awards?

Now in its 17th year, the Veterinary Awards are often referred to as the 'Oscars' of the veterinary industry. This prestigious event celebrates success within the veterinary profession and recognises those who inspire their clients and colleagues with their hard work and dedication.


The Awards

Anyone can nominate a number of outstanding veterinary professionals or practices, from pet owners, veterinary staff to friends and family.

The six nomination categories 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
  • Rising Star of the Year

How are the Veterinary Awards judged?

The Veterinary Awards are judged by an independent panel made up of leading people from the

veterinary industry including presidents of the veterinary and nursing associations and

previous winners of the awards.

From the thousands of nominations the judges have a very difficult task to narrow down the field of

nominations to just three finalists in each category. The finalists are all invited to attend the Veterinary

Awards ceremony, where the winners are announced.

How the finalists and winners are selected

Each year Pet Plan receives thousands of nominations from pet owners and veterinary staff from across the UK

who felt compelled to tell us why their practice or someone in the team deserves to win.

The judges specifically look for clear examples of:

  • Exceptional levels of care
  • Outstanding expertise
  • Those who have gone above and beyond the normal call of duty
  • Outstanding professionalism
  • Great interpersonal skills with both colleagues and pet owners

Please vote for us!

If you think Abbey House or someone in the practice team deserves to win simply complete the

nomination form attached and say why!

Nominations close on the 31st January 2016.


Hand in your completed form to any of the Abbey House branches or post to Pet Plan, The Granary,

8 Star Street, WARE, SG12 7AA.

Alternatively complete the nomination on line.
