Simon Wheeler, head of marketing for Petplan, stresses the importance of getting involved: ‘Veterinary professionals up and down the country show great commitment and dedication to our pets on a daily basis, and the Petplan Veterinary Awards will recognise this. What better way of expressing your gratitude and thanks, than by nominating them for an award.

‘The awards are now in their tenth year and we are never disappointed in our quest to discover veterinary staff that regularly go far beyond the call of duty. Each year we are astonished by the public’s response, with tales ranging from midnight rescues to simple acts of kindness and support,’ added Mr Wheeler.

Voting will give your nominee the chance to win a prestigious Petplan Veterinary Awards trophy and a fabulous prize. Also, every nominator has the chance to win £250 worth of Love2Shop vouchers.

In April 2009 all finalists will be invited to a glittering black-tie ceremony, hailed as the ‘Veterinary Oscars’, where the winners will be announced.
