The Awards

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

The five 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

Why nominate?

The Veterinary Awards are a great opportunity to recognise the hard work and dedication in your practice - whether it's the team or a particular individual, nominate them today and more importantly don't forget to tell us why they deserve to win! It could be their can-do, motivated attitude or the high level of service they provide to every single client; if you know anyone in your practice who goes above and beyond in their role, now is your chance to nominate!

We've made it simple to make more than one nomination. All nominations remain anonymous and we will send everyone who is nominated a nomination certificate to proudly display in their practice. Nominees can also download a digital nominee certificate to share on social media or your practice website.

Over the past 23 years, countless practices have been involved with the Petplan Veterinary Awards and seen first hand the benefits that engagement can bring. From staff morale boosts to PR coverage in the national media, the benefits of getting involved are diverse. Use this form now to make your own nomination(s) and put a well deserved smile on someone's face.
