Petplan, the UK’s favourite pet insurance provider, is delighted to announce that nominations for the prestigious Petplan Veterinary Awards are now open.

Returning for their 18th year, the Awards recognise members of the veterinary profession who have gone above and beyond in their daily roles. With almost half of households in Britain owning at least one pet[1], Petplan is encouraging pet owners across the UK to recognise the hard work of the veterinary staff who have shown admirable dedication in their roles caring for the wellbeing of the UK’s pets.

Isabella Von Mesterhazy, Head of Marketing at Petplan comments: “Petplan values its strong relationship with veterinary practices across the UK and places much importance on the essential role played by industry professionals in looking after the nation’s pets. We receive daily feedback from our customers praising the exceptional care veterinary staff have provided for their beloved pets and the Veterinary Awards are an opportunity for both owners and Petplan to formally recognise these outstanding individuals.”
