Vets4Pets Returns To The VET Festival 2022
Vets4Pets, part of the Pets at Home Group, returned to The VET Festival this weekend to meet and network with veterinary professionals across the UK.
The festival took place at Loseley Park in Guildford, Surrey following a two-year hiatus and welcomed more than 2,000 people to the event. Its programme focused heavily on veterinary wellbeing and development, and Vets4Pets joined as one of this year’s exhibitors.
Vets4Pets hosted a garden party-themed stand where delegates could relax, network and enjoy some light refreshments. The team also encouraged some healthy competition with a game of ‘Splat the Flea’ – a unique take on ‘Splat the Rat’ which is traditionally played at summer fêtes – and amassed more than 300 entries into their prize draw for a luxury hamper.
Commenting on the event, Claire Cunningham, Partnership Recruitment Manager at Vets4Pets, said: “It was fantastic to see the return of Vet Fest this weekend. The last two years have been tough for everyone, so having the time to step back, relax and socialise was really needed – we’ve had a brilliant couple of days.
“It was also a great opportunity to meet up with our colleagues, and to meet new people to let them know what steps we’re taking to help protect the health and wellbeing of our veterinary teams, especially as increasing support and recognition for everyone within the industry is so high on the agenda. We’ll certainly be back next year!”
Vets4Pets’ attendance at The VET Festival follows the launch of a new national campaign that gives thanks to the vets, veterinary nurses and support teams that continue to work tirelessly to care for the nation’s pets. It forms part of the firm’s commitment to increase support and recognition for everyone within the profession, following its inaugural Project Listen report.
