A West Midlands communications agency is celebrating winning a national award at a glittering ceremony recognising the best marketing campaigns in the veterinary world.

R&Co Communications picked up the PR Campaign of the Year, sponsored by Vet Times and VN Times, at the Veterinary Marketing Association Awards 2024.

R&Co, which has offices in Leamington Spa and Birmingham, collected the award from comedian Tom Allen at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London, in recognition of its work with Anderson Moores Veterinary Specialists (AMVS).

The award-winning campaign focused on the symptoms and dangers of cutaneous and renal glomerular vasculopathy (CRGV) in dogs – a condition also known as Alabama Rot.

R&Co focused on raising awareness of the symptoms of CRGV among dog owners nationwide using a strategic approach, positioning AMVS as the UK’s foremost authority on the condition. 

It also secured industry PR opportunities with internal medicine specialists David Walker and Josh Walker, providing them with a platform to demonstrate their expertise on CRGV.​

Meanwhile, a quarter of all sessions on AMVS’ dedicated Alabama Rot website were driven by referral traffic from media coverage, with Google Analytics data showing a total of 12,705 referral sessions.

R&Co managing director Peter Robinson said: “Our team are experts in veterinary PR and consistently deliver excellent results for our clients in the sector. This award is further proof of that, and we were delighted to win ahead of some very tough competition and large agencies.

“We have worked in the veterinary industry for nearly two decades and applied our expertise to deliver a truly multi-platform PR campaign which has been recognised at a national level.”

R&Co represents AMVS as part of its work for Mars Petcare-owned Linnaeus, one of the UK’s biggest veterinary groups.

Previously, R&Co won Gold for the best healthcare campaign at the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) Midlands PRide awards in 2022, also for its work on Alabama Rot with AMVS.
