Nominations open for the 2012 - Petplan Equine Vet of the Year Award
Petplan Equine, the UK’s leading specialist equine insurer, is calling for nominations from horse owners across the country for this year’s Petplan Equine Vet of the Year Award.
The prestigious award, presented at the annual Animal Health Trust Equestrian Awards in November, recognises the dedication, knowledge and skill demonstrated every day by equine vets across the UK.
It also gives horse owners the perfect opportunity to publicly thank their vet for the care they provide to their horses and the support they provide to each owner. The person who submits the most compelling nomination will receive an annual subscription to Horse & Rider Magazine and a Petplan Equine branded numnah and Horseware Jacket.
The Petplan Equine Vet of the Year Award, now in its fifth year, reflects both Petplan Equine's commitment andsupport for the veterinary profession as well as the huge contribution local vets make to the equine community.
The current holder of the prestigious ‘Petplan Equine Vet of the Year’ title is Chris Pearce who grew up riding horses and has worked as a vet since 1990. Based in Dorset, in 2001 Chris became the first veterinary surgeon to qualify as an Equine Dental Technician, the area in which he now specialises.
On receiving the award, Chris commented: "Winning this award has helped to raise awareness of the importance of equine veterinary dentistry and early diagnosis of dental disease. I love what I do, I am extremely passionate about it and that’s what drives me. The really lovely thing about the award is that it’s voted for by the public and that’s what makes it really worthwhile.
Make a nomination today by visiting www.petplanequine.co.uk/vetaward – nominations close on 5th July 2012. The winner will be decided by an independent specialist panel and will be announced at the prestigious Animal Health Trust UK Equestrian Awards in London, on Thursday 1st of November 2012.
