Petplan Equine has openednominations for the Equine Vet of the Year Award 2009 – theperfect opportunity to honour the vets that go “above and beyond” with their care of horses and their owners.

The Petplan Equine Equestrian Vet of the Year Award reflects both Petplan Equine’s involvement with the veterinary profession and the huge contribution made by local vets to the equine community. You can nominate online by clicking here.

Mark Lingard, Simon Wheeler, Andrew Dobson and Mark Murrell

Andrew Dobson from Great Wakering, Essex, is the current 2008 Equine Vet of the Year. He was nominated by numerous grateful clients, whose glowing testimonials impressed the judges enough to give him the edge over his closest rivals for this coveted title.

The 37-year-old qualified in 1999 and has run his own practice for the last four-and-a-half years. His involvement with horses evolved from a desire to work with large animals and the outdoor life it would bring.

Speaking of his win, Mr Dobson said: “I was absolutely stunned. I’m so honoured and amazed to have received the Petplan Equine Vet of the Year award. I really enjoy what I do and would like thank all my clients, Petplan Equine and The Animal Health Trust for their support.”

If you feel you know a vet that displays equine clinical excellence and fantastic customer care you can nominate online by visiting the Petplan Equine website.

Nominations close October 3. An independent panel will judge the nominations and the winning vet will be announced at the prestigious Animal Health Trust UK Equestrian Awards in London, in November 2009.
