The insurance provider is encouraging vet staff and pet owners to recognise the hard work of those who have shown dedication in their work caring for the UK’s pets.

Essential role

Head of sales and partnerships at Petplan James Barnes said: “Petplan really values its strong relationship with veterinary practices across the UK and places great importance on the essential role played by 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 awards are a fantastic opportunity for both owners and Petplan to recognise the hard work and dedication, and say thank you.”
