Vote for your favourite celebrity vet

It’s the awards season! First there were the BAFTAS, then the Brits and then the Oscars. Now it’s time to honour the Vets with Petplan’s Special Recognition Award.

Petplan is the world’s leading provider of pet health insurance and hosts the annual Veterinary Awards each April. This year the Awards include a new category designed to recognise the invaluable work of popular celebrity vets who highlight and champion animal health and welfare issues in the media with regular TV appearances, documentaries and charity work. The Special Recognition Award is the only award that invites you and fellow animal lovers to vote for the vet you feel is the most deserving and has gone that extra mile.

The nominees are:

• Up and coming TV vet and philanthropist Marc Abraham
• Scandinavian favourite Trude Mostue
• The dishy and adventurous Steve Leonard
• The foodie Joe Inglis
• Thinking man’s vet Emma Milne
• The veterinary legend Bruce Fogle (father of Ben Fogle)

Petplan veterinary spokesperson Scott Miller is no stranger to the celebrity veterinary world, and will be presenting the winning vet with their award on the night. Scott Miller said: “They say you should never work with children or animals, but this bunch of household names have been doing it well for many years. It is great that Petplan is acknowledging their work with the Special Recognition Award.”
