In 2010, Pets Best Insurance became the nation’s first pet insurance company to develop a contest aimed at recognizing the country’s best veterinarians. Each year, thousands of veterinarians receive nominations from grateful pet owners. Their stories include heartwarming and sometimes harrowing tales of why they believe their vet is the best.
How to participate in My Vet’s the Best:
1. Nominate your veterinarian
2. Watch for finalists to be announced and vote for your favorite
Nominating Your Veterinarian
Our online form makes it easy for you to nominate your vet. Your story doesn’t have to be long, but it should include details about how your vet helped your pet specifically, as well as information about any pet-related charity your veterinarian may support. For more information, read the top 3 tips for a strong nomination.
How Many Veterinarians Win?
Three times per year, a Pets Best Insurance committee of veterinarians and technicians selects 6 finalists. The public then votes to choose the winner.
In addition, at the end of the year, a panel of veterinary peers will choose a Grand Prize Winner from the pool of finalists. This means we will have a total of 3 or 4 winners, depending on whether the Grand Prize Winner was also a quarterly winner.
Prizes and Awards
Certificate of recognition: All nominated veterinarians
$1,000 to treat needy pets: Each winning veterinarian and the Grand Prize Winner
$200 prize: Each nominator with a winning story
Trip for 2 to Western Veterinary Conference: Grand Prize Winner
Past My Vet’s the Best winners have used the money to nurse an abused dog back to health, treat and vaccinate pets in impoverished areas, and treat a stray kitten with a ruptured eye.
