My Vet’s the Best National Contest
In 2010, Pets Best, a pet insurance agency for dogs and cats, 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.

Please note: if you nominate your veterinarian and they do not become a finalist for voting, you will need to nominate them again to be considered for the next round of finalists/voting.
How Many Veterinarians Win? Three times per year, a Pets Best committee of veterinarians and technicians select 8 finalists from hundreds of nominees. The public then votes on the Pets Best Facebook page to choose the winner.
In December, a panel of veterinary peers will choose one grand prize winner from the pool of all 24 finalists in 2016.
