The fourth quarter nominations were narrowed down to the six finalists by an internal review panel at Pets Best.

Voting on the six finalists is open to the public through Feb. 10, 2013. Voting polls can be found on the Pets Best Insurance website, at http://forms.petsbest.com/vote/and on the company’s Facebook page (www.Facebook.com/PetsBestInsurance).

The winner will receive $1,000 to treat animals in need, and the nominator will receive $200 as a thank you for sharing their story.

“As a veterinarian, I know how difficult it is to see animals that need treatment, but their owners can’t afford it,” said Dr. Jack Stephens, the president and founder of Pets Best Insurance, who also founded the nation’s pet insurance industry in the early 1980s. “It’s the fundamental reason I started pet insurance, and it’s the reason we launched the My Vet’s the Best contest. We want to recognize veterinarians who are going the extra mile and assist them financially in treating needy animals.”Read More…
