Nomination Period April 13 - May 17, 2015
Vote for America's Favorite Veterinarian July 11 - September 1, 2015
Veterinarians do more than care for sick animals; they connect, empathize with and care about pet owners too! Your veterinarian has a responsibility to bridge the communication gap between us and our animals. They speak a language that we can only feel; they are the connection to our animals and provide a better, healthier quality of life. They are animal lovers just like us and they understand the precious place animals hold in our homes and hearts!
America’s Favorite Veterinarian provides a spotlight for those entrusted to preserve and protect the health and well-being of our animals. The contest celebrates the extraordinary relationships pet owners share with their veterinarians while recognizing the other pivotal roles veterinarians play in society as medical professionals in animal health research, food safety, public health, government services and academia.
America’s Favorite Veterinarian will receive:
• $500 cash prize
• A trip to the 2016 AVMA Convention in San Antonio (This includes the cost of conference registration, 2 nights hotel stay, and up to $500 in travel expenses)
• A year of dedicated space, highlighting them on the AVMF website
• A community celebration at their clinic to recognize their staff
The Nominating Winner of America’s Favorite Veterinarian is Awarded:
• An Animal Lover’s Gift Pack
