Petplan Equine, the specialist equine insurer, is calling for nominations for this year’s Petplan Equine Vet of the Year Award.

The prestigious award now in its fifth year, presented at the annual Animal Health Trust Equestrian Awards in November, recognises the dedication, knowledge and skill demonstrated by equine vets across the UK.

The current holder of the title is Chris Pearce (pictured receiving his award last year) who has worked as a vet since 1990. Based in Dorset, in 2001 Chris became the first veterinary surgeon to qualify as an Equine Dental Technician, an area in which he now specialises.

"The really lovely thing about the award is that it’s voted for by the public and that’s what makes it really worthwhile," said Chris.

The winner will be decided by an independent specialist panel and will be announced at the prestigious Animal Health Trust UK Equestrian Awards in London, on Thursday 1 November.
