Burgess Excel Vet Awards announces the shortlist of finalists championing rabbit welfare in the UK

Awards celebrate the hard work of rabbit-friendly vets, vet nurses and veterinary practices championing rabbit welfare

The Burgess Excel Vet Awards, which celebrate the hard work of rabbit-friendly vets, vet nurses and veterinary practices championing rabbit welfare, has announced its shortlist of finalists for this year’s inaugural digital ceremony.

One winner from each of this year’s four categories – Rabbit Vet of the Year, Rabbit Nurse of the Year, Rabbit Practice of the Year and Best Rabbit Awareness Week Campaign – will be announced on the Burgess Pet Care Facebook page on Friday 13 November.

A judging panel of industry experts, veterinary professionals and rabbit specialists spent several days assessing a huge range of nominations and self-nominations from veterinary professionals and practices across the UK.

The judging panel comprised:

The final shortlist has been determined on a wide range of key elements, including expert understanding of the specific needs of rabbits, the specialist facilities their practice provides, their provision of rabbit-specific educational materials and additional work that’s been undertaken to support rabbit owners.

Dr Suzanne Moyes, MVB, MRCVS, Burgess Excel Awards judge and Veterinary Director at Burgess Pet Care said:

“We received hundreds of nominations from rabbit experts across the UK, so we couldn’t be happier with the response to our first Excel Vet Awards. It’s been fantastic to hear about so many veterinary professionals who are going above and beyond every day to take care of the UK’s rabbits, especially during these challenging times. The quality of the entries we’ve received has been nothing short of phenomenal, so arriving at a final shortlist was very challenging! Everyone who has made it this far should be really proud of themselves.”

The finalists in each category are as follows:

Rabbit Vet of the Year

Rabbit Vet Nurse of the Year

Best Rabbit Awareness Week Campaign of the Year

Rabbit Friendly Veterinary Practice of the Year

Originally planned to take place at the London Vet Show, this year’s ceremony will now take place digitally on the Burgess Pet Care Facebook Page due to the restrictions of COVID.

One winner from each of the four categories will receive a cash price of £500 and a trophy for recognition of their efforts.
