About

The Burgess Excel Vet Awards have been created to celebrate the hard work and achievements of veterinary professionals who work tirelessly to improve rabbit health and welfare.

Despite their popularity research consistently highlights that there is often low awareness regarding the specific needs of rabbits. The Burgess Excel Vet Awards have been created by Burgess Pet Care to recognise the efforts of those who go above and beyond to raise awareness around the welfare needs of these amazing animals. 

Who can enter?

The Awards have three categories. Rabbit Vet of the Year, open to all practising UK veterinary surgeons, Rabbit Nurse of the Year, open to all practising veterinary nurses in the UK and Rabbit Veterinary Practice of the Year open to all practices on the RWAF rabbit friendly list.

You can register at the bottom of this page to be kept up to date on all aspects of the Burgess Excel Vet Awards.

How do I nominate?

Once the award categories go live at the beginning of March, you will be able to self-nominate or nominate somebody you know. You don’t have to be a veterinary professional to nominate a veterinary professional; it may be that you’re one of their clients. In short, if you’re a rabbit owner and want to highlight the hard work of your local vet, we want to hear from you, too!

The judging process will run for three months. Once nominations have closed, our panel of judges will meet to determine a shortlist of finalists for each category. Our winners will be announced at the London Vet Show 2020.
