Local Vet Michael Gilbertson and his practice Birchwood Veterinary Practice have been nominated for “Vet of the Year” and “Practice of the Year” in the Veterinary Awards 2019.

Often referred to as the ‘Oscars’ of the veterinary industry, the Veterinary Awards celebrate excellence within the veterinary profession and recognise those who inspire their clients and colleagues with their hard work and dedication.

The awards are a great opportunity to recognise the hard work and dedication in veterinary practices up and down the country.

Birchwood Veterinary Practice is based in between Stamford Bridge and Dunnington at Gate Helmsley.

Michael Gilbertson said: “I am absolutely delighted to have been nominated as ‘Vet of the Year’ in the Veterinary Awards 2019.

“It is an honour that our clients have taken the time to nominate me and that they value the care and support we provide to their pets so much as to put me forward for this award.

“I am even more proud of the nomination for Birchwood Vets as ‘Practice of the Year’.

“To see recognition for the hard work that the entire Birchwood team has put in to get us to where we are today is so rewarding.

“Thank you to all those who nominated us.”

The results of the veterinary awards will be announced on 4 April 2019.
