An independent Judging Panel, made up of esteemed veterinary experts and industry leaders, carefully chose the Finalists from over 4,800 nominations. Finalists were selected for their impact on veterinary medicine and their commitment to providing an exceptional level of care to pets. The panel also considered the more than 5,900 online votes of support from clients, colleagues and pet parents.

”When it comes to choosing a Veterinarian of the Year, our judging panel has a truly exceptional pool of candidates to consider,” says Petplan co-founder and co-CEO Natasha Ashton. “There are so many veterinarians who are deeply committed to pet health, but Dr. Todd stood out from the pack not just for his excellence in practicing medicine, but also for an unwavering compassion for and dedication to Dunedin pets. I’m delighted to welcome him to the Finalists’ fold!”
