Sharing a recognition that the transition from student to qualified vet can be challenging, Zoetis and BVA are working on several projects that help to showcase the contribution of young vets to the veterinary profession.

BVA Young Vet of the Year Award

The ground-breaking BVA Young Vet of the Year Award, supported by Zoetis celebrates the valuable contribution that young vets make both in practice and non-clinical roles every day.

Gaining your qualifications, delivering in your role as a young vet takes time and commitment. By supporting the BVA Young Vet of the Year award, we aim to give young vets encouragement to continue to do the right thing and make the difference.”

Why we’re doing this

With the profession facing a retention crisis, Zoetis wants to help support young vets who often require more support during their first years in practice. It's also one of BVA's top priorities to support and develop our young vets as future leaders of the profession.

We believe that with the right level of support we can make big improvements to young vet wellbeing and job satisfaction.

To do this the whole profession must work together. This partnership is an important step on that journey.
