To commemorate the important relationship between veterinarian, owner and horse, the American Association of Equine Practitioners invites horse owners to participate in the AAEP’s My Vet Rocks Contest by sharing how their veterinarian provides exceptional care of the horse.

Beginning June 1, horse owners may submit an online entry of 500 words or less describing how their AAEP-member veterinarian delivers exemplary care. Nominations can be made online at The last day to submit an entry is Aug. 31.

Three veterinarians will be selected for recognition each month —June through August— in a Win-Place-Show order. Monthly honorees and their nominators will be acknowledged across AAEP’s traditional and new media platforms and receive a prize package.

The My Vet Rocks Contest is sponsored by American Regent Animal Health, manufacturer of Adequan® i.m. (polysulfated glycosaminoglycan).

A grand prize winner will be selected from among the three monthly “Win” honorees and recognized Dec. 6 during the AAEP’s 66th Annual Convention in Las Vegas, Nev.
