The New Zealand Veterinary Association has recently awarded VetPlus with their ‘Business Excellence Award’ which recognises the practice as exemplifying excellence in leadership in the veterinary industry.

Nominated anonymously by one of their team members, the business owners were unaware they were being considered for the profession’s prestigious award.

“We were absolutely thrilled” says Business Manager, Jenni Hill.  “The focus of the award is largely around leadership and how this looks and feels to people in our team.  We truly believe that our people are our greatest asset, they make the VetPlus experience what it is, so we take this aspect of our business super seriously.  To have one of our team nominate us is the best feeling”.  Unfortunately the NZVA awards ceremony was cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions.  “We’ll just have to have a little party amongst ourselves!” said Hill.

VetPlus have clinics in Taupo, Reporoa and Rotorua and are owned by local people who work in the business. Hill sees this as key to the business’s success.  “We all live and play in the communities where we do business.  We rub shoulders with our clients during the working day, through our kids schools, our community and sporting groups.  We’re all part of the same collective.  Many of our client relationships have developed into friendships.”
