Rau Animal Hospital could get some national recognition. 

The Glenside veterinarian was recently named one of three finalists in the Petplan Pet Insurance’s 2014 “Veterinary Practice of the Year” award.

The award drew more than 3,100 nominations from across the country.

“With our Practice of the Year award, which is new for 2014, we sought to honor a practice that not only provides a consistently exceptional level of care to our four-legged family members, but is on the cutting edge both in how they practice and how they communicate with their clients, helping pet parents learn to become better partners in the health of their four-legged family members,” Petplan founder and co-CEO Natasha Ashton said in a press release.

The finalists will be evaluated by a panel, which comprises pet health professionals and veterinarians. The winners will be announced at the 86th annual Western Veterinary Conference in Las Vegas; four team members from Rau Animal Hospital will make the trip.

But before the panel evaluates each practice, people may vote for their favorite vet online at GoPetplan/raiseapaw. Voting runs through Sunday, Dec. 15 at 11:59 p.m.

This recognition is richly deserved. Pet owners come from all over to receive the competent and caring service Rau provides from the veterinarians as well as the entire staff. In addition the physical plant and grounds are very attractive. Rau is a great asset to the Glenside community.
