American Hero Dog?

Behind every hero pet is a Hero Veterinarian or Hero Veterinary Nurse.
The annual American Humane Hero Veterinarian and Hero Veterinary Nurse Awards™, sponsored by Zoetis Petcare, honor the heroes who dedicate their lives to making a difference in animals’ lives through delivery of outstanding veterinary care.

One winning Hero Veterinarian and Hero Veterinary Nurse will be featured on the 2021 American Humane Hero Dog Awards® broadcast on Hallmark Channel this fall!

Bringing Care

Always there when our furry, winged, or scaled friends are sick, injured or need fast help from an expert who is never too tired to come to the clinic, the farm, or home to bring hope and healing.
