The following veterinarians have been named as the six finalists in the My Vets the Best Contest after being nominated by their respective clients for providing exceptional veterinary care and for going above and beyond for pets and their owners:

Dr. Holly Brophy, Bel Aire Pet Clinic, Mt. Zion, Illinois

Dr. Richard Chu, Pets Unlimited, San Francisco, California

Dr. Kathy Joseph, Vandalia Animal Clinic, Vandalia, Ohio

Dr. Tony Poutous, Pet Care Veterinary Hospital, Virginia Beach, Virginia

Dr. Luminita Sarbu, Veterinary Oncology Center, Renton, Washington

In the contest, pet owners nominate their veterinarians and explain why they think they are the best through a form on the Pets Best Insurance Facebook page. Each quarter, an internal panel at the pet insurance agency selects six finalists from all received nominations. The six veterinarians and their client-submitted stories are then posted to Facebook for one month of public voting. Stories are currently available on the Pets Best Insurance Facebook page at and online voting is now open.

Each quarter, the pet owner with the story receiving the most votes will receive a $ 200 cash prize and the winning veterinarian will receive $ 1,000 for the treatment of animals in need, or for those pet owners who cannot afford the care their pet needs. A single grand prize winner will also be selected by Pets Best Insurance at the end of the year. The annual grand prize winner receives airfare, hotel accommodations and registration for two to the 2013 Western Veterinary Conferencea leading continuing education conference for veterinarians. The 2012 My Vets the Best contest will recognize a total of four winning pet owners and their veterinarians throughout the year.

The first quarter winner of the 2012 My Vets the Best contest, Dr. Tom Greek, of Greek and Associates Veterinary Hospital in Yorba Linda, CA, was able to provide care to a female tortoise named Roxy with the $ 1,000 he was awarded. Dr. Greek was nominated by client Liddy Kammer and won the online vote.

Roxy was diagnosed with a three-inch urinary bladder stone which required surgery involving cutting a window through the bottom of her shell to access the bladder. Unfortunately, Roxys owner wasnt able to provide the surgery to Roxy and ended up relinquishing the tortoise to Greek and Associates Veterinary Hospital.

Through the prize money from Pets Best Insurance, GAVH performed the life-saving cystotomy to remove the bladder stone, Dr. Greek, said. [Roxy] shows that even a tortoise can go through tough times and with a little help from others, can persevere.
