RALEIGH, N.C. (Jan. 18, 2024) —  French/​West/​Vaughan (FWV), one of the nation’s largest independently held PR, advertising and digital media agencies, today announced two of its marketing campaigns were recognized among the best in the animal health care industry at the 2023 VETTY Awards® program.

Dedicated to recognizing marketing excellence in the animal health care industry, the VETTY Awards® invite veterinary industry nonprofit and for-profit organizations and agencies throughout the globe to submit their projects for consideration during the annual awards program.

This year’s participation reached record numbers, with entries focused on campaigns that promote animal health industry contributions designed to keep furry, feathered and scaly friends healthy and happy. Each entry was reviewed by a judging panel comprised of leaders in the creative marketing field.

“We are proud of the amazing work that those in marketing and advertising are accomplishing in the animal health care industry. This year’s entries proved beyond excellent, showcasing many of the advancements in animal medicine, a deeper understanding of the animal health audience, developments in technology and memorable creative campaigns,” said North American Veterinary Community (NAVC) CEO Gene O’Neill. “VETTY Awards® winners like FWV are truly the ‘best of show’ and capture the talent and creativity across our industry in supporting the veterinary profession and promoting products and services that improve the lives of animals.”
