SASKATOON, Saskwatchewan, Nov. 25, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Central Animal Hospital in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan is the recipient of a 2012 Consumer Choice Award in Business Excellence. The Consumer Choice Awards use third party methodology to recognize local businesses for their excellence in customer relations and quality services. The veterinary care team at the Saskatoon pet hospital says that they are honored to receive this award and be recognized by the community for their pet service. Vets at the hospital provide wellness care, orthopedics, surgery and dental care.
Veterinarian Dr. Brian Gibbs announced that Central Animal Hospital is pleased to receive a 2012 Consumer Choice Award in Business Excellence. The award is based on independent surveys of local Saskatoon consumers.
"Being selected as a Consumer Choice Award winner is a tremendous honor," said veterinarian Dr. Gibbs. "It is a wonderful affirmation of our commitment to top-quality care. We are passionate about the well-being of each and every pet, and work hard to educate pet owners about at-home wellness care."
Vets at the animal hospital also thank the customer service team for making the reward possible, including the hospital administration staff.
"From the moment a pet owner enters our animal hospital, they experience the difference that our Saskatoon pet service team makes," said Dr. Gibbs. "Everyone is greeted with a friendly smile. Vets take their time during each appointment, working closely with pet owners to learn about a pet's lifestyle. This proactive approach to wellness care helps us provide better services for both pets and their owners."
The veterinary care team says that being selected for the Consumer Choice Award is especially meaningful since the award is based on community surveys. Consumers can nominate a local business. Top ranked companies are determined by survey results of local consumers.
According to the Consumer Choice Award website, the selection process is conducted by statistically accurate surveys and verified through third party methodology. Since 1987, they have used third party research firms to carefully perfect their methodology. Today, CCA partners with Leger Marketing, a leading independent research firm, to conduct consumer surveys. This scientific approach is designed to ensure that the best local businesses are recognized each year for their excellent services.
This is the Saskatoon veterinary hospital's first year to be nominated and receive the consumer choice award. "We are thrilled to win and committed to continuing this tradition of excellence," said Dr. Gibbs. "While the reward is a wonderful recognition, the true reward is what we experience every day: the difference that veterinary care can make in the lives of animals. From orthopedic care helping an animal walk comfortably again to pet vaccinations that save lives, being able to provide these needed pet services is the greatest reward of all."
