In the summer of 2006, staff at HVH initiated a pet photo contest to help celebrate our patients. We wanted to take a little peek into their lives and see all the goofy, cute, and adorable things they do, apart from being wonderful patients. From its humble beginnings, the annual pet photo contest has morphed into a big part of our yearly calendar. The essence still remains the same, we want to be able to see your pets’ real personality showing and enriching the contest.


Hastings Veterinary Hospitals’ Photo contest is back! From July 1st until August 31st 2018 you can enter your pet’s most hilarious and adorable photos for a chance to win a prize!
