S&A won 2024 Vettys Best of Show

ORLANDO, Fla., Jan. 11, 2024 — S&A received one of the highest accolades at this year’s VETTY Awards when the team was granted the Large Animal grand prize for the Synchrony Equine Lifetime of Care lookbook. With a total of 20 VETTY Awards received during the 2024 VMX veterinary conference, S&A’s work has again been recognized as being among the best in the animal healthcare industry. 

The VETTY Awards, created by the North American Veterinary Community (NAVC) and recognized during VMX every year, are designed to highlight marketing excellence within the realm of animal health. Of the many veterinary industry nonprofit and for-profit organizations and agencies invited to participate in the awards, only one receives the coveted grand prize in the Large Animal category. 

 “We are so humbled to receive recognition for our team’s hard work,” said Brenda Andresen, S&A co-CEO. “What makes this even better is being able to do this for our clients and partners, because it’s their trust and collaboration that allow us to take their work to the highest levels.”  

S&A also secured 19 additional awards, including eight gold, for entries in categories ranging from trade to consumer, large animal to small animal, digital to print, and more. 

Based in Overland Park, Kansas, S&A has demonstrated a steadfast commitment to providing animal health clients and partners with innovative marketing solutions every day since its inception nearly 45 years ago. It is one of oldest privately owned agencies to specialize in animal healthcare, and the team’s approach continues to prove exceptional—the work has received an increased number of VETTY Awards every year for the past five years.  

“We are proud to recognize the impact that S&A has made in the animal healthcare industry,” said NAVC CEO Gene O’Neill. “VETTY Award winners like S&A 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.”
