Hill’s Pet Nutrition of Topeka, Kan., posthumously honored Mark L. Morris Jr., DVM, Ph.D., Dipl. ACVN, with the 2008 Mark L. Morris Sr. Lifetime Achievement Award.

“Dr. Morris truly established his own legacy by taking his father’s vision and turning it into reality,” said Mary Beth Leininger, DVM, director of professional affairs for Hill’s. “He has made a difference in millions of animals’ lives and changed the way the entire veterinary profession thinks about nutrition.”

At the time of his death in January 2007, Morris had developed more than 130 nutritional products. In recognition of his lifetime of service, Hill’s will donate $20,000 to the Morris Animal Foundation in his name.

The award was established in memory of Morris’ father and is presented annually at the North American Veterinary Conference.
