Shawn Hook, DVM, owner of Arbor Ridge Clinic in Madison, Wis., was selected in the January drawing of Summit VetPharm’s “The Great Vectra 3D $125,000 Giveaway” promotion.
Dr. Hook’s prize will be $25,000 in medical equipment for his clinic, which he acquired in March 2007.
“We are a progressive small practice and we would like to make our medical equipment as cutting edge as possible,” Hook said. “It is not easy starting your own clinic, so winning this new medical equipment could not have come at a more opportune time and will help us build a better practice.”
Hook graduated from the University of Wisconsin, Madison , School of Veterinary Medicine in 1999 and has a special interest in exotic animal medicine and surgery.
Summit will also award $25,000 prizes to the winners of the contest’s February and March drawings, as well as $50,000 to the grand prize winner. All four winners will be flown to New York in May for an all-expense-paid awards ceremony weekend.
The contest is part of Summit’s incentive program for its Vectra 3D, a borad-spectrum topical designed to protect dogs against fleas, ticks and mosquitoes.
Veterinarians receive one entry into the contest, which runs through March 31, for every $1,000 worth of product ordered.
