Harrison’s Pet Products is sponsoring the 2011 Clinical Case Report Contest that awards a licensed veterinarian submitting the best case report with a $1,000 prize in addition to a plaque.
Entries are required to submit photographic documentation and a brief case description of an animal in which one of the Harrisons’ Pet Products was used alone or in conjunction with other therapies to successfully resolve a disorder.
Cases will be judged on medical relevance, case completeness, photo quality before, during and after shots and overall presentation, according to the company.
Close-up digital images must be taken at a resolution high enough for a 4 in. x 3 in. (10 cm x 7.5 cm) image to be printed at 300 dpi (1200 x 900 pixels, or at least 1 megapixel). Images must be saved as individual .jpg, .tif or .psd files.
Harrisons’ Pet Products asks that veterinarians submit text as a Word file and describe the case and the images with the history, presumptive diagnosis and other therapies that were used in conjunction with the Harrisons’ Pet Product (including the generic name of drugs, dosages and treatment intervals).
Images and text should be emailed with the clinical case report as the subject line. Entrants must include their name and contact information. The winner will be notified by email on Dec. 16, 2011, and the $1,000 cash award will be presented at the North American Veterinary Conference (NAVC), although winners do not need to be present.
Harrisons’ Pet Products’ employees, consultants and their veterinary practice associates are not eligible to win. The winner will be selected by a panel of Harrisons’ Pet Products veterinary consultants.
The contest entry deadline is Dec. 1, 2011.
