Dr. Stephen Ettinger is the recipient of the 2011 Mark L. Morris, Sr., Lifetime Achievement Award.

Stephen Ettinger, DVM, Dipl. ACVIM, chief medical officer at Pet DRx, received the 2011 Mark L. Morris, Sr., Lifetime Achievement Award for his work in small animal veterinary internal medicine, small animal cardiology, teaching and hospital management.

The award was presented by Hill’s Pet Nutrition Inc. on Jan. 15 during the opening ceremony of the North American Veterinary Conference being held in Orlando, Fla.

“Each year, our nominees have experience in a wide range of fields in the veterinary profession,” said Janet Donlin, DVM, chief veterinary officer at Hill’s. “Dr. Ettinger’s organizational service, research contributions and involvement in the academic future of veterinary medicine put him at the forefront and made him a natural choice to receive the Mark L. Morris, Sr., Lifetime Achievement Award. In addition, his authored Textbook of Veterinary Internal Medicine remains the gold standard in veterinary internal medicine resources.”

In recognition of Dr. Ettinger’s lifetime of service, Hill’s will donate $20,000 to the Morris Animal Foundation in his name. The nonprofit was founded by Dr. Mark Morris, Sr., in 1948 and has since funded more than 1,700 studies.
