Pet owners and industry professionals have until May 17 to nominate someone as America’s Favorite Veterinarian, an annual award sponsored by the American Veterinary Medical Foundation.

The winning veterinarian will receive $500 and a trip to the 2016 American Veterinary Medical Association convention in San Antonio.

The national contest is in its third year. The first two winners were Carlos Campos, DVM, of San Francis Veterinary Hospital in Spring Hill, Fla., and Tim Hunt, DVM, of Bayshore Veterinary Hospital in Marquette, Mich.

Though Drs. Campos and Hunt are companion animal practitioners, nominees may come from any line of veterinary work, including private practice, research, public health, academia or agriculture.

Nominations, which require an essay of 250 words or less on why the veterinarian is deserving of the award, are being accepted at www.AVMF.org/AFV.

Twenty finalists will be put to an online public vote to determine the winner. The voting will run from July 11 to Sept. 1.

The American Veterinary Medical Foundation is AVMA’s charitable arm.
