Bayer Animal Health is asking veterinary professionals to nominate their peers for the Bayer Animal Health Legend of the Year Award. The award is intended to distinguish veterinary team members that go beyond everyday practice to provide exceptional equine care, according to the Shawnee Mission, Kan.-based company.
Nominations will be accepted at www.mylegendaryvet.com through Oct. 31.
The winner will receive $5,000 to donate to the equine charity or cause of his choice. The award will be presented by Bayer Animal Health during the American Association of Equine Practitioners’ 56th Annual Convention, set to take place Dec. 4-8 in Baltimore.
The contest is being launched in conjunction with an interactive equine personality quiz for horse owners. The quiz, found at www.mylegendaryhorse.com, is designed to find the “Legendary Tails” behind the horses’ personalities through the eyes of some of history’s most influential figures, according to Bayer Animal Health.
