The third annual "Thank Your Vet for a Healthy Pet" contest, conducted by the Morris Animal Foundation, has brought in more than 370 nominations.
The contest honors America’s veterinarians for their dedication to helping animals and strengthening the bonds people have with their pets.
One national winner and five regional winners will be selected and featured in the January 2010 issue of Veterinary Practice News, a co-sponsor of the contest along with sister publications Dog Fancy and Cat Fancy. Hill’s Pet Nutrition of Topeka, Kan., is also a co-sponsor.
The winners will be honored at the North American Veterinary Conference, which takes place in January in Orlando, Fla.
The contest judges include last year’s winner, Rachel Boltz, DVM, of Adobe Animal Hospital in Los Altos, Calif.; Julie Legred, CVT, president of the National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America; Jason Merrihew with the American Animal Hospital Association; and Marilyn Iturri, editor of Veterinary Practice News.
