A number of veterinary professionals are celebrating after scooping a BSAVA Award in recognition of their contribution to science.

The accolades were presented on the first day of BSAVA Congress 2017 (6 April) at the ICC in Birmingham and are just one of many celebrations planned for the four-day event, with this year marking the congress’ 60th anniversary.

The BSAVA Awards are designed to show appreciation to dedicated profession members who carry out pioneering research, develop new techniques and who are constantly raising the standards of veterinary science.

BSAVA president Susan Dawson said: “I am so pleased to be involved in recognising the achievements of those vets and nurses who have made such enormous contributions to the veterinary profession.

“Congratulations to all those receiving an award and I am looking forward to seeing the nominations for next year.”
