Entrants have the chance to win the use of a Subaru Outback for six months.

To mark the launch of the 2017 BVA In Practice CPD programme, the association has teamed up with programme sponsor Subaru to find a vet to give one of its Outback models the most intense test drive possible.

All members need to do to enter is log on to the BVA community and outline why they have the toughest veterinary job in Britain in 75 words or fewer.

Whether it’s the challenges of tough and inhospitable terrain, harsh weather conditions or hefty and uncooperative patients, the BVA and Subaru want to know.

The entrant deemed to have the toughest job by a panel of judges will win the use of a Subaru Outback for six months.

BVA president Gudrun Ravetz said: “Being a vet is one of the most rewarding jobs you can do, but, in whatever area of the profession you work, it is also one of the toughest – from the bustle of the lecture theatre to the precision of the laboratory, our work can be pressurised and come with considerable responsibilities; from cats that bite to cows that kick.

“As vets, we need tools we can rely on with absolute confidence to get the job done and our car is no exception – the Subaru Outback challenge is a great opportunity for a BVA member to put a top-end car to the sort of test only a vet can give it.”

  • Entries close on 15 December – visit the BVA website for more information.
