Ferdinand Lockwood has won his human companion, Kay Lockwood, £200 in shopping vouchers by being the ferret ‘bug’ that travelled the farthest this summer. He travelled 6,000 miles to Table Mountain in South Africa.
Virbac received a fantastic response to its recent competition in VN Times to find the ferret ‘bug’ that travelled the farthest distance this summer.
The bugs were distributed in Veterinary Times in the Spring to promote the new ferret licence for Virbac’s medical castration implant, Suprelorin.
The results were as follows:
- In terms of distance travelled, Finbarr Collett came third, having travelled around 3,500 miles to the White House in Washington DC.
- Freddy Leigh came second with a distance of 4,000 miles to Nairobi, Kenya.
- The clear winner, however, was Ferdinand Lockwood, who travelled 6,000 miles to Table Mountain in South Africa.
While he didn’t actually leave the UK, Fillbert Ferret deserves a special mention as he joined in the fun at a packed Olympic Stadium with his pal Julia Devitt from Castle Vets in Cornwall.
Product manager Chris Geddes told Vetsonline: “We were overwhelmed with some fantastic entries for this competition and would like to thank everyone who took the time to get involved.”
Kay Lockwood of Rainsbrook Veterinary Group in Rugby scoops the top prize of £200 of shopping vouchers but, as so many ferrets showed that they’d really got the ‘travel bug’ this Summer, Virbac has awarded runner up prizes of £50 to the owners of the other ferrets mentioned.
