Vets and vet nurses are being asked to nominate colleagues for the UK’s Veterinary Nurse of the Year 2017 award.
The award, from The Blue Cross, is designed to recognise the dedication of vet nurses and their support to their veterinary teams, the nation’s pets and their owners.
Improve pet welfare
It recognises vet nurses who not only care for sick and injured pets, but those who also encourage responsible pet ownership and improve pet welfare in their community.
This year the awards will be presented at BVNA Congress, which takes place in October, in Telford, Shropshire.
Last year’s award was presented to Samantha Shand, who received the accolade for a second time, having been awarded the title previously in 2012.
The vet nurse who works at Quarrington Veterinary Surgery in Sleaford, Lincolnshire, was nominated for her contribution deemed to be: “Above and beyond her role, both for her commitments to charitable work and education”.
If you know a vet nurse who you believe has gone the extra mile for a pet, or you believe they have made a significant contribution to animal welfare, complete the nomination form via the Blue Cross website.
- The deadline for nominations is 8 September 2017.
