The two main veterinary categories are the Chris Laurence Vet of the Year and Welfare Nurse of the Year.

The Chris Laurence Vet of the Year Award, in association with Veterinary Times, recognises a vet in practice who emulates Chris’ dedication to animal welfare by educating pet owners and consistently demonstrating a commitment to the continued improvement of animal welfare standards.

The VN Times Welfare Nurse of the Year Award is given to an individual who has shown real commitment to improving and championing excellent animal welfare within their practice.

While those in the farming industry can be nominated in both categories, the addition of the Farm Animal Welfare Award last year means those working in the farming industry can also be recognised.

Ceva UK’s managing director Alan Doyle said: “The ever-increasing number and quality of nominations we receive year on year just goes to show the number of people that share our vision to improve the welfare of animals.

“It is so important to honour and champion these inspirational people, that have gone beyond the call of duty to really make a difference, and also use this event to highlight important issues in animal welfare to the wider animal care community”.

A panel of industry professionals will judge the awards. The 2016 ceremony will again take place on the eve of BSAVA Congress.
