July 12, 2016 – Blue Cross is calling on pet owners across Britain to help it find the UK‘s ‘Veterinary Nurse of the year 2016’.
The award recognises the dedication and support that registered veterinary nurses offer pet owners and their animals, not only by caring for sick and injured pets, but also encouraging responsible pet ownership and improving animal welfare.
“Blue Cross gives this annual award to recognise the hard work of vet nurses across the UK. We are looking for those vet nurses who really go that extra mile to improve the lives of pets,” Blue Cross Director of Veterinary Clinical Services David Catlow said.
If you know a vet nurse who you believe has gone the extra mile for your pet or made a significant contribution to animal welfare, complete the nomination form on the Blue Cross website at www.bluecross.org.uk/BVNA2016. The deadline for nominations is Friday 9 September, 2016.
This year the awards will be presented at the British Veterinary Nursing Association annual congress, which takes place from 7-9 October at Telford International Centre in Shropshire, England.
Last year’s Veterinary Nurse award was presented to Laura Lacey, of Chester, who has been a veterinary nurse for over 10 years. She was nominated for the award for her tireless work educating pet owners and her commitment to animal welfare.
An animal charity since 1897, Blue Cross relies on the generous support of animal lovers to continue its vital work. For more information, or to make a donation, visit www.bluecross.org.uk.
