Nominations open for ‘Veterinary Nurse of the Year’
Last year’s award went to Fiona Leathers from Bonnybridge, Falkirk, in recognition of her charity work and passion for helping pets.

Awards recognise nurses who go the extra mile in their community 

Blue Cross is seeking nominations for this year’s ‘Veterinary Nurse of the Year’ award, which recognises the dedication and invaluable support veterinary nurses offer their teams.

Each year, the award is given to a nurse who not only cares for sick and injured pets, but also goes the extra mile to encourage responsible pet ownership in their community.

Last year’s award went to Fiona Leathers from Bonnybridge, Falkirk, in recognition of her charity work and passion for helping pets.

David Catlow, the charity’s director of veterinary clinical services said: “Blue Cross gives this annual award to recognise the commitment of vet nurses across the UK who work tirelessly to improve the lives of our pets. We are looking for vet nurses who really go that extra mile to support pet owners and have a significant impact on animal welfare.”

This year’s award will be presented at BVNA Congress in Telford, Shropshire, on 12-14 October.

You can nominate a veterinary nurse online via the Blue Cross website: https://www.bluecross.org.uk/vote-your-favourite-veterinary-nurse-2018

The deadline is Friday, 7 September 2018.

Amur leopard cubs caught on camera

News Story 1
 A pair of Amur leopards have been captured on camera for the first time since their birth. The Royal Zoological Society of Scotland announced the birth in July, but with human presence being kept to a minimum, it was not known how many cubs had been born.

Motion sensitive cameras have now revealed that two cubs emerged from the den - at least one of which may be released into the wild in Russia within the next two or three years. The Amur leopard habitat is not open to the public, to help ensure the cubs retain their wild instincts and behaviour. Image © RZSS
