Nominations open for Blue Cross Veterinary Nurse of the Year award
"Blue Cross gives this annual award in appreciation of the commitment of vet nurses across the UK".
Pet owners and veterinary practices invited to put forward their ‘star nurses’

Nominations are now open for the Blue Cross Veterinary Nurse of the Year award.

The award, which will be presented at BVNA Congress in October (11-13), recognises the dedication of the country’s veterinary nurses and the support they give veterinary teams, pet owners and their animals.

It is given to a veterinary nurse who not only cares for sick and injured pets but goes above and beyond to encourage responsible pet ownership and improve pet welfare in the community.

Last year’s winner was Tyrina Gibson from Newcastle, who was described by her nominator as “inspirational – a champion for animals with extensive knowledge and incredible commitment.”

“Blue Cross gives this annual award in appreciation of the commitment of vet nurses across the UK who work tirelessly to improve the lives of our pets and other animals,” said David Catlow, Blue Cross director of veterinary clinical services.

“We are looking for vet nurses who really go that extra mile to support pet owners in their communities who have a significant impact in improving the nation’s animal welfare”.

Pet owners and veterinary practices are being invited to put forward their ‘star vet nurses’ for the award. If you know somebody who has gone the extra mile for a pet, or has made a significant contribution to animal welfare, visit https://www.bluecross.org.uk/vote-your-favourite-veterinary-nurse-2019

The rules, which also apply to cinemas, museums and places of worship, follow a recent spike in coronavirus cases. All clients in England must now wear a face covering when inside a veterinary practice unless they are exempt for age, health or equality reasons.

BSAVA webinars to shine the spotlight on selected journal papers

A free series of webinars that take a closer look at selected papers published in the Journal of Small Animal Practice has been produced by the BSAVA.

In the new BSAVA Science webinar series, authors of the featured papers discuss their results with a panel and how they may impact clinical practice. The authors then answer questions submitted by audience members.

The webinars are available via the BSAVA Webinar Library, covering four different papers. JSAP editor Nicola Di Girolamo, said: "Discussing the research with the authors - experts in their field - really helps to bring the papers to life."
