Blue Cross pet charity is calling out to animal lovers, pet owners and veterinary teams across the UK to nominate their ‘Veterinary Nurse of the Year 2021‘. The nomination period this year is tight with a deadline for entries by Monday 20 September 2021. To avoid disappointment, register your top vet nurse by visiting www.bluecross.org.uk/bvna now.
The charity’s award recognises the dedication of the country’s vet nurses and their invaluable support to their veterinary teams, the nation’s pets and pet owners. The award is given to a vet nurse who not only cares for sick and injured pets but also encourages responsible pet ownership and improves pet welfare in their community.
The award will be presented at the British Veterinary Nurse Association (BVNA) Congress on Saturday 2 October 2021, which will this year be a hybrid event with live speakers at the event in Telford and remote delegates so no-one misses out.
David Catlow, Blue Cross Director of Veterinary Clinical Services said: “The veterinary profession faced difficult times for much of the past couple of years but vet nurses strove on to provide their usual professionalism, compassion and special care for pets and their owners. Now, more than ever, we need to recognise their invaluable work and the incredible reassurances and support they offer pet owners and how they are dedicated to helping the welfare of the nation’s pets in their communities.”
Last year, the Award went to Chloe Mackintosh who is a veterinary nurse at RSPCA in Harmsworth, North London and was nominated for her passion and commitment to animal welfare.
The deadline for nominations is Monday 20 September 2021.
As a charity, Blue Cross relies on the generous support of animal lovers to continue its vital work caring for pets. For more information, to see pets looking for a new home or to make a donation visit www.bluecross.org.uk.
