Nominate Your Vet by August 31, 2009.

Throughout our dogs’ lives, we rely on veterinary professionals to help them remain strong and healthy.  With luck, and sometimes a little determination, we find a vet who is particularly caring and honest and whose judgment we trust completely.  

Having a veterinary professional that you trust and can really depend on becomes even more important after your dog has been diagnosed with cancer.  Those vets who guide you along the journey, point you to helpful resources and fight along side you during your dog’s battle as if they were their own furkid are true heroes to many of us, and sometimes it makes us realize how few GREAT veterinarians there really are out there. 

To recognize some of these great veterinary professionals, and to thank them for their dedication to keeping our companions healthy and happy, the Morris Animal Foundation is seeking nominations for their “Thank Your Vet for a Healthy Pet” short essay contest. 

The contest runs July 1 – August 31, 2009 and essays only need to be 300 words or lessALL veterinarians who are nominated will receive a certificate to let them know how valued they are, and winners will be notified by September 22. The national and regional winners will be featured in the January 2010 issues of Dog Fancy and Cat Fancyand also on and The winners will also be officially recognized at the North American Veterinary Conference in Orlando, Fla., on January 16, 2010.

So, if you are one of those lucky ones to have a veterinarian that deserves to be recognized for their compassion and skill, take a few minutes to nominate them for this honor.  Being a great veterinarian takes so much more than just a good education, and these amazing professionals who save our pets’ lives every day, deserve our sincerest thanks.
