Celebrating the profession’s shining stars

By Georgina Mills

The veterinary profession’s top talent in animal welfare were celebrated last week at Ceva’s annual awards, which took place on the eve of the British Small Animal Veterinary Association (BSAVA) congress.

The awards recognise the achievements of remarkable people from the veterinary, farming and charity industries who go beyond the call of duty to better the lives of animals around the world.

The Chris Laurence Vet of the Year for 2019 was Hannah Capon. This award, which was sponsored by Vet Record, recognises a vet who educates pet owners and demonstrates their commitment to the continued improvement of animal welfare.

Capon developed Canine Arthritis Management (CAM) to raise awareness of arthritis among dog owners and vets and to help create effective long-term management plans. The CAM website is an educational resource and source of support for both owners and vets, with the aim of relieving pain and distress for dogs suffering from arthritis.
