PetPlan Animal Welfare Vet of the Year Award nomination for JMICAWE vet Heather Bacon
JMICAWE’s vet, Heather Bacon, has been nominated for the Petplan Vet of the Year award and is now down to the final three.
This is a highly prestigious award, recognising the incredible work vets do to improve animal welfare, with hundreds of vets nominated each year either by their colleagues or clients.
Petplan travelled up to Edinburgh to film Heather and to hear about the work she does teaching students here and overseas.
If you remember, Heather was also nominated for CEVA’s Welfare Vet of the Year and is also down to the final three for that award! It's an exciting time for the JMICAWE team.
The winners will be announced in April during BSAVA Congress in Birmingham at two separate award ceremonies and we are feeling very hopeful that Heather’s many years of hard work in teaching and improving animal welfare for companion animals and captive wildlife using an evidence-based approach will finally be recognised.
