7:30am Monday 8th October 2012 in News
A PET health counsellor (PHC) from Cramar Veterinary Practice, in Hopwood, has been shortlisted for a national industry award which celebrates the work of PHCs in veterinary practices.
Sophie Campbell has been selected as a finalist by pet food manufacturer Royal Canin for its 2012 ‘Pet Health Counsellor of the Year’ Awards.
She said: “I’m delighted to have been shortlisted for the award. Royal Canin’s scheme has given me the confidence and skills to develop specialist clinics at Cramar Veterinary Practice, which have proved to be hugely beneficial in giving our clients the specific advice and training for their pets’ needs.”
The annual ceremony celebrates veterinary professionals for promoting preventative health care and running pet health clinics in practice. The Hopswood-based PHC was recognised for her work running firework pet clinics.
This year’s ceremony will take place at the De Vere Belton Woods Hotel in Lincolnshire, where the 18 finalists will be judged by world-renowned animal behaviour expert Sarah Heath.
Royal Canin’s veterinary sales and marketing director, Andrew Doyle, said: “The Royal Canin Pet Health Counsellor scheme was set up to encourage veterinary nurses to advance their professional development and over 1,500 have now attended our residential training courses.
“Becoming one of our PHCs provides tools and training to enable them to set up effective clinics and services in their practice. It’s been great to see so many fantastic entries for this year’s awards and I look forward to seeing all the worthy finalists recognised for their hard work.”
