Pet Owners Across the Country Honor Their Veterinarians During World Veterinary Year

    Morris Animal Foundation Offers Program for Clients to Recognize Their Veterinarian

    DENVER, Aug.  24, 2011—In conjunction with many veterinary organizations across the globe, Morris Animal Foundation is celebrating World Veterinary Year by recognizing the important role veterinarians play in the health of our animals. This year marks the 250th anniversary of the founding of the world’s first veterinary school in Lyon, France, and World Veterinary Year celebrates the rich history of the veterinary profession and the veterinarians around the world who continue to protect and promote animal health.

    Morris Animal Foundation is also helping clients celebrate the role veterinarians play in promoting the human–animal bond and working to prevent, treat and cure disease so that animals might have longer, healthier lives. Through the Foundation’s Honor Your Veterinarian program, clients can recognize their dedicated veterinarian by sending a card or, with a gift of $500 or more, placing their veterinarian on Morris Animal Foundation’s Veterinary Honor Roll. Veterinarians added to the Veterinary Honor Roll receive a beautiful, customized plaque to display in their clinic, and they will be recognized in our eNews and on our website. The following veterinarians were recently added to the Veterinary Honor Roll:

    Dr. Kirk Weicht
    Brown Trail Animal Hospital
    Southlake, Texas

    Dr. Keri Jones
    Homeward Bound Animal Hospital
    Arvada, Colorado
