Monday, 12 December 2011 22:38

Animal lovers everywhere can support and honor veterinary medicine by voting for one of five projects submitted in the 2011 Heska Inspiration in Action Contest.

Heska, a leading provider of veterinary diagnostic and specialty products, will award the grand prize winner $25,000 and the second place winner $5,000 to help bring inspired ideas to life (subject to official contest rules).

"Veterinarians spend countless hours working to impact the human experience through our bond with animals," said Robert Grieve, Heska's Chairman and CEO.  "Serving that bond every day creates room in the imagination to think differently about solutions to important problems that directly impact the health of both animals and humans worldwide.  Heska promotes this contest as a means to encourage innovation.  We are honored to provide this opportunity to our colleagues.” The five contest finalists include Belize Wildlife and Referral Clinic, Inspiring Future Leaders in Veterinary Science, Project V.E.T.S., Project S.T.R.A.Y. (Stray Training and Rehabilitation by Area Youths) and Veterinarians without Borders/Veterinaires sans Frontieres (VWB/VSF).

The public is invited to choose this year’s winner by voting at www.heska.com/action before December 18.
