  • Feline Medicine
  • General Practitioner
  • Internal Medicine (This can include specialities in Nutrition, Oncology, Internal Medicine, and/or Neurology)

  • Impact towards a patient, client, team, or community.
  • Ability to help educate clients.
  • Aptitude for showing patience, compassion, and perseverance in the face of difficulties.
  • Understanding of the science and how treatments are designed.

From this criteria, the nomination form will ask nominators to provide a thorough and thoughtful description of how the nominee has recently demonstrated a significant impact in the veterinary field.
