This special award recognises the dedication and support that registered veterinary nurses offer pet owners. Not only by caring for sick and injured pets but also encouraging responsible ownership and improving animal welfare.

Last year's Veterinary Nurse award was presented to Laura Lacey, from Chester, who’s been a vet nurse for more than 10 years. She was nominated for her tireless work educating pet owners and her commitment to animal welfare.

David Catlow, Blue Cross Director of Veterinary Clinical Services said: “Blue Cross gives this annual award to recognise the hard work of vet nurses across the UK. We are looking for those vet nurses who really go that extra mile to improve the lives of pets."
