Clare O’Dwyer, a veterinary nurse from Terrington Vets in King’s Lynn, has been presented with the first-ever ‘Outstanding Contribution to Pet Health Counselling’ Award by pet food company Royal Canin.

Clare was recognised for her dedication to promoting preventative health care whilst running a wide variety of pet health clinics for local pets and their owners.

For example, in the past year alone, Clare has organised obesity clinics, dental clinics, puppy parties, senior pet clubs and an open day for the practice, as well as presenting bravery awards to some of her recovering patients.

Royal Canin presented Clare with £500 of high-street vouchers, along with the award’s inaugural gold badge and certificate, plus a hamper stuffed full of goodies including food, a mug, t-shirt and stationery.

The presentation took place at a surprise party organised by her colleagues and husband – with a special guest of honour, Sherman her pet French Bulldog, who she’d hand-reared from a pup after he was born with a cleft palate.

Speaking about her award, Clare commented: “It’s a real honour and a little overwhelming to be honest! I just want to thank my colleagues for all their support and a big thank you to Royal Canin too, as it’s always lovely to be appreciated.”
