It was an amazingly successful introduction of the American Veterinary Medical Foundation’s first-ever America’s Favorite Veterinarian contest, and our AVMF organizers couldn’t be happier with the results. We received more than 1,000 Facebook entries for a contest that was created to honor distinguished veterinarians and to promote the good work they do each day for animals and their owners.
Our winner this year, Dr. Carlos Campos of Spring Hill, Fla., is profiled on the AVMF webpage, where you can read his story and browse a list of the other America’s Favorite Veterinarian finalists.
Dr. Campos was nominated by one of his clients at the San Francis Veterinary Hospital. He exemplifies the veterinary oath through his overwhelming compassion and his intense respect for animals and is a perfect recipient of the inaugural awarding of the title of America’s Favorite Veterinarian. 2014 will mark the return of the contest, so keep an eye on the AVMA@Work blog and the AVMF webpage for more details down the road.
