Dechra Veterinary Products is running a competition for the best dermatology display in a vet practice waiting area. The competition is open to all veterinary nurses throughout the UK, who have the chance to win £100 in high street shopping vouchers.
Carol Morgan, Product Manager at Dechra Veterinary Products, says: “Research shows that more than 20 per cent of all small animal consultations in general veterinary practice involve dermatological problems¹ so we know this is an important area. We want to provide veterinary practices with some attractive display materials, highlighting the signs owners need to look out for, and encourage practices to use these by launching this competition.”
Dechra’s sales team will be distributing display material, highlighting the signs of skin problems owners need to look out for, under the headings itchy, scratchy, licky, smelly and happy. Veterinary nurses are being encouraged to create an eye-catching display with the material available and enter the competition to win the £100 in vouchers.
To participate in the competition, veterinary nurses can get hold of the display material by contacting 01743 441 632 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
