Peter Scott, director of Vetark Professional, received an honorary membership to BVZS during their spring meeting at Marwell Zoo. The award is ‘in recognition of service in the field of veterinary zoological medicine and surgery and in particular as a measure of appreciation for the contribution made to the furtherance of the aims of the society.’
This award is a significant honour for Peter as it comes from a society that has played an important part in his life, from the many posts held with the society to it’s championing of exotic animal welfare, a cause Peter supports across the veterinary profession and through his work at Vetark. Current holders include Michael Brambell, John Cooper and Peter’s mentors Mike Fielding and Derek Lyon.
Michael Stanford, society President, states it is ‘these achievements and his unwavering enthusiasm for discussion and debate have contributed significantly to progress in many areas of exotic animal health and BVZS wanted to recognise this contribution.’
