The International Canine Health Awards are returning for the fifth year to celebrate some of the world’s finest researchers and scientists whose work has had a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of dogs.
Nominations are currently being sought for the awards, which are run by the Kennel Club Charitable Trust and include substantial cash prizes donated by Vernon and Shirley Hill of Metro Bank to go towards new or continued research.
The three categories for the International Canine Health Awards include International Prize in Canine Health for outstanding contribution in the field of canine health and welfare with a prize fund of £40,000 for future projects. A Lifetime Achievement Award with a £10,000 prize fund open to veterinarians or scientists and Student Inspiration Awards which will be split into undergraduate and postgraduate, with a prize fund of £10,000 for the post-graduate and £5,000 for the under-graduate winner.
