Virbac Equine SQP of the Year Finalists 2012 are announced

Virbac Animal Health are pleased to announce the six finalists of the Virbac SQP of the Year Award 2012.  
It was in 2011 that the Virbac Equine SPQ of the Year Award was instigated in recognition of the important role played by SQP's in offering sound and well balanced advice on worming issues to horse owners, and in recognition of the hard work and training undertaken by SQP's to achieve this level of competence.   
During the past year horse owners and colleagues have been nominating their local SQP who, in their opinion, go the extra mile to offer help and advice.  From the many nominations received six finalists have been invited to attend BETA International, where, after undergoing a final interview from a distinguished panel of judges that includes the 2011 winner Suzi Law, they will be acknowledged in a prestigious presentation that will take place on Sunday 19th February at BETA International, and the winner will be presented with their Award.
'We are delighted to announce the final six in the 2012 Virbac Equine SQP of the Year' said Virbac Equine Product Manager Tom Blacklock ' our finalists have already been 'mystery shopped' and we have some excellent candidates in the final six, so  I am sure that the panel will have a tough decision to make to find a winner'.

Mandy Dawkes - Wynnstay, Denbighshire
Sarah Gardhouse - WCF, Carlisle
Toni Wise - Dovehouse Farm, Beds
