Dr. Gary Richter, Montclair Veterinary Hospital, Oakland, CA, has entered the Top 10 finalists for America’s Favorite Veterinarian thanks to continued support from his clients and fans of holistic medicine. The contest is put on by the American Veterinary Medical Foundation (AVMF).
“This is fantastic news,” said Dr. Richter. “With the continued diligence of my clients and supporters of holistic medicine, I’ve got a real shot at continuing my climb up the rankings. Don’t forget to vote every day!”
Dr. Richter is the only holistic veterinarian finalist and the only candidate from Oakland. To vote for Dr. Richter, please visit http://ThePetConcierge.com/Vote. If you’d like to sign up for daily reminders, visit http://ThePetConcierge.com/VoteForGary.
The only holistic veterinarian in contention, Dr. Richter was chosen by a judging committee from 500 nominees. Nominees were evaluated on community involvement, ethical behavior, passion for profession, and their connections to pets and their owners. The 500 veterinarians were nominated by their clients in a brief essay why their veterinarian deserves recognition.
The America’s Favorite Veterinarian contest was created three years ago to celebrate the important work veterinarians do every day to preserve and protect the health and welfare of animals. The AVMF is the nation’s only veterinarian-directed animal charity and is dedicated to advancing the well-being of our pets. It’s the charitable arm of the AVMA.
America’s Favorite Veterinarian will be announced in September on their website, http://www.americasfavoriteveterinarian.org/. The winner will receive a $500 cash prize, a year feature on the AVMF website and a community celebration at his or her clinic. In addition, the nominator of the selected veterinarian will receive a special “pet lovers” gift basket.
Voters also will get to show their love of animals by donating to the Veterinary Care Charitable Fund (VCCF), which helps veterinarians provide free or discounted services to clients facing personal hardships.
