Our congratulations go to Dr Penny Watson, who was recently awarded the BSAVA (British Small Animal Veterinary Association) Woodrow Award, which is presented to a member of the BSAVA for outstanding contributions in the field of small animal veterinary medicine.

The BSAVA Awards are designed to show appreciation to dedicated profession members who carry out pioneering research, develop new techniques and who are constantly raising the standards of veterinary science.

The award takes the form of BSAVA manuals, a cheque and a gift from the President in memory of C.E. Woodrow, a founder member of the Association and its first President.

We are carrying out an important research project into the development of the nostrils in brachycephalic (short-faced) dog breeds. The breeds that we are looking at in this study are French Bulldogs, English Bulldogs and Pugs. 
If you are a new owner of one of these breeds and would like to help us by taking part in this study, please take a look at the following page:
