Date:5/20/2008

dation. "We are also very pleased to have the BowTie publications returning as our media sponsors. We received many nominations last year from their readers."

The partnership between MAF and Hill's dates back to the 1940s when Dr. Mark L. Morris Sr. developed a special diet that halted kidney disease in dogs. The diet became so popular that Dr. Morris couldn't meet demand, so he teamed with Burton Hill, owner of the Hill Packing Company, to produce the innovative dog food. This agreement inspired what is today the line of Prescription Diet(R) pet foods, manufactured by Hill's Pet Nutrition and available exclusively through veterinarians. Dr. Morris used the royalties from that agreement to establish Morris Animal Foundation.

"We are very proud to support this initiative that helps us express just how grateful we are to have so many great veterinarians across the country," Janet Donlin, Hill's chief veterinarian, said. "The number of nominations and the stories submitted along with them are extremely moving and remind us, the veterinarians, why we chose this rewarding career in the first place."

One national winner and five regional winners will be selected by a panel of judges. Winners will be contacted by November 1, 2008, and will be honored before their peers at the February 2009 Western Veterinary Conference in Las Vegas. Winners will be featured in the March 2009 issues of Veterinary Practice News, DOG FANCY and CAT FANCY magazines. All nominees will receive a nomination certificate.
