FORT LEE, N.J., May 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Summit VetPharm concluded "The Great Vectra 3D(TM)" $125,000 Giveaway by outfitting two more veterinary clinics in Wisconsin and Virginia with new, state-of-the-art medical equipment. Dr. Elizabeth Leonard of Seaford Veterinary Medical Center in Yorktown, Virginia was chosen as the Grand Prize Winner of $50,000 in medical equipment for her veterinary clinic. Dr. Sean Raleigh of Sun Prairie Veterinary Clinic in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin was chosen in the March drawing as the contest's third winner in this multi-level contest and will receive $25,000 in medical equipment for his veterinary clinic. All four winners of the contest will be flown to New York City on May 16th for an all-expense paid awards ceremony weekend.
"The Great Vectra 3D" $125,000 Giveaway was held from January 3 to March 31, 2008 as part of Summit VetPharm's introductory sales incentive program for Vectra 3D, a new broad-spectrum topical that effectively protects dogs against three vectors -- fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes.
Dr. Leonard graduated from VA-MD Regional College of Veterinary Medicine at Virginia Tech in 1987. She is the owner of the Seaford Veterinary Clinic, which has been open for thirteen years and specializes in the treatment of cats and dogs. The clinic is actively involved with the Animal Aid Society of Hampton Roads, which is a non-profit no-kill shelter. In addition, Dr. Leonard is involved in the York County Special Education Advisory Committee for nine years and currently serves as chair.
"I have had a wonderful time dreaming of what I could purchase with this extremely generous prize," said Dr. Leonard. "I decided to mix wants with needs and possible purchases include a Videoscope, heated surgery table, Capnograph, teaching microscope and Respiratory monitor/Apnea alert."
Dr. Raleigh graduated from the National University of Ireland with a degree in Veterinary Medicine and also from the Royal College of Surgeons in London. Dr. Raleigh purchased the Sun Prairie Veterinary Clinic fourteen years ago and offers general medical and surgical services, specializing in ear problems and dental disease. Sun Prairie also offers daycare and has a grooming facility, K9 Corner, which leases a portion of the building. In addition, his clinic provides treatment for the pets at the Madison Humane Society's satellite adoption center. Dr. Raleigh currently has a son serving with the Marines in Iraq.
Dr. Raleigh already has a few purchases in mind with his $25,000 prize. "We intend to digitalize our X-Ray equipment and update our Videoscope system so we can incorporate endoscopic techniques for exploratory, surgical and biopsy procedures," explained Dr. Raleigh.
