Vet given prestigious award

An Enderby veterinarian has received an award that supports education for veterinarians in Canada and animal welfare.

Equine veterinarian Dr. Susi Cienciala received the Dr. Carol Morgan Memorial Award - named in honour of a former BC SPCA board member - from the Animal Welfare Foundation of Canada.

Morgan passed away in 2015.

“I’d like to express my sincere gratitude to the late Dr. Morgan and to the AWFC for helping me continue with my studies and to follow my passion of equine behaviour and welfare,” Dr. Cienciala said. “My goal is to bring the science of how horses learn to veterinary students in Canada, to both improve the welfare of their patients and to keep them safer as equine veterinary practitioners.”

Morgan was an advocate for animal welfare and ethical veterinary practice.

The AWFC established a fund where donations contributed will be used to honour Morgan’s dedication to veterinary practice. 

“I believe that veterinarians should be leaders and role models in the field of animal behaviour and welfare,” Cienciala said.
