PICK UP YOUR 'HOLIDAY PASSPORT' AND COLLECT STAMPS AT THIS YEAR'S EVENT FOR A CHANCE TO WIN AN 8-DAY ADVENTURE TRIP TO GRENADA WITH WVS!
Delegates to this year's DC Vet will have an opportunity to win an 8-day adventure trip to Grenada with Worldwide Veterinary Service (WVS) for two people by simply collecting a stamp during DC Vet from each of the participating sponsors' stands in the commercial exhibition.
The first couple of days of the trip will see you assist WVS’ supported charity, Carriacou Animal Hospital, the only veterinary care on this small island. Your veterinary skills will be helping the local dog and cat population, providing a vital service and allowing you to make a sustainable difference during this rewarding experience. The hospital is only a short distance from one of the island’s beautiful beaches and focuses on providing low-cost out-patient treatment and preventative health care. This could include vaccinations, worming, and treatments for mange, fleas, ticks, wounds, infections, ear mites, and other diseases, as well as performing routine sterilizations and dealing with any emergency illnesses or injuries. A day in the life of Carriacou Animal Hospital is a busy one, with the team now treating approximately 3,500 patients every year… and you’ll be a key part of this!!
During the first week, you will also explore the Tobago Cays during a boat trip along the famous archipelago in the Southern Grenadines, comprising of five small islands and extensive coral reefs.
The last couple of days of your adventure trip will be spent staying at a luxurious hotel where you can take a more relaxed approach, spending your days exploring the island, swimming in the crystal-clear waters and taking part in a number of water sports.
Your hosts at Carriacou Animal Hospital are excited to welcome you: “We are absolutely honored to host the show winners and cannot wait to meet them!!”
Enjoy all that this sunny Caribbean island has to offer whilst using your veterinary skills to make a real difference! Complete your passport at the show and drop it off at the WVS booth for the chance to win this incredible trip! Your trip must be booked with WVS within 12 months of attending DC Vet!
Competition winners must ensure they are up to date with tetanus and rabies vaccinations prior to departure. Additional costs such as visas, vaccinations, and travel insurance are not included. To maximize your experience, it would be beneficial if both trip attendees are in the veterinary profession. The included flights are from Washington, DC, to Grenada and from Grenada to Washington, DC.
