I often talk about how much Oxbow cherishes our relationship to the veterinary community. We have partnered with key veterinarians from our earliest days, and this relationship continues to inspire and guide us today. As a small symbol of our appreciation for the selfless work of veterinary leaders, we recognize one special individual each year with the Oxbow Exotic Mammal Health Award. The award is presented annually at the joint conference of the Association of Exotic Mammal Veterinarians/Association of Avian Veterinarians/Association of Reptilian & Amphibian Veterinarians. I’m excited to announce that this year’s winner is Dr. Brendan Carmel of Australia. Dr. Carmel is a true standout in the field of exotics medicine, and continues to inspire, lead, and teach others each day.  I invite you to learn more about Dr. Carmel and his ongoing legacy of great work in the field of veterinary medicine.  To all the veterinarians out there, thank you so much for all you do!
