Hannah Hunt is 2022’s Young Vet of the Year!

The British Veterinary Association (BVA) has announced Dr Hannah Hunt as Young Vet of the Year 2022

Dr Hannah Hunt has been awarded the prestigious prize in recognition of her passion and exceptional dedication to her high-level work across multiple species, including farm animals, equine and companion animals.

She was selected from a field of more than 100 entrants by the award judges BVA President Malcolm Morley, President of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) Melissa Donald, Professor the Lord Trees, Zoetis National Veterinary Manager Jonny Lambert and last year’s winner of the award, Alex Davies.

Hannah Hunt, who graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in 2015, has also appeared on national radio giving veterinary advice and on children’s television to promote being a “big animal vet”.

BVA President Malcolm Morley said: “Hannah’s incredible enthusiasm and passion for her work as a mixed-practice vet really made her stand-out to us.

“She is excelling in her work across species, which is challenging enough, but she’s also doing it at a high level.

“Hannah is constantly striving to learn new skills and to progress in her career and is even learning to speak Welsh to strengthen relationships with her Welsh-speaking clients in her bi-lingual practice.

“A huge congratulations to Hannah, we know she has a bright future ahead of her.”

BVA’s Young Vet of the Year award, which is now in its 4th year, highlights the outstanding work of young vets who are making a significant contribution whether in their workplace or the wider veterinary community.

It aims to share and celebrate an exceptional young vet who leads, inspires, and goes above and beyond what is expected of them early on in their career.
