Royal Canin Vet Nurse Quiz 2022

Ten years on and we have just hosted our biggest and best annual Vet Nurse Quiz to date. This year the event was held at the fabulous Waldorf Astoria Downtown and we had a record number of attendees at 114. These were both veterinary nursing and reception staff from 20 clinics across the United Arab Emirates.

Dr Hannah, head of scientific communications at SV Companies, started the event with an introductory education session focusing on the differing nutritional requirements for neutered pets and for golden oldies. Following this, the teams from various veterinary clinics competed in two close-run quiz rounds.

The questions are always of two genres: firstly, we have the serious science, based on a learning pack provided before the event and the introductory lecture given at the beginning of the event; secondly, more light-hearted animal themed entertaining brain teasers. This year questions ranged from what are the components of an antioxidant skin protecting complex…. to exactly how a koala digests his dinner!

The standard amongst the participants was incredibly high- people really had done their homework! Huge congratulations to Euro Pets, City Vet Clinic UAE, Nad Al Shiba Vet and Dog Venture HQ for being crowned our 1st, 2nd and 3rd place champions!
