In the news release, Texas Veterinarian Honored as 'Best Vet' in America; Four Regional Winners Also Named, issued 13-Jan-2010 by Morris Animal Foundation over PR Newswire, we are advised by the company that the last paragraph should read "All of the winners will be honored in front of their peers at the North American Veterinary Conference in Orlando, Fla., on January 16, 2010." rather than " All of the winners will be honored in front of their peers at the North American Veterinary Conference in Orlando, Fla., on January 16, 2009." as originally issued inadvertently. The complete, corrected release follows:

Hundreds of pet owners throughout the country submitted nominations. The contest is co-sponsored by Hill's Pet Nutrition and Dog Fancy, Cat Fancy and Veterinary Practice News magazines, published by BowTie, Inc. Weicht is featured in the January issues of Dog Fancy and Cat Fancy and the February issue of Veterinary Practice News magazines.

Of the award, Weicht said, "I am rewarded every day just being able to serve as a veterinarian. When I am able to make a difference or impact a client, it is especially enjoyable. For someone to take the time to express this in writing is thoughtful, and I feel extremely honored."

Weicht, who works at Brown Trail Animal Hospital in Bedford, Texas, was also named the Southwest regional winner. Four additional regional winners were named:

"Morris Animal Foundation is excited to honor these outstanding veterinarians because they help us provide a healthier tomorrow for animals," said Patricia N. Olson, DVM, PhD, president/CEO of Morris Animal Foundation.

All of the winners will be honored in front of their peers at the North American Veterinary Conference in Orlando, Fla., on January 16, 2010.
