The NexGard Spectra ‘Yum and Done’ competition from Boehringer Ingelheim Animal Health UK Ltd.

The lucky prize winner was Kelly Lowe from Damson Vets, who enjoyed an overnight stay with gourmet dining experience for two plus a pizza delivery and hamper of tasty treats for her practice.

Kelly said: “I am a veterinary care assistant and also a college lecturer in animal care.  I use NexGard Spectra for my dog which is why I entered the competition at the practice. It was such a lovely surprise to get the call to say I had won.

“The Lygon Arms has been recommended by lots of my dog owner friends and so I thought it perfect to have the night away with my dog, Grace. Everyone at the practice loved the pizza lunch and it came on a busy day so was appreciated even more.  The hamper was an extra special surprise, really amazing!

“Winning this competition made me take some time out to relax which was long overdue."

Evelyn Murphy, NexGard Spectra’s brand manager, is delighted with the response to the campaign so far: “A tasty parasiticide can make giving parasite protection a real treat for owners and their dogs, as well as helping to improve compliance. Our new ‘Yum and Done’ palatability campaign has been designed to help practices start that valuable conversation with owners in a fun and engaging way and has already had remarkable uptake.”
