Dr. Jacob Mosier's Dedication Recognized by Hill's

 

For more than 47 years, Dr. Jacob Mosier has been an integral part of K-State's College of Veterinary Medicine.  He served as head of the Department of Surgery and Medicine and Director of the Dykstra Veterinary Hospital for 20 years.  In honor of his dedicated work in the veterinary profession, Hill's Pet Nutrition, Inc. has awarded Dr. Mosier the Mark L. Morris Sr. Lifetime Achievement Award.

The award, established to honor a veterinarian who has significantly contributed to the health and well-being of companion animals through a lifetime of service, was presented to Dr. Mosier during the opening ceremonies of the North American Veterinary Conference, January 13,2001 in Orlando, Florida.

In addition to the award presented to Dr. Mosier, Hill's is making a $20,000 donation to the Morris Animal Foundation in Dr. Mosier's name.  The Foundation, founded in 1948, improves the health and well-being of companion animals and wildlife by funding humane health studies and disseminating information about these studies.
