A Lincoln veterinary surgery was so impressed by the work of one University of Lincoln student that they plan to distribute the leaflet she designed to their customers.


David Beech, a partner at the Veterinary Hospital on Newport, judged a competition run for students on the National Diploma in Animal Management course at Riseholme Park.


The competition asked the students to design a leaflet aimed at children telling them when their pet may need to go to the vets.


First-year student Jenny Reynolds (16), from Thimbleby near Horncastle, designed a leaflet entitled ‘Do you need a vet?’ which impressed both her tutor and the clinic.


Now the Veterinary Hospital plans to include the leaflet as part of their puppy and kitten packs which they give to new owners.


"We are really proud of Jenny and the leaflet she produced,” said unit tutor Angie Bayfield.


“It just goes to show what fantastic students we have and what great results they can achieve in the real world.


“We'd also like to thank David at the Veterinary Hospital for all his support and time."
