About Us

The International Canine Health Awards are returning for the fifth year to celebrate some of the world’s finest researchers and scientists whose work has had a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of dogs. Nominations are currently being sought for the awards, which are run by the Kennel Club Charitable Trust and include substantial cash prizes donated by Vernon and Shirley Hill of Metro Bank to go towards new or continued research. The three categories for the International Canine Health Awards include International Prize in Canine Health for outstanding contribution in the field of canine health and welfare with a prize fund of £40,000 for future projects. A Lifetime Achievement Award with a £10,000 prize fund open to veterinarians or scientists and Student Inspiration Awards which will be split into undergraduate and postgraduate, with a prize fund of £10,000 for the post-graduate and £5,000 for the under-graduate winner.

Miss Jennifer Palfreyman, University of Liverpool

STUDENT INSPIRATION WINNER (UNDERGRADUATE) Jennifer Palfreyman is a third-year undergraduate on the veterinary medicine course at the University of Liverpool, whose talents extend beyond the realm of science – she previously had a successful career as a professional saxophone player. In the second year of her course Jennifer carried out a research project on the oriental eye worm Thalazia callipaeda, a parasitic infection of the eyes of humans, dogs and horses which will cause blindness if left untreated. The parasite is spread by the fruit fly Phortica species and the first UK cases have recently been identified in dogs imported from Europe. In her earlier project, Jennifer examined the distribution of the insect vector at six locations in the south of England. Funding from International Canine Health Awards will enable her to extend that work over a greater geographical area to assess the likely risk of the parasite becoming established in the UK. Her grant also supported her in ...

Alice Denyer, Royal Veterinary College, London

STUDENT INSPIRATION WINNER (POSTGRADUATE) Alice Denyer is young veterinary surgeon who relishes the challenge of finding out about the complex interaction between genetic and environmental factors as a cause of clinical disease in dogs. She graduated from the University of Cambridge in 2015 and spent two years in practice in her home county of Kent where she developed a particular interest in the management of endocrine diseases in her canine patients, notably diabetes. Alice successfully applied for a prestigious London Interdisciplinary Doctorate programme and in September 2017, she began studying for PhD at the Royal Veterinary College, under the supervision of RVC professors Brian Catchpole and Lucy Davison. Her project will investigate the genetic basis for differences in susceptibility to pancreatic disease between the Samoyed breed (which has a high prevalence of diabetes mellitus) and in Boxers (which are resistant to diabetes but are prone to developing insulinoma, a malign...

Dr Danny Scott, James Law Professor of Dermatology (emeritus), Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine, New York

LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD WINNER Dr Scott has been described as one of the best known and most respected veterinary dermatologists in the world. He has made a massive contribution to improving the health wellbeing of dogs and other veterinary species through both his original research on skin diseases and his teaching of successive generations of young veterinarians. Born in California, Dr Scott underwent his initial training in his home state before crossing the USA in 1971 to take up an internship in small animal medicine at Cornell where he has been based throughout an illustrious career. He developed new methods for analysing skin lesions which have revolutionised the diagnosis of many different diseases by making the results of skin biopsies easier to interpret. Dr Scott was responsible for improving the recognition and treatment of generalised demodecosis in dogs, a distressing condition which previously would often have resulted in euthanasia. He also carried out crucial stu...

Mrs Tina Watkins

BREED HEALTH CO-ORDINATOR OF THE YEAR Mrs Tina Watkins receives an award in the new category of Breed Health Co-ordinator of the Year for her unstinting efforts to improve the health and welfare of the Basset breed. After a career as a manager in the transport industry, Mrs Watkins has harnessed her formidable administrative talents to running health screening and training on behalf of her fellow Basset enthusiasts within the eight separate clubs serving the breed in the UK. A life-long dog lover, Mrs Watkins kept a number of different breeds before settling on the Basset hound. She bred her first litter in 1990 and went on to a successful career breeding, showing and judging within the Basset world. As a health coordinator her particular skill has been in encouraging others in the breed clubs to have their dogs tested for cherry eye, glaucoma and other eye diseases commonly inherited by Bassets. She has been recognised as a ‘true custodian’ of the Basset breed and her skills and ...

Professor Yasuko Rikihisa, Department of Veterinary Biosciences, College of Veterinary Medicine, Ohio State University.

INTERNATIONAL AWARD WINNER Professor Yasuko Rikihisa, Department of Veterinary Biosciences, College of Veterinary Medicine, Ohio State University Prof. Rikihisa has devoted her career to creating a better understanding of rickettsial conditions, a group of related diseases transmitted by ticks which affect humans and domestic animals, including dogs. Her work led directly to the development of the diagnostic tests used in veterinary practices around the world to identify dogs infected with one particular rickettsial, disease, Ehrlichiosis (also known as canine typhus). This is a debilitating and often fatal condition caused by a parasite that infects and survives within the white blood cells of its host. In the 1980s Prof. Rikihisa developed a method for growing the Ehrlichia organism in laboratory culture, a pre-requisite for carrying out research into how the parasite interacts with its host. This development underpinned her later research into diagnostic methods which have allowe...
