Craig E. Greene, professor of small animal medicine and surgery, received the 2005 Mark L. Morris Sr. Lifetime Achievement Award from Hill’s Pet Nutrition. The award is presented annually to a veterinarian who has made a lifetime commitment to improving the health and well-being of companion animals.
Known internationally for his research on infectious diseases in dogs and cats, Greene has written three textbooks, more than 35 chapters in other textbooks, more than 100 refereed publications in scientific journals and at least 185 presentations to audiences across the globe.
In recognition of Greene’s lifetime of service, Hill’s Pet Nutrition, Inc., made a $20,000 donation to the Morris Animal Foundation in Greene’s name. The Morris Animal 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.
