Local Veterinarian Dr. Tim Hunt at the Bayshore Vet Hospital in Harvey is in the running for America's Favorite Veterinarian.
Hunt was nominated by a client from Gwinn. He's now competing against 19 other vets for the title.
Hunt has been a vet in the area for more than 20 years now. He says he owes his recognition to his staff, and quality of care they provide to the animals.
And says it's all about the animals.
"I love this area it's a great community of people to work with. I've been able to see generations of animals go through. I've been able to watch people and their children grow up. Kids have pets and see them carry on the tradition of their family with taking care of their pets right," said Dr. Tim Hunt.
To support him in the competition cast your vote by the end of August.
