MELVILLE, N.Y., March 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Henry Schein Cares, the global corporate social responsibility program of Henry Schein, Inc. (NASDAQ: HSIC), the world's largest provider of health care products and services to office-based dental, medical and animal health practitioners, bestowed the Henry Schein Cares International Veterinary Community Service Award upon Dr. Ross Trevor Blanks.  The award was presented at the World Small Animal Veterinary Association Conference in Auckland, New Zealand on March 7 by Lonnie Shoff, President and Chief Executive Officer, Global Animal Health and Strategic Partnerships, Henry Schein, Inc.

The award honored Dr. Blanks' exceptional work as a management coordinator for the veterinary emergency response team and a member of the management team that established the animal welfare response center in the aftermath of the catastrophic February 2011 earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand. 

Provet, a Henry Schein Company, is Australasia's largest distributor of veterinary products. Based in Brisbane, Queensland, Provet is a full-service veterinary distributor and service provider, including pharmaceuticals, pet nutrition products, consumables, instruments and equipment, and training and software. The Company is focused on veterinary practices and operates four core businesses: veterinary product wholesaling; sales, support and development of practice management software; consulting, education and training services; and online business activities.

" Henry Schein is pleased to honor Dr. Blanks, an extraordinary person who truly exemplifies the best of what a health professional can be," said Stanley M. Bergman, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Henry Schein, Inc. "Dr. Blanks' work to care for pets affected by the tragedy that struck Christchurch and his efforts to re-unite these pets with their owners was exceptional.  This work is exemplary of Dr. Blanks' outstanding career of service over the past two decades to improve the health and welfare of pets in his community and throughout New Zealand.  He is the perfect person to accept our inaugural Henry Schein Cares International Veterinary Community Service Award."

The Henry Schein Cares International Veterinary Community Service Award, created by Nigel Nichols, Chief Executive Officer, Provet Group, and John Maclachlan, Member of Provet's Advisory Board and Past President of the New Zealand Veterinary Association, honors exceptional acts of valor and commitment by veterinarians in the face of adversity. Dr. Blanks will present the $5,000 check from Henry Schein Cares to the New Zealand Veterinary Emergency Response Team.

"Provet is so proud to have the inaugural Henry Schein Cares International Veterinary Community Service Award presented at the World Small Animal Veterinary Association Conference, a premier gathering of veterinarians from all over the world," said Nigel Nichols.  "Dr. Blanks is truly a hero here in New Zealand, and we are honored to spotlight his extraordinary contributions to Christchurch on this global stage."
