To celebrate the launch of our new Animal Health Business, we held an internal Pet Posers competition which was open to all of our employees within the UK.

Entrants were given the challenging task of getting their pawsome pets to sit still long enough to be photographed featuring the STERIS Animal Health Services scarf. There was only one key rule to this competition – strictly NO humans!

We had some fantastic responses to this competition with lots of adorable pet photos featuring many different weird and wonderful companions from bearded dragons to bouncing bunnies.

After the closing date for photo entries, all of the photos were submitted to our two judges Adrian Coward (SVP for STERIS Instrument Management Services) and Kevin Holder (Managing Director Europe & Middle East for STERIS Instrument Management Services).

They had the difficult job of choosing their six favourite photos. Once selected, these were uploaded to our social media channels (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter) to go to a public vote.

Once the votes had been counted (and there were a lot to count) we announced our 2017 Pet Poser – Yulka!

Yulka is a 5 year old Peruvian Guinea Pig. Her favourite food is dandelion leaves and she most enjoys eating and sleeping – which I’m sure we can all relate to!

As the winner of our competition, you will be seeing lots more of Yulka as she will be featured across all of our marketing materials and on our website. She also received a bespoke hamper, handpicked by our Development and Quality Manager, Anna Earle.

We would like to again thank everyone who entered the competition, we very much enjoyed receiving all of the lovely pet pictures and getting to know each of your special friends. Also another big congratulations to Yulka and our 5 runners up!
