Vets love cake!
You could reply “who doesn’t?” but in a slightly tongue-in-cheek way of marking its 60th birthday, the British Equine Veterinary Association (BEVA) is celebrating with the hashtag #vetslovecake.
Clients are asked to show their appreciation for their vets by getting their bake on, and if possible, sharing pictures of their creations online with the hashtag.
A BEVA spokesman told H&H its current president, Huw Griffiths, and former president Lucy Grieve “agreed that, while they have some fabulously generous owners who regularly provide a bottle of wine as a ‘thank you’, halfway through a long day on the road, nothing beats a cake — even if it’s a ‘chocolate brownie’ that resembles a worm egg count sample!
“A home-made cake always makes a happy vet, but, having been proffered ‘alternative’ cakes in the past, Huw and Lucy both think that more traditional baking is safer…” he added.
