The Best UK Vets award (read more here) was created to promote the importance of online reviews for vets; helping local pet owners to find the best vets for them and have confidence when choosing a new vet for their beloved pets.
To win the award, veterinary practices must build up a collection of positive online reviews from their clients. The award is free to enter and every practice is eligible.
By building up online reviews, you are building up word of mouth recommendations about your practice and steering people towards your door. Whether you win the award or not!
WHY DO I WANT MY PRACTICE TO WIN THE AWARD?

Certificate, trophy, website banner and other marketing materials - publicise your achievement to new and existing clients alike, they'll know they are in good hands with your practice.

YOU HAVE 13 MONTHS TO GO FOR THE 2017 WIN
If you're still pushing to win the 2016 award (announced next month) that's brilliant. If you think winning in 2017 is more realistic, start building up reviews from Feb 11th 2016 - all reviews after that date will count towards the 2017 results.
