Best UK Vets Award

Time is Ticking on the Best UK Vets Award…

And it could be your practice receiving a massive marketing boost in 2018…


What is BUKV?
For those who don’t yet know, the Best UK Vet Awards, sponsored by VetHelpDirect, are intended to reward excellence in customer service. The award is based on the number of positive reviews left by clients on either VetHelpDirect.com or Any-UK-Vet.co.uk from February to February every year. The awards give the winning practices a lot of local press exposure, boosting their positive reputation to potential clients.

On the 29th March, this year’s overall winner of the BestUKVets 2017 award, Penmellyn Vets in St Columb Major, based in Cornwall, was presented with their trophy by the founder of VetHelpDirect, Susie Samuel.

Best UK Vet Awards 2017 - the Results are In!

Most of our readers will probably be aware of the Best UK Vets Awards which we sponsor, but for those who don’t, it’s a reflection of our commitment to genuine, client-led reviews. On the websites VetHelpDirect.com and Any-UK-Vet.co.uk, clients can leave reviews of their practice. They are invited to leave a star-review (one star for abysmal, five for excellent), plus any comments about that practice.

On 10th of February we then count up all the four and five-star reviews, and the practice with the most is declared the winner. They receive free publicity from us (like this blog, among other things!), a series of press releases, and an awards ceremony & after-party for their clients, PR materials, a trophy, certificate, banner...the list goes on!

This year, the winner is…
