Best Vet UK


What are the Best UK Vets awards?

The awards are held annually and recognise veterinary practices across the UK that achieve exceptional reviews from their clients. The awards are hosted by us, – an independent vet reviewing platform and directory website.

What makes the awards special?

The Best UK vets awards are based on independent reviews made by pet owners themselves. Therefore the winners of Best UK Vets is chosen by you and is a fantastic reflection of the winning practice’s client and patient care. When a practice wins the award, other pet owners know that that veterinary practice delivers excellent customer experience, from value for money to professionalism, client care to cleanliness and respect for the animal. The awards help to guide pet owners to find a brilliant vet for their pets. We also acknowledge all practices that place in the top 25 and we have category winners too, which we hope promotes a higher standard of care and feedback across all veterinary practices.

How does a practice win the award?

For a practice to win, they simply have to build up positive reviews from their clients online. They can use both their listing on or on to log the reviews. The British practice with the most 4 or 5 star reviews, from February to February each year, will be announced the overall winner. Our category winners are announced at the same time.

How do you make sure the reviews are reliable?

All the reviews left on are monitored by a member of the VetHelpDirect team before being published online. There are checks in place to ensure our directory and reviewing platform gives authentic and reliable feedback for pet owners.

What does the winning vet practice win?

The main prize for the practice is an awards ceremony and presentation for their staff and you; their clients. For the past four years that the award has been running, the awards celebration and after party have been enormous fun for the community and it’s a prize that congratulations the veterinary practice as well as thanking the clients too.

How can I help my practice win the Best UK Vets award?

That’s easy! Either go to the vet search box, find your vet and click ‘leave a review’ or go to and find and review your vet there. Your review gives your vet valuable feedback and helps other local pet owners find the right vet practice for them too.
