    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. This was a proud moment for everyone at the practice and it was fantastic to see so many of their devoted clients in attendance to share this special moment with them.

    During her presentation speech, Susie highlighted the tremendous effort that the clinic obviously made to put client care at the heart of the practice, “Penmellyn vets received 839 reviews, which is the highest ever number of reviews for any practice in the entire history of BestUKVets.This is a fantastic achievement and incredibly well deserved, it’s been a great day and a real honour to meet everyone and present the award”.

    Penmellyn partner Philip Harris, who accepted the award on behalf of the St Columb Major clinic, addressed the 50strong audience, “This is a real honour for Penmellyn Vets and I know that all the directors are

    Immensely proud of the work that we do here.It really is thanks to all the hard work from our staff and the excellent care that they take of our clients and their pets every day”.

    Penmellyn really did shine this year and, as well as storming to victory with the title of BestUKVets 2017, their equine team also bagged the highly sought award for Best Equine Vets. Susie Samuel presented the certificate to director Ruth Varcoe who received it on behalf of the equine team.

    In honour of this prestigious event, the decision was taken to close the doors to all the Penmellyn Vets branch practices between 11 am and 2 pm (bar emergency appointments and in-patient care), to enable as many as possible from the wider team to attend.

    With so much to celebrate, the atmosphere was buzzing with proud clients and team members enjoying the lavish award cake, nibbles and drinks. Keen not to forget the practice’s four-legged clients, invites were also extended to clients’ pets and honorary canine team members – who also turned out for the big day.

    The award-winning care taken of both clients and patients inspired nearly 900 glowing reviews on two of the largest UK veterinary directories, www.vetHelpDirect.com and www.Any-UK-Vet.com.

    One client, Jane Dyer, who had taken the time to leave a review, commented at the award ceremony, “I joined the practice in the mid-80s and have been with them ever since.They are such a friendly and amazing team and are always very compassionate and caring - they really are just a lovely caring bunch”.

    It was a fantastic day for the clients and the practice team at Penmellyn Vets, who are clearly very deserving winners of this year’s BestUKVets award.

    • Free poster warning of the risk of antifreeze poisoning in cats
      Jo Kitson


      It is a sad fact that, with the arrival of winter comes an increase in the number of cats poisoned by antifreeze.

      Most antifreeze solutions (often used in cars in the winter) are based on a product called ethylene glycol. Ethylene glycol is very toxic to all animals when ingested, causing rapid and frequently fatal injury to the kidneys.

      Cats are particularly susceptible due to their specialised metabolism. Cats only need to drink a teaspoon or
