In 2010 we launched the UKs first veterinary review & ratings website 'The Good Vet Guide'.   The idea came after we lost our 3 year old Great Dane at a dedicated Out of Hours Vet, it was without doubt the worst experience we have ever had with any vet.

I left their practice that morning with an overwhelming sense that something wasn't right - it just felt wrong - so much so that we complained, first to the vet then to the RCVS.  After surviving the fallout from our complaint we decided to do our best to make sure that no-one else ever had to go through what we did.

From losing Ted The Good Vet & Pet Guide was born – a website where pet owners could review and rate vets to highlight the great ones and to alert pet owners to those who were repeatedly below standard.

Fast forward a few years and, we have expanded to include not just vets but dog walkers, home boarders, trainers, pet boutiques, groomers, holidays destinations, days out and many more – a one-stop shop for everything pet.

So whatever pet you have, you are guaranteed to find something that will either make you laugh or simply improve your understanding of these wonderful animals who share our lives.

We are united by our love for the paw pals who share our lives - you could say that pets are the beating heart of our business!

We won't pretend to know it all - which is why we work alongside some of the UKs leading vet & pet experts; you can find tons of pet related info, news, competitions and quizzes in our blog.

Free and unlimited access to our directory - find the right business for your pets needs. If you can't find what you're looking for - just drop us a line and we will try our best to help you.

We offer free & paid for advertising within our directory for: Vets, alternative therapies, pet services, pet food & treats, products, dog friendly holidays, photographers, artists, gifts and products for pet owners and B2B services.

We launched in 2010 with the sole reason of helping you find the right care for your pets - did you know that we were the first UK Vet directory that offered you the chance to 'review & rate' your vet .... we were told that it 'would never catch on’

In 2014 we opened up our directory to include all UK pet related businesses and started offering a paid option to feature your business within our guide.


Forward on to 2018 and not only are we still here - we are growing too! That's because our ethos hasn't changed since day one, we still want to:

· Help you find the right care for your pets

· Highlight the best so the rest fall by the wayside

· Focus on the positive - not the negative

.... and with your continued help and support we can do just that!
