Best Mobile Vet Award 2019
The Mobile Vet has won the Best Mobile Vet Award 2019 for the second year running.
The awards organised by VetHelpDirect.com and running for the seventh year, are based on genuine pet owner reviews of veterinary practices around the UK. The practices with the highest number of four and five star reviews from their customers over the last year are then rewarded.
Susie Samuel, managing director of VetHelpDirect.com commented: "When animal owners are searching for a vet they want a professional, clean, friendly practice that is good value for money, delivers top customer service and that will above all care for their pet or animal. This is why word of mouth is so important both for local pet owners and farmers. Authentic online reviews give all animal owners a genuine feel for the practice and help them to find a trusted, local vet more easily. We are proud to be able to reward those that are at the top of their league and receive the most positive reviews."
Dan Forster, director at Mobile Vet Ltd commented, "The concept of a mobile vet that provides all the services a traditional vet does is brand new to the UK, so it is fantastic to be recognised as leading the way in this new field. Reviews are such an important part of our business and it is such a great endorsement to win this award based on customer feedback."

Everline Future 50 (2014)
An invitation to a party night in London with comedian Seann Walsh hosting was the result of the Mobile Vet being announced one of Everline's Future 50 businesses in February 2014.
The final 50 was announced at a party in Old Street - the heart of London's startup scene.
The 2014 entries were as diverse as they were brilliant, showcasing businesses poised to revolutionise the way we do just about everything. Having the guts and determination to get a groundbreaking new business up and running is no mean feat so a huge congratulations to everyone on the list. There was serious competition to make the 50 this year so our judges had a very tough job.
Russell Gould, managing director of Everline, said: “We had hundreds of high-calibre entries to this year’s Future 50, showing that small businesses are continuing to find innovative ways to drive the UK economy."
"The UK continues to prove itself as a hub of innovation and we’re really proud to support and celebrate the achievements of these businesses and wish them every.

Best Start Up Business 2013
Ready For Business Awards
Following on from the Mobile Vets win in the Regional awards for best start up business to consumer business of 2013 Kirsty and I travelled to the Houses of Parliament for the National Finals where we competed against other Regional finalists for the best National start up business to consumer business of 2013 and were announced winners!
Obviously we are shocked and excited. The Mobile Vet has only been in action for 6 months now and to even be recognised and nominated for an award is mind blowing. Award winners are decided by business persons from various different business backgrounds who assess each business on their own merits. We feel blessed already to have had such a great reception from the Island residents since providing this service, this really is the icing on the cake and hopefully reflects our willingness to continue to strive to provide the best service that we can for our clients.
We can not thank everyone enough fortheir support in helping us to achieve this recognition.
