Veterinary Practice: The UK's leading monthly veterinary publication

Veterinary Practice magazine is a lively, informative and educational publication devoted solely to the issues facing veterinary practices right now.

Each month's issue features the best writers in the profession on the topics of the day, with informed comments on current challenges along with concise features.

  • CPD
  • employment law
  • literature review
  • practice design
  • investments
  • latest product developments
  • health and safety
  • nursing news
  • regular signposted sections for large animal and equine
  • industry and product news ... and much, much more.

And what is more, as a monthly magazine we don't litter your post-box every week with hoards of unwanted plastic bagged magazines. Not only is this hugely wasteful they are also time consuming to dispose of and it is annoying when they continue to arrive in spite of requests not to.

High standard of entries in the 2013 design awards

THE results of the 2013 Practice Design Awards, run by the BVHA in association with Veterinary Practice, have been announced. The president of the BVHA, Geoff Skerritt, praised the high standard of the many entries received and said how difficult it had been not only to select three finalists in each category but subsequently to determine the winners. He thanked all the practices which had taken the trouble to enter the award, thanked the sponsors for the prizes and for sponsoring the prize-giving luncheon, and said the next competition would be in 2015.
