About Best Friends

Why Best Friends?

21 practices in the Midlands and North London

We’re dedicated to providing a high standard of veterinary care.  Our electronic records system offers you the flexibility of our branch network.

There for you whenever you need us

Established in 1992, we offer first-class veterinary care 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, with emergency cover at every practice.

Forward thinking every step of the way

We work hard to offer the latest in veterinary care, and have our own hospital for those times when your pet needs it.

Best Friends Veterinary Group was established in 1991 at the Broadway Peterborough site. The branch was awarded ‘Hospital Status’ by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons. Over the past 26 years, the group has grown to 21 sites from the Midlands through to London.


The group provides these students with financial support, transport, supervised practical sessions and one-to-one training with a qualified veterinary surgeon or nurse.

Without these approved training centres, student nurses would be unable to fulfil their chosen careers.

Best Friends now employs several veterinary surgeons who have or are studying certificates in ophthalmology, cardiology, exotics and orthopaedics.

“Fantastic service and they are always so friendly. Our dog actually likes going to the vet, I wouldn't take her anywhere else!”
