Most Outstanding Veterinary Service 2019 – London


To mark the end of a successful year, County Canine has been awarded the Lux Life Most Outstanding Veterinary Service 2019 – London! The award highlights the innovative approach to veterinary care that the company has and the experience both dogs and their owners have in utilising the service. Still in its early years, the response to the service which combines the knowledge of traditional medicine alongside additional therapies of chiropractic, acupuncture, physio and laser therapy has been fantastic. No other service provides this combined approach in London and we are grateful for this recognition! What a great start to 2019!

Best New Veterinary Practice in the UK


County Equine and County Canine, a veterinary practice based in London, was named the Best New Veterinary Practice in the United Kingdom after having won the National Veterinary Awards. This category celebrated practices that opened less than 5 years ago, recognising the challenges of opening a new business and establishing a loyal clientele. County Equine/County Canine was chosen among 6 finalists from all around the UK and received the largest number of votes from the public.

‘I am absolutely thrilled to have been made the winner in this category. To have been recognised for the innovation and hard work to develop a practice combining traditional veterinary medicine and values alongside additional therapies to improve the overall performance and quality of life of the animals I see is just the icing on the cake! It’s been a steep learning curve but it has been worth it’, said celebrated veterinary surgeon, Dr Marvin Firth MRCVS. The practice covers the South of England, London and Europe looking at both horses and dogs. Other than Dr Firth’s extensive veterinary medical knowledge, the practice also offers unique treatments such as chiropractic, acupuncture, physio and laser therapy to assist animals that compete in professional sports or even those with aches and pains, helping dogs and horses that are getting older or are recovering from surgery.

The National Vet awards invited veterinary professionals and practices from the entire country to submit their entries. A panel of judges selected 70 finalists and winners were decided based on a public vote. The competition received over 7800 votes with winners in 10 different categories.

Port Eliot Dog Show in aid of Cornwall Children’s Hospice


Dr Marvin Firth MRCVS made the trip down to Cornwall over the May Bank Holiday to officiate at the 2nd Dog Show for the Cornwall Children’s Hospice in the beautiful surroundings of the Port Eliot Estate. His trusty companion, Golda also made the journey to the South West after having had orthopaedic surgery on her back leg only 3 days previously. Not to be deterred, Golda assisted in the category ‘the dog the judge would most like to take home’. As always, a great day with fantastic weather. A privilege to be part of such a great event. Best in Show a fantastic Border terrier!
