Blacks Vets Dudley Hospital has been announced as winner of the Best UK Vets award for the second year running.
The West Midlands group had the mayor in attendance at a ceremony hosted by VetHelpDirect.com, while two of its other practices scooped second and third place in the same category.
The independent awards are in their fourth year and give practices across the UK the chance to showcase their attention to client care and celebrate it with their community.
Category winners are based on the number of authentic, positive online reviews regarding the practices that are left by clients, making pet owners the judges.
A VetHelpDirect.com spokesman said: “Every British practice is eligible and hundreds of practices pushed for it by proactively asking clients to help them win.
“The final few days before the winners were announced was exciting, with last-minute bids from several practices. Congratulations to all.”
