Those with a Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum icon alongside the practice name are Compassion Understood accredited practices which have undergone special training in end-of-life care for pets and their owners.
Those with "registered only" alongside their name are working towards accreditation status
By becoming accredited these practices are demonstrating their commitment not only to their clients, by ensuring the most difficult time of pet ownership is handled compassionately, but also towards the care of their veterinary team.
The level of accreditation is dependent on a percentage of people within a practice that have undergone Compassion Understood training, rather than a specific number. This is to encourage whole team training, which will have the best outcomes for the client as well as for the team themselves. This means that the highest level of accreditation – Platinum – is achievable by all sizes of practice, and not just those with large staff numbers.
