Promoting your accredited practice

We have a range of promotional material available to members of the RCVS Practice Standards Scheme to help promote accredited practices.



This video helps to promote the PSS to the animal-owning public, explaining what RCVS accreditation can mean for clients and their animals to encourage people to look for the RCVS accredited practice logo. 

A slightly different version of the video is available for you to post on your practice website and social media channels. There's even a subtitled version if you would like to play the video in your waiting room, so you can keep the volume down!

For either of these versions, please email the PSS team at

It's available in a variety of formats (PowerPoint slideshow, jpg images and wmv video) and in three different screen sizes (4:3, 16:9 and 16:10 ratios).
