Who we are

The Veterinary Content Company is made up of a group of freelance pet writers who are also veterinarians. We love all things pet, and use our unique insight to write amazing pet health content.

We encourage pet owners to educate themselves and research their pet and his health in a safe way. The internet is full of rubbish, but we want to help make it a safe space where people can learn. We do that by making sure our articles are only written by vets, who are qualified to give pet advice.

This commitment to excellence is consistently rewarded by Google. Our articles improve pet website SEO, giving us satisfied clients and allowing us to grow to having over 20 vets writing for us.

What we do

Pets are our science; writing is our art.
Our pet writers are experts at helping vet and pet businesses thrive with blog content, brochures, infographics, and newsletters on any pet or animal topic.

If you need it, we also offer keyword research, pet market consultations, content strategy and pet marketing strategy services.

Use our menu to browse our services by who you are (pet business, veterinary practice, or B2B companies) or what you need (pet copywriting, clinical proofreading, SEO for pet businesses, or more). Or, if you know what it is you’re after, head straight to the contact us page to get in touch!

Why choose a vet writer?

Any good content writer can write about pets. But our writers are all veterinarians. Why?
Vets are experts on the subjects of pet health and behaviour. Our vets provide authentic, unique content that your readers can trust. In addition, Google highly rates expertise, authoritativeness and trustworthiness (we call this E-A-T, you can read more here). The more authority your writer has, the better ranked your page will be.

And really, when it comes to a dog’s life, is it worth your pet content writer being wrong?


Our writing team is constantly growing, so we have highlighted some of our longstanding pet writers below. You can see the (nearly!) full list of vet writers, and read their portfolios, here.

Chief Editor, Pet Vet Writer

Dr Joanna Woodnutt BVM BVS BVMedSci MRCVS

Jo still manages to write many of our articles, although she's also in charge of editing and managing the team.

Hi all, I'm Jo!

I set out on my freelance writing mission when I realised that writing meant I could help more pet owners than just the one in my consulting room. I'm an experienced writer and I've been featured in national magazines and have written hundreds of blog articles for pet websites. People often ask me for a portfolio, but in truth Googling my name will bring up more articles than I even remember writing- my laptop is full of everything from articles about joint supplements to articles about mental health, and everything in between.

I set up The Veterinary Content Company when my writing business was getting out of hand. I got to the point that more was landing in my inbox than I could physically write, and it was getting hard to keep up. Now, I have a team of writers and I manage the articles, edit the finished pieces, and spend time writing the things that mean the most to me.

Writing has enabled me to fulfil my dream of moving home to the Channel Islands, where I also run the island's only salad farm with my partner Ian. We also have a mixed-breed terrier called Pixie, who often ‘helps’ me with my writing!

Dr Hannah Godfrey BVetMed MRCVS

Hannah is a fast and accurate writer producing much of our best content

Hannah graduated from the Royal Veterinary College in 2011 and began work straight away at a busy mixed practice. Initially, she treated all species, but as the small animal hospital became busier, she focussed on small animals from 2014. She has a passion for soft tissue surgery as well as canine and feline dentistry, having completed additional training in both areas.
Since 2018, she has worked at a smaller, independent practice close to home, in order to devote more time to her other love – writing comedy fiction. She hopes to soon be a published author.

Since her graduation from the University of Liverpool in 2014 she has worked in a wide variety of roles including first opinion practice, as a night vet and as a locum vet.
