Our professional vet proofreading services enable website owners to ensure they are only giving the best, vet-accredited, information. Getting a vet to proofread your pet blog for accuracy is a great way to make sure your pet advice is safe, clinically sound, and unlikely to cause harm. It’s also the best way to update a lot of old articles to add authority without having to have them all rewritten.

We’re very careful when we check pet blogs to make sure that all statements can be backed up with sound scientific principles and sources. We don’t homogenise your articles- you’re allowed your opinion- but we do make sure that you aren’t saying anything medically incorrect or potentially harmful. Dog’s lives can depend on your pet content being correct, so it’s essential that your blog is up-to-date and scientifically sound. That’s why our vet proofreading service is so popular.

Our vets are all qualified and regularly undertake further study to ensure they’re ahead of the curve when it comes to the latest scientific knowledge and advancements. And when they come across claims or ideas they aren’t familiar with, they are more than happy to research the topic further to ensure the advice is correct. In other words, you can be sure that our vet proofreading service brings your blog article in line with the latest thinking in pet health.

If you think having a qualified vet check your articles for medical accuracy sounds like what you need, just get in touch. Our admin team will be more than happy to explain the service, and get your site vet-approved!

FAQs about our vet proofreading service:

What do your veterinarians check for when proofreading?

The main thing our vets are checking for is inaccurate medical information. Usually, this comes as health claims, or treatment recommendations that don’t align with evidence. However, they’ll also check your symptoms lists are complete (and you haven’t missed an important symptom) and that all treatment options are covered. They might change the tone of the article slightly, to ensure the seriousness is correct for the condition, or they might add a paragraph to explain something in more detail, to make sure owners can’t get confused. In the end, your vet proofreader will ensure the article reads well and that the information contained is safe.

How much does vet proofreading cost?

We charge per hour (or part thereof) for our vet proofreading services. The time taken depends on the quality of the original article. However, we’re happy to give you an estimate based on an example article.

How do I attribute the finished article?

Because your vet hasn’t written the article, you can’t add them as the author. Your original writer likely used phrases that your vet wouldn’t have, and so they don’t want articles attributed to them that they didn’t write. Most people add ‘medically reviewed by…’ or ‘checked by…’ to their articles. You can use the vet’s name and qualifications, and even write them a bio – you just can’t say they wrote the article. You can also email us to ask for our ‘vet approved’ logo.*

*Please note this logo must NOT be placed in such a way as to suggest we have approved a recipe, ingredient, diet, or product – only the article may be approved.
