    XLVets announce that Moy Veterinary Clinic in Ballina, Co. Mayo have become the 26th practice to join the network. Moy Vets have been offering services to farmers and pet owners for over 60 years. The team of veterinary surgeons, nurses and administrative staff strive to provide all clients with a professional, reliable and caring service.

    XLVets Chair, Nick Garvey of the Old Church Veterinary Hospital in Ballyshannon expressed delight at the move noting that “Moy Veterinary Clinic is a Hospital Standard practice and veterinary nurse training centre. They provide veterinary care for cattle, sheep, dogs, cats, etc. with the aim of providing the highest possible standard of care to all its patients, Moy Vets will make a significant contribution to XLVets mission of creating a better future for independently owned veterinary practices in Ireland”.

    The XLVet network of practices are spread from Donegal to Cork and now from Mayo across to Wicklow. As well as providing support services to veterinary practices, XLVets also offers practical training to farmers through its XLVets Skillnet Farmskills training programme and they recently launched on-line training for livestock farmers (Agri Academy) which is delivered by veterinary experts.

    Speaking about the decision of her practice to join XLVets, Rachel Brown said “I am delighted that we are joining the XLVets network. Since the time of Luke Dodd and Ivan Heffernan our clinic has always aimed to offer the highest standard of care to our clients. We have always tried to use the most up to date approaches to farm and small animal practice”.

    Rachel noted that Monica Higgins and herself have followed the development of XLVets in recent years with interest. Rachel explained the decision by adding “with the rapid developments in the veterinary and agriculture industries we at Moy Vets believe that being part of a large network of progressive practices will allows us to continue to optimise the potential of our practice”.

    Rachel went on to say “joining XLVets will enable us to offer innovative services and resources to our clients which will in turn be beneficial for their businesses". I am looking forward to the training opportunities and advice programs available through XLVets Skillnet Farmskills and am delighted these will be made available to the farmers in our region. Our team in the Moy Veterinary Clinic is looking forward to the opportunities XLVets membership gives us".
