Our practice in Ireland is licensed by the Irish Veterinary Council and is the largest poultry practice in Ireland. Our practice based at the Edinburgh Vet School works closely with its neighbours, Moredun and Lasswade, to provide a comprehensive poultry and laboratory service.
Our internal laboratory can carry out bacteriology, water, worm egg and dipslide testing. We also work closely with external laboratories to carry out serology testing.
Medicines are usually supplied from the Dispensary which is also a licensed wholesaler, however the regional areas do hold some supplies of medication and vaccine as required.
