“My name is Des Groome, owner-founder of Groome Vets Ltd. I grew up on a stud farm in Carbury, co. Kildare surrounded by Mares, Foals, Cows, Dogs, Cats, Foxes and all God’s creatures. I think I was born to be a Vet and have worked with animals my entire life as farm hand, stable lad, dog trainer, jockey, Vet. After an early veterinary career globe trotting and working with every species from racehorses to tigers, camels and parrots I established Kildare Vet Surgery in 1999 and built an accredited pet hospital here in 2005. My guiding ethos as a Vet is to help animals live their best natural lives. There are 3 ways we do that which make us different from other practices- We focus on your animals lifestyle helping you understand your pet and their natural needs. We focus on preventative healthcare for your pet. And when your pet does become ill or elderly we focus on quality of Life issues before we do the usual array of scans and tests. Our health plans are a life plan to keep your pet healthy. We are now developing daycare facilities, boarding kennels,a dog park, dog training service, pet fitness centre and our Groome Vet range of premium food. All these innovations are moving me closer to my life time aim of helping animals live their best natural lives. I recruit like minded people who’ve also grown up with animals and are here to support pet owners. “
