From years of experience in dealing with a variety of animal nutritional issues we pride ourselves with being able to use this knowledge to create a range of food that we know will be suitable for every type of client that comes through our doors.
We are aware that many brands leading the food market, are foods of poor-quality ingredients, designed only to be appealing to pets but not be of any actual proper nutritional value.
With such a large variety of foods available it can be extremely confusing for owners to know which type is best leading to the belief that more known and expensive brands are the way to go.
All of this encouraged Des to look into creating his own brands of food, with the type of selected ingredients that he knows will suit all types of diets. He has created three types of foods Groome Vets Grain Free, Gym Dog Super Premium and Gym Dog Superfood. All varieties are available in store and on our online shop

-​Dr Des Groome's motto .


“”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, Racehorses, Cows, Dogs, Cats, Foxes, Rabbits and all God’s creatures. I think I was born to be a Vet and have worked with animals my entire life either on the farm as a stable groom, 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 thirdly 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 have established also a sister company GymDog limited which will develop our Pet Gym service alongside Groome Vets to further improve pet’s lives by offering dog training, day care, fitness and therapy. This will make our hospital, resort and therapy centre for pets at South Green Road Kildare unique in Ireland.
I believe our mission of Helping Pets live their Best Lives is a unique statement in the Irish Veterinary Landscape

I recruit like minded people who’ve also grown up with animals and are here to support pet owners. “”
