Entertain. Inform. Engage. Inspire. 

Vet Space Ireland was created by Michelle Maguire and Hazell Mullins to promote learning and positivity within the veterinary world. Both share a passion for all things veterinary, wellbeing and keeping up to date with veterinary current affairs in Ireland.

The survey from the VCI on mental health in veterinary professionals in Ireland is open for two more weeks!

If you haven't already please take the time and take part in this survey. 🙏

There has been extensive research into the area of mental health in the veterinary profession in many other countries but we have never had research like this carried out in Ireland by a regulating body.

We know we need change, but we don't know enough to implement change.
Please, for yourself, your colleagues and the profession as a whole have your say, in this survey!

Happy weekend ☀️🤗

Have a great day 🤗

Special Vet Support Ireland episode of the @vetspaceireland Podcast.

We were delighted to be joined by 3 of the incredible volunteers, Fiona McFarland, James Buick and Niamh Toner.

We discuss the amazing work they do for the vet community, who they are, how to contact them and what issues they can help. “There is no issue too small” – this is a reoccurring theme of the podcast.

If you ever felt/feel like you don’t know where to turn for help perhaps Vet Support Ireland is your answer. It’s a fantastic resource for us as a profession and it’s for the whole vet family.

Veterinary Nurse Awareness Month 2021 🧡

Veterinary Nurses in Ireland are the most, undervalued, under paid and under utilised resource of the Veterinary practice today.

How can we change that and better support nurses?
