About Us

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.



At Vet Space Ireland, we understand that all veterinary professionals work in a busy and at times mentally, physically and emotionally challenging environment. As such, we want to do our little bit to try to lighten your day. The Vet Space podcast will discuss all the weird, wonderful and sometimes bizarre antics that go on in veterinary life. Our hope is simply to bring a smile to your face.


Along the way we will be talking to experts in their particular field in veterinary. Asking them how they achieved success, their top tips and how they manage their work life balance and maintain wellbeing. Also keep an eye out for Vet Space Ireland educational events.


Vet Space Ireland is intended to be a platform for all veterinary professionals to engage in a constructive and supporting way. The Vet Space Podcast will help you keep up to date with all that’s current and new in the industry. Engage and entertain also go hand in hand so stay tuned for Vet Space Ireland’s social events.
