About Us

Thomastown Veterinary Clinic was established in 1987 in Thomastown, Co. Kilkenny by Richie Brennan. The practice soon grew in size due to its reputation for providing top class veterinary care to all creatures great and small. In 1992 we moved to the existing site beside the cemetary in Thomastown. This provided more space for small animal work but also gave us space for sheep, cattle and horses. In 2009 Richie's daughter, Helen Austin (Brennan), joined the practice. The practice has continued to expand since and we recently opened our brand new, purpose built small animal hospital on our existing site.
