IVC Evidensia has announced the opening of its first start-up practice in Northern Ireland.
Stormont Veterinary Practice, located in Belfast, will be led by vet Tom Fitzsimons (MVB, PGC(SAM) MRCVS), who moves from his role at “well-established” Garden Lodge Veterinary Clinic.
He will work alongside Rebecca Martin (BVSc MRVS) and Dermot McInerney (BVSc MRCVS). Richard Kelly (MVB MRCVS) will also join the team to offer dental referral services to other practices in the region.
The clinic said that its opening hours will adapt over the coming months in order to offer appointments and surgeries at times that suit their clients’ working hours.
The waiting rooms, consultation rooms and kennels all have separate areas for cats and dogs, making the visit to the practice as “stress free as possible” for clients.
Fitzsimons said: “Stormont Veterinary Clinic will provide the option of a practice closer to home for clients living in Dundonald with state-of-art equipment and facilities, enabling us to help and diagnose our clients’ pets quickly.
“We’ll be offering preventative treatments like dental consults and parasite control as well as puppy parties and nutritional advice, all at times that suit our clients.”
