The Practice

Clanrye Veterinary Clinic was first established in 2000 at the Old Ardmore Hotel Gate Lodge on the Belfast Road in Newry. It is a family-owned practice with the 2nd brother joining the clinic after two years of working in mixed practice in Fermanagh. The brothers are from Killowen near Rostrevor, being locals gives the brothers an edge in ensuring clients, be they large scale milk producers or a child with a precious first pet, get the reassuring service they need.

Our team of nine vets across two clinics, backed by the equally committed veterinary nurses and receptionists, is an amazingly positive blend of experience, enthusiasm and expertise in the latest animal health innovations. No two days are the same and we endeavour to provide the best service and care to our clients and patients!
