Auburn Veterinary Hospital was founded by the late Fintan Cooney and Michael King in 1989 having previously practiced as Cooney & King. Enda Finnerty (Mullingar native) joined the practice in 1993 and became a partner in 1996. Declan O’Brien joined the practice in 1996 and became a partner in 1998. Enda and Declan remain as co-directors of Auburn Veterinary Hospital Ltd.
The practice base has been at Auburn Road since 1990. Auburn Veterinary Hospital is a busy mixed practice with an increasingly busy small animal hospital, while retaining a large animal/farm practice. Our practice has progressively improved with modernisation of equipment, keeping pace with industry standards. We now have full gaseous anaesthesia facilities, digital x-ray, lab facilities for blood tests, full biochemistry and haematology.
Enda and Declan, work with veterinary surgeons, Caroline Farrell, Jenny Algar, Diane Farrar, Maria Paternottre and Cathal Conway to provide a comprehensive veterinary service to the people of Mullingar and surrounding area. Indeed we provide a referral service to outlying practices that need 2nd opinions, work ups, x-rays, blood test and surgeries.
Our veterinary nurses Jenny Gibson, Lee-Anne Maye and Jill Booker, our student nurse Rachel Coyle and our animal care assistant Roisin Dodd provide excellent nursing care to all our in-patients and nurses are always available to advise clients over the phone or in person at Auburn Veterinary Hospital.
