Our Team

Arra Vets in Tipperary was established in 2007. We care about only two things; you and your pet. Our goal is simply to provide the highest standard of care for our patients and to deliver that care in a personal and friendly environment where our clients are given the time and understanding they deserve.

Introducing Milo, our Chief Executive officer. He oversees the running of the whole clinic.

He is always on standby as part of the welcoming committee, a special welcome for the poor postman.

The clinic would not run smoothly without this dude!
