In this ‘Day in the Life series, with XLVets Ireland and MSD Animal Health, during Day 3 we follow Pat Devine, Lismore Veterinary, XLVets Ireland member practice.
Pat is currently busy with pre-breeding preparation including scanning cows, washing cows and sync programmes. Pat also has a number of mares in his care. Similar to Mulcair veterinary, Pat had a number of castration procedures on horses and bulls. We also got to visit a piggery where Pat took blood samples and nasal swabs to monitor the health status of the piggery.
Watch back on the busy day we had with Lismore Veterinary Clinic. Video below gives a great insight to the day in the life of a mixed veterinary practitioner.
