Veterinary Surgeon

Violet Doherty
Violet Doherty BSc MVB Veterinary Surgeon

I initially started my career as an Occupational therapist. However in 2014 I decided to go back and peruse my dream of becoming a vet

After graduating from UCD in 2018 I moved to the UK where I worked in a busy Small Animal and Equine hospital for one year.  

From here I decided Small Animals - in particular Surgery and Emergency/Critical care was a route in which I wanted to focus my career, so I moved to a second-referral hospital just outside of London where I worked until the Covid pandemic hit. This brought me home and I joined the team here at Kilcoole Vets in November 2021

In my spare time I enjoy cooking, travelling, yoga and a good music festival! 

I have two cheeky labradors called Molly and George who live at home in Mayo with my parents, and a cat called Catt Damon who rules the roost in Dublin.
