|When Cornelius O’Driscoll set up his veterinary practice in Bandon in 1915, he could not have dreamed that it would still be serving the people of West Cork a century later. Glasslyn Veterinary Clinics in Bandon and Kinsale are rightly proud of their reputation for high quality care based on 100 years of experience combined with cutting edge technology, the best skills and the most modern facilities. Glasslyn is now one of the largest veterinary practices in the country with nine full-time vets and a crack team of support staff, and two clinics offering state-of-the-art facilities to protect and improve your animal’s health.|
All creatures great….
When Con started in 1915, and when his son John Doc took over in the 1950s, working animals were the order of the day. Pets were viewed as a fanciful notion and most of the business was conducted in fields and farmyards. Large animals like cattle, sheep, horses and donkeys are still an important element of the business today but the emphasis has shifted from dealing with emergencies – known as ‘fire brigade’ work – towards herd and equine health management, working with farmers to enhance and improve the quality of livestock. Glasslyn vets are at the forefront of developments in important areas of animal health such as bull fertility and vasectomy, cell checks, TB testing, pregnancy scanning, vaccination programmes, mastitis and lameness. We offer training days and informative talks to share our knowledge with the farming community and hold strong to the principle that prevention is always preferable to the cure.
With pets now taking pole position in many households, Glasslyn has opened a dedicated small animal clinic in Bandon. Joining the usual patient roll of cats, dogs and rabbits, recent visitors to the clinic include a barn owl and several hedgehogs! The small animal clinic offers a comprehensive range of treatments and diagnostic services to keep your pet in prime condition.
