Mixed Practice:             53 Members

Vetsave is managed by Michael Holohan who has over 30 year’s experience in veterinary procurement, wholesaling and distribution in Ireland. From his experience one of the primary challenges many practices have is calculating the true cost of a veterinary products based on the complexities of company rebates and wholesale discounts. It follows therefore, that membership of Vetsave can significantly minimise such challenges.
