Our Team

Dennis Ennis Vet Clinic Team

Dennis Ryan BVMS

Dennis qualified from the University of Glasgow in 2005 and started work in London where he worked in a small animal only hospital until 2009. From 2009-10 he locumed in the UK and Ireland before taking up a full time position as head small animal vet in a Kildare practice from 2010-12.

His main veterinary interests are small animal medicine, soft tissue surgery and diagnostic imaging. In his spare time he enjoys cycling, walking and spending time with his family.

Meghan Ryan BVMSUntitled design (3)

Meghan also qualified from the University of Glasgow, in 2002, which is where she and Dennis met. It was many years before the decision to open a clinic together was made however, and in this time Meghan worked in small animal hospitals in the UK, as well as the USA and Canada. Meghan’s love of veterinary medicine stems from early childhood when she developed a passion for caring for animals. Meghan has an interest in veterinary dentistry in addition to veterinary nutrition. She finds it hugely rewarding to see a patient develop a new lease for life after dental treatment and her desire is for every pet owner to brush their dog or cat’s teeth daily!

Meghan and Dennis have three small children who are often seen ‘helping’ out in the clinic at the weekend, all who seem to be developing a familial love of animals. They have two cats, Ted and Dougal, who came from the UK back in 2008. At over 6kg each they are gentle giants, but they have rather naughty habit of running off with food stolen from the kitchen, which necessitates a lifelong diet!
