Jackie Layng | Village Vets

I grew up in Dublin and always had a passion for animal care. I was lucky to attend UCD where I spent enjoyable years studied Veterinary Medicine. 

I gained my initial experience in the UK where I worked for two years before coming back to Ireland for seven years. I went on to study and complete my Certificate in Small Animal Medicine at this stage. Back in Ireland, I worked in Equine practice and in a number of Small Animal practices in Dublin & Meath to gain experience in different clinics with contrasting case loads. I then headed back to the UK for afew years and this is where I completed my Advanced Certificate in Small Animal Surgery. The lure of home brought me back here last year and I started working in Cabra Veterinary Clinic as their Orthopedic surgeon. Here, I join a team of several other vets & four nurses. I spend alot of time in surgery performing orthopedic procedures from our other clinics in Village Vets and I also see referrals from other vets. 

My two dogs, Cara & Susie accompany me to work every day. Outside of work, I enjoy horse riding and sailing.
