About Us

Today, our practice is run by Hele and MJ, together with their caring, professional team of vets, nurses and reception staff. We strive to provide the highest quality of veterinary care to your pet so that they can live a longer, healthier and happier life.

Hele Vaughan MVB

Growing up in North Cork, where her father was a mixed practice vet, Hele quickly realised that Veterinary Medicine was also her calling. After graduating from UCD in 2011, she moved to North East England to work in a 24hr small animal hospital to further her knowledge and skillset.

In 2013, Hele decided to go further afield and headed to Canada to spend the next three years working in high-end small animal hospitals in the Toronto area. During the Summer of 2016, Hele and MJ returned home to Ireland to run Fox’s Veterinary Clinic and continue to serve the pet population of Finglas and the surrounding area with the same level of dedication, care and respect.

She is the proud owner of a precious cairn terrier, named Lexie, who is spoilt rotten and the boss of the house.

Michael-John Winters MVB MRCVS

Michael John grew up on a farm in county Leitrim and from an early age veterinary was his dream job. In June 2010 he graduated from UCD and the dream came true. His career started in Mayo in mixed practice. During his time in mixed practice he developed an interest in emergency medicine and surgery. After two years in Yorkshire and a post graduate training scheme with Vets Now he, Hele and their dog Lexie moved to Canada.

In Canada Michael John continued to enhance his emergency skills working in a 24 hour Emergency and Referral clinic in Toronto. In the summer of 2016 He along with Hele and Lexie headed for home and so they have arrived in Finglas in North Dublin. He is excited about the opportunity he now has before him to work with the pets and pet owners of Finglas and surrounding areas. When not busy in the clinic he can be found out cycling or at home on the farm.

A Tribute to Jimmy Fox Jimmy (James) Fox 1951-2016

Jimmy first set up a veterinary practice in Finglas in 1984 operating from a clinic on Clancy Road. In 1995 he relocated his practice to Drogheda Mall, in Finglas village. He spent 35 years of his life caring for animals (and people) in the Finglas and North County Dublin region.

Jimmy’s life was one of care for the animals he so respected and treated with dignity. He was one of the first veterinary practices in Ireland to introduce the principles of integrative care, by combining the use of homeopathic medicine.

His kindness, integrity and good humour was always present and touched so many lives in the Finglas area.

One of nature’s true gentlemen!
