About Us

Fitzpatrick Referrals was founded in 2005 by Noel Fitzpatrick whose vision was to create an environment where it would be truly possible to marry compassionate care with excellence in veterinary medicine.

A place which would allow the exchange of ideas rapidly and efficiently between human and animal medicine for the benefit of all. A place where it would be possible to push the boundaries of veterinary medicine to allow animals to regain pain free functional quality of life.
