Sally Mullan

Veterinary Surgeon


Read Sally Mullan bio

Sally graduated from the University of Liverpool in 1998. Starting her career as a Mixed Animal Vet in North Yorkshire, Sally soon gravitated toward Small Animal Practice, allowing her to focus on providing exceptional care for companion pets. 

Sally decided to make the move to Northern Ireland with her family, and we are delighted to have her join our team at Vets4Pets Newtownards, where she looks forward to getting to know our fantastic clients and their pets alike! Sally enjoys a wide range of medicine and surgery, and has a keen interest in progressing her ultrasound skills.

In her free time, Sally enjoys getting to spend quality time with her family and her own pets, including her cheeky ex-racehorse Frankie.

We hope you will enjoy getting to know Sally as much as we have!
