  • Curragh Veterinary Supplies have now donated about 20kg of a range of bandaging materials for each of two successive years, to be used at ACE (Animal Care Egypt). This charity is based in Luxor in the Upper Nile region and treats many seriously injured working equids. The materials are top quality, gladly received and we've put them to good use.

  • Hi, I just wanted to say a big thank you to Declan for getting my order out to me promptly and going the extra mile to make sure I got the order by today. My horse was involved in a trailer accident and needed a supply of dressings quite urgently. To my surprise all the items I needed were in one place and at very reasonable prices. So once again many thanks Sally.
