Chanelle Veterinary - founded 1983
Michael Burke’s experience as a Veterinary Surgeon provided the company in its “start up” phase with insight knowledge into what was required to improve the level of service in the Irish veterinary market. A “24 hour” delivery service was introduced, which most distributors have since emulated. Following the company’s initial success in distribution to the veterinary market, a manufacturing operation was established. Chanelle Veterinary is now ranked as one of Ireland’s leading wholesalers.
Chanelle Veterinary stocks over 5,000 product ranges dispatches 95,000 parcels and 1,200 pallets a year to Vets, Merchants and Co-ops throughout Ireland from a brand new purpose built 50,000 sq ft warehouse.
The Irish market is serviced by:
