Dr Sophia Mackey

BSc (Hons) DVM MRCVS

Growing up with plenty of pets from cats, dogs, guinea pigs and rabbits to horses, Sophia developed a great love for all animals – great and small. When her local vet would visit to tend to the horses she realised she wanted to do the same and began to follow her passion into veterinary medicine.

Sophia studied for a degree in Pharmaceutical Chemistry and then moved to Budapest, Hungary to qualify in Veterinary Medicine. Once she had graduated, Sophia spent time in her home country of Ireland in a mixed practice and then took on a Companion Animal Surgical Internship at a Referral Hospital in Cork. A warm, smiley and compassionate Vet, Sophia has already made a great impact at Blacks – we love having her on board.

In her spare time Sophia loves to spend time with her pug, Izzy or ride her stallion Magnum – she even used to compete and represent Ireland in dressage!
