Our Founder

Our founder Denis Twomey worked in the animal nutritional industry for over 30 years. Denis has had a lifelong love of animals and over the years Denis and his family have owned horses, cats, dogs, chickens, sheep and cattle.

Working in the animal nutritional industry and with a passion for obtaining optimal health in animals, he saw first-hand the difference high quality nutritional solutions can make to the health and performance of animals, in particular horses, cats and dogs. Denis genuinely loves animals and wants to see them healthy, happy and full of life.

Denis’s devotion to growing people’s knowledge of animal nutrition and its benefits to the health and happiness of animals drove him to set up Briovet.com. A small online store, born out of a big dream. This is a family business with a passion for animal health and family values at its heart.

A Bit About Denis

Denis loves to don his boots and walk his Irish Red Setter “Rua” everyday in the fields around Cork in the South of Ireland.

He regularly takes his Grandchildren for walks and adventures in the countryside, so they have opportunities to see local wildlife and a whole new world of wonder that animals can open up for them.  Denis believes that seeing animals in nature is a wonderful way of nurturing the next generations love of animals for life.
