Established over forty years ago our veterinary practice has grown to one of the largest in Dublin with three centres Patrick Street in Dun Laoghaire, Kill Lane in Foxrock and Kilmacud Road in Stillorgan. Each premises is fully staffed and equipped as an individual hospital so that all veterinary attention can be performed without the need of patient transfers. The practice is open seven days a week 364 days per year. Standard equipment in each branch includes blood diagnostic machines, radiography suites and ultrasound scanners all of which are in daily use.
With an experienced team of vets, nurses and receptionists in each surgery we can offer continuity and consistency of treatment. There is a working partner in each hospital ensuring a practice ethos of trust between clients and staff. We pride ourselves on building relationships with pet owners and like to discuss the various options available in providing the most appropriate veterinary care for your pet. We understand the bond that exists between you and your pet. Our emphasis from early on when you get your pet is good advice and prevention of disease.
The practice offers an exceptional service with numerous free assessments to the pets of clients registered with the practice, new pet check ups, puppy parties, canine adolescent check ups, senior pet assessments and weight loss clinics. We provide free nutritional advice for pets and a range of pet foods on a highly competitive everyday low price policy, with loyalty reward schemes.
Our veterinary and nursing staff exceed all the continuing education requirements of the Irish Veterinary Council and our premises are certified inspected under their Practice Accreditation Scheme. Under our continuing process of upgrading our facilities our Kill Lane hospital was rebuilt and enlarged in 2009 to the highest internal specifications for the comfort of hospitalised pets.

Sally was rushed into our Kilmacud Clinic after getting hit by a car one morning. On arrival to the clinic she was in shock and a little collapsed.
She was hospitalised for treatment. Once she was stabilised x rays were taken. Although she had no fractures of any bones she did have some internal injuries which needed supportive therapy and close observation in the clinic. Thankfully she responded very well to treatment and even within 24hours she showed a dramatic improvement. She went home the following day and has now made a full recovery!
