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.

George is 9 year old Boston Terrier who was admitted to our Dun laoghaire hospital with recurrent vomiting and poor appetite. An abnormal abdominal ultrasound scan prompted Paul and the team to take George to surgery. It transpires George had eaten several feet of clingfilm(see above photo) that was covering food at Christmas. The cling film was stretching from his stomach to his mid small intestine. It was removed but had caused ulceration in the digestive tract that required several weeks of medication to correct.We are delighted to report George is back to his usual self and has fully got his appetite back.
