We could not do what we do without the help of generous donors, from collection boxes to raffles and auctions, to cash donations. All proceeds are expended into the practice, by procuring additional equipment and maintaining the building. In the last two years we’ve invested in excess of €50,000 in building upgrades; installing new state of the art equipment, including an Idexx Haematology and Biochemistry machine. In addition, our charity fundraising affords ongoing training for our dedicated staff.
We provide a wide range of services including: preventative care, emergency care, surgery, diabetes care through specialised clinics, sale of prescription foods, an extensive range of vaccinations including Rabies, and we are authorised by the DAFM to supply Pet Passports.
