The Society began to operate a Voluntary Veterinary Clinic in Drumcondra in the 1970’s, originally in a series of rented garages.
Our last ‘Garage’ Clinic was at the rear of a house on Clonturk Park in 1987.
Today, the Clinic still remains the main focus of our work. We now operate in our own premises at 124a Upper Drumcondra Road (Opposite the Dublin Skylon Hotel) on two evenings each week.
People walk into our clinic with their sick and injured small animals. We provide:
- Veterinary Health Checks on dogs, cats, puppies and kittens and other small animals and domestic birds. We ask for a donation of €20 towards this service. There may be an additional cost for medication.
- Annual Vaccinations for cats and dogs.
- Puppies – first vaccination 8-12 weeks – Distemper, Lepto, Parva – €35
- Kittens – first vaccination 9-12 weeks – Cat flu, Feline Enteritis, Feline Leukaemia Vaccine (optional – cats only) – €35
- Cats should be vaccinated annually against Cat Flu and Feline Enteritis – €35
- Dogs should be vaccinated annually against Distemper, Lepto Parva – €35
- Kennel Cough Vaccine (dogs only) – €35
- Microchipping for Dogs and Cats
- Since April 2016, microchipping is compulsory for all dogs in Ireland. You can gave your animal microchipped in our clinic. You must bring with you: Photographic Identification (passport or driving licence) and a recent utility bill as proof of address. The cost is €25 per animal.
- Subsidised Neutering scheme for cats and dogs.
- Referral to Private Veterinary Practices, where required
- First Aid for injured wildlife
Our clinic is run by voluntary people who strive to provide a professional caring service to the best of our ability.
Because of our short opening hours, this service is necessarily restricted. Our veterinary surgeons will refer you and your pet to private veterinary practices for more specialised treatment or emergency services out of hours.
We regret that it is not possible to allow public parking on the clinic premises.
