About Village Vets
“Making lives better through excellence in veterinary care with our family of vets and nurses in each clinic.”
These days we are proud to be working with the best vets and nurses in Ireland across our state of the art clinics in Meath and Dublin. But one thing that hasn’t changed is knowing how important our team is to you, and understanding the important position your pets take within your family and also within our family.
Our unified brand, Village Vets, means we can provide an even more consistent and great value service to you across our clinics. As well as knowing that you will meet the same team every time you visit, you also have access to the new, larger support structure of the Village Vets team, including special benefits such as:
These improvements and the others that we will be rolling out mean that you can have complete peace of mind that we have the capability and resources there to support you when you need us most.
Pet Health Plan
Our Pet Health Plans are a great way to save money and ensure your pet gets best veterinary care all year round. Our plan is one of the only pet health plans that offer FREE Vet Visits for your pet!
Our Emergency Services
At Village Vets we understand that pets can become ill when we least expect it. That is why we provide an Emergency Vet Service 24/7 for all of our clinics, so you can rest assured that any time you call us, someone will be there on the other end of the line. We know how stressful emergency situations can be. Never hesitate to call us, or feel like you are bothering us with a trivial complaint; your pet's safety and welfare is our number one priority.
We are one of the few Emergency Vet Hospitals in Dublin & Meath that open on Sundays & Bank Holidays. Our Clonsilla and Dundrum Hospitals are open 7 days a week and will have access to all your medical records from any of our other practices. If your pet is on the Pet Health Plan, Sunday and Bank Holiday consultations are FREE (normal consult fee is €75).
To get through to our Emergency Vet out of hours, simply call your regular practice's number and you will be put through.
Village Vets Brands
Village Vets have a number of brands and websites we have created to provide our clients with all easily accessible information.
Remember: Think Adoption First!
Village Vets Campaigns
We are always trying to bring awareness to important issues regarding our favorite companions:
At Village Vets, we had an 'Operation Transformation' program that ran from January to March. Pet owners got their pet examined for weight free of cost during these months. If a pet was identified as being obese dietary advice was offered by one of the qualified vet nurses and provided with a diet chart to follow.
The biggest weight loser will win a year's supply of Royal Canin food (either dog or cat). It is worth mentioning here that last year it was Thinker, a 10 year old collie-cross that won the Operation Transformation weight loss contest. He lost over 3 kg within three months; this was possible due to the change in his diet that the Village Vets recommended.
Stenotic Nares in dogs
Some people think your dog's excessive snorting is an endearing part of his personality. Yet you know your pooch is a mouth-breather because their stenotic nares (aka their nasal passages or nostrils) are too narrow. Fortunately, his nasal issue can be fixed by surgery. But what's the price of freer breathing?
Stenotic nares or narrowed nostrils are a common problem in breeds with "smushed" faces such as the French Bulldog, English Bulldog, the Boston Terrier, the Pug, and the Pekingese. The flat faced or shorted nose breeds of dogs are known as 'branchycephalic' breeds.
Stenotic nares are genetic, caused by a malformation of the cartilage in the nose. Whilst many people perceive the squashed wrinkly faces of Pugs, French Bulldogs and other flat nosed breeds as ‘cute’ or appealing, in reality dogs with short muzzles can struggle to breathe, even when doing day-to-day activities such as walking or eating.
Free Senior Health Check
As our pets age, their diet, exercise and lifestyle requirements change. It is important that we, as owners, recognise when our pet is slowing down and make adjustments to suit their changing needs. For example, we see a lot of older pets with mobility problems, most often due to arthritis. In these cases, a medication plan is often put in place, but we also must redesign their nutrition and exercise plan, as this is just as essential in order to obtain an optimal weight. Weight loss helps to keep pressure off delicate joints as pets age, which enables them to enjoy a longer, happier and pain free life. Indeed, it is not only joints that get achy with age. Older animals often suffer with dental conditions, eye problems, and vital organs such as the heart, liver and kidneys may also become compromised. So last October and November we held "Golden Paws" months where one of our nurses would preformed a full nose to tail examination completely FREE if your dog was over 8 or cat over the age of 9 (normal consult cost is €45 or FREE with our Pet Health Plan).
We are very proud of our veterinary team, most of whom have been working with us for many years. Everyone of us understands and appreciates the love that you have for your pets.
We are very honored to be trusted by you to provide your pet with the best possible veterinary advice and care.
We look forward to meeting you soon.
