Funded by benefactors the hospital is practical recognition of their lifelong devotion to the relief of animal suffering. It is unique on the island of Ireland and continues the journey of compassion begun by our founders over 175 years ago. It’s continuity of care depends on the on-going financial support of friends who share our values. This can range from making a modest regular donation, organising a fund raising event, feeding a collection box or buying pet supplies from our well stocked hospital shop.
The hospital’s state of the art veterinary unit is always staffed by a qualified vet who is on duty from 9.00am to 7.00pm Monday to Saturday and 1.00pm-6.00pm on Sunday.The surgery offers a full range of veterinary services for companion animals and injured wildlife. Aside from the relief of suffering the vet will help keep your pet healthy by administering treatments that avoid contracting a range of diseases, they will neuter or spay avoiding unwanted litters and give advice on dietary issues such as obesity.
The USPCA was founded with the sole purpose of relieving suffering. Any companion animal whose welfare is compromised can be treated at the Hospital and the USPCA will cover the first £25 +vat for pain relief and to make the animal comfortable.
Injured native wildlife will also be treated by the USPCA at the Hospital.
