Blanchardstown Veterinary Hospital first opened its doors in 2006 and has grown to become an important veterinary health care provider in Dublin. The hospital was developed in an existing building which was extensively redesigned and renovated. The result is a modern, welcoming environment where every aspect has been carefully planned to meet your pet’s needs. Located just off the Main Street in Blanchardstown Village (opposite Ryan’s Garage), it is easily accessible for all pet owners from Blanchardstown, Castleknock, Clonsilla, Mulhuddart, Tyrrelstown, Clonee and the surrounding areas. Because of its close proximity to the M50, the team also frequently works with clients from all parts of Dublin and some from as far afield as Wicklow and Cavan. There is plenty of on-site parking for our clients which helps to minimise stress for both owners and their pets.
We appreciate that continuity of care is important and as such, have assembled a close-knit team to care for your pets. Fintan Browne is the head veterinary surgeon and generally consults and operates on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Fintan has been with Anicare Veterinary Group since 1998 and has been involved with the Blanchardstown branch since the design and planning stage before it even opened. Blanchardstown native Clodagh ODea works alongside Fintan on most days. When Fintan or Clodagh are unavailable, one of the other Anicare vets (normally Zara Cummins) will be on duty. Additionally, our state of the art computerised practice management system allows each staff member complete access to a patient’s history which facilitates easy communication among our vets
Our team of veterinary nurses helps to keep the practice running smoothly. Stephanie, Victoria and Erin are on first name terms with most of our clients and are intimately familiar with the many pets that come through our door. This level of personal service and attention is important, not just for client satisfaction, but as a central part of providing genuine and compassionate care to our patients as well.
Our facilities in Blanchardstown include a large waiting room/reception area, two bright consulting rooms, modern comfortable kennels with stainless steel cages, a large surgery prep area and theatre, X-ray facilities, ultrasonography, isoflurane gas anaesthesia (which is safe for all patients, particularly geriatric animals and exotics) and an in-house laboratory. We also work with UCD’s veterinary laboratories in Belfield for laboratory tests that cannot be run in-house and the excellent courier service we use means that most of our lab test results are available later the same day.
Consultant Veterinary Radiologist Emma Tobin visits the hospital weekly to perform advanced ultrasonography examinations.
