Expert Pet Care
The Animal Care Hospital in Douglas, Cork is an award winning small animal Veterinary Hospital providing high quality care for your pet. We are situated adjacent to the Fingerpost Roundabout in Douglas Co. Cork. We are now celebrating over 20 years of professional vet care to Cork’s small animals.
Our caring staff consists of four very experienced vets, three qualified veterinary nurses and one highly trained receptionist. Our patients are predominantly dogs, cats and rabbits, but we also treat many other small animals including guinea pigs, rodents, birds and reptiles.
For January, we are running a special offer on Hills’ prescription Diet Metabolic canine and feline products. Buy 3 and get 1 free. If you have any questions about your pets diet, please call us and we can help on 021 489 3033. We also have some helpful tips in our blog on how to ensure your pet has the right nutrition.
We know sometimes it can be stressful for your pet to come to the vet and we want to change that. We are part of a new initiative designed to ease the stress, fear, and anxiety so many pets experience while at the vet. Known as Fear Free, this training and certification program helps veterinarians modify their procedures, handling, and facilities to help pets feel safe and comfortable while receiving the medical care they need.
We were the first Animal Hospital in Ireland to have a fear free certified veterinarian. This is part of our commitment to you and your pet – we will do our absolute best to make your pet feel as comfortable as possible during consults.
“Rocky used to panic at the vets. He got scared easily and didn’t want to walk into the consult room.
Our vet Orlaith started by doing consults in the waiting room where she suspected his panic was being exacerbated by a painful condition.
Now with his pain under control and some pre visit anti anxiety medications he enjoyed his vaccination consult this week. 😁
Fear free techniques and pain management are so important for our gorgeous pet friends.”
We also receive referrals from other veterinary practices including surgical (orthopaedic and soft tissue) and medical cases.
“Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Always greeted by a smile when you walk in the door. They have been so patient and professional with all my little feral cats that I have taken there to be neutered. Highly recommend”
