We offer high quality referral srevices

We have a well established history of providing a referral service to other veterinary practices across Ireland. This means that we can manage and treat many more complex cases at the practice who require additional expertise, equipment and intensive care.

Many of our veterinary surgeons have additional qualifications and all staff undertake additional training in their special interest areas. Our nursing team provide 24 hour care to our in-patients, this is vital in the management of our more critical patients.

Along with this we are constantly upgrading and maintaining our equipment with the latest cutting edge technology. Cedar Grove is one of only a small number of practices providing these facilities.

We would like to provide the reassurance that when your pet is ill or injured, they will be in safe, well experienced hands that are respected and trusted throughout the veterinary profession.
