Working with you to provide effective and high quality treatment

We are committed to providing the highest level of care to our patients and also to their owners. Lucan veterinary hospital opened in 1980 and since then we have expanded our services and facilities to meet the ever-changing demands of veterinary pet care. You and your pets will be treated like family while receiving the best and most compassionate care that we can provide.


Our Treatments


Preventative medicine:

  • We offer a vaccination service which will protect your pet against many diseases and allow them to live a longer, healthier life. There are a number of Protocols which can be followed when it comes to vaccinations. Some vaccinations last for a number of years but some, such as Leptospirosis and kennel cough (dogs); Rhinotracheitis and calicivirus (cats), need to be given every year.
  • We also vaccinate for rabies under the pet passport scheme.
  • We offer a full range of preventive treatments for external and internal parasites.

Medical treatment:
We treat all domestic pets for all types of medical conditions neurology,cardiology,dermatology, respiratory, orthopaedic, reproductive, gastrointestinal or endocrine.


Preventive surgery
We perform spaying, neutering and lump removals.

Surgical emergencies
We perform many emergency surgeries from cuts and lacerations to emergency c – sections.We also perform a variety of specialized soft tissue and orthopedic surgeries.

To travel within the EU (and sometimes further afield) dogs and cats require a passport completed by a Qualified Veterinarian, and an up–to–date rabies vaccination. The Rabies vaccination must be given at least 30 days before travel. Vaccinations are current for 1 – 3 years depending on what vaccination is used. Your pet needs to be microchipped before a rabies vaccination can be given and a passport issued.

When you arrive in the clinic for your rabies vaccination and passport application you will be asked to fill in a form detailing your address (in Ireland) and personal details, along with the details of your pet – such as name, date of birth and breed. If you don’t know these exactly one of our team can help.

Travel with most carriers – either by air or by boat – requires a health check within 48 hours of travel. You can schedule an appointment by ringing the clinic.

Travel back to Ireland from another EU country requires tapeworm treatment administered by a vet within 48 hours of return. This is something that needs to be organised on your journey back home.

“Really very kind and friendly great respect for Dogs just the way she took him up, very professional. Would highly recommend this Lucan Vet.
Thank you.”

I had up to 26 cats at one stage, all patients at the LVH. Everything they ever needed was provided by the fab and caring team there. This is a top class professional group of carers. The 11 cats that remain have no intention of going elsewhere. Vets and nurses are 10/10.

“Really so professional and kind to my family’s pets over many years. It’s a genuine top notch group of skilled carers. You leave there…usually with good news….knowing that the nurses and vets genuinely have your animal’s welfare and comfort foremost in their priorities. I’ll be staying with Lucan Veterinary Hospital.”
