Hill Veterinary Hospital was founded 25 years ago by Mike and Deirdre Woods .
Mike is the Principal Veterinary Surgeon who holds a certificate in veterinary ophthalmology and offers a referral ophthalmology service nationwide and
Deirdre is the Practice Manager. Having started in practice in the west of
Ireland in 1984 Mike moved to the UK in 1986 and worked mainly in the west of
England . Whilst there he
studied for his certificate in veterinary ophthalmology gaining valuable
experience and expertise. In 1994 Mike
and Deirdre returned to Ireland and set up Primrose Hill Veterinary Hospital .
The practice was on Tivoli Road for 25 years and moved to its new premises in
Church Place Sallynoggin in June 2019 after a 16 year search! Many roads were
travelled on the quest until finally Church Place was happened upon. There
began the next chapter in the story of Primrose Hill Veterinary Hospital. It
took 3 years to weave through the bureaucracy that is the planning process,
building regulations, design and fitting out process. Our team is proud to
present our beautiful new hospital.
Those of you who have recently found us, we would like to extend a very warm welcome. We hope you and your pet find what you are looking for here at Primrose Hill. Our new facility is many times bigger than our original location on Tivoli Road. We now have three consulting rooms, extensive laboratory facilities, X-ray suite, two operating theatres, one of which is a dedicated Ophthalmology theatre . You may or may not be aware that we are also a centre of excellence in the field of Ophthalmology, with clients referred to us from all over Ireland. Daily, we perform delicate high-tech procedures such as cataract removal and lens implants thus restoring precious sight to many blind animals. In our air-conditioned reception area we provide spacious and comfortable seating, also a dedicated cat ‘Snug’, should you wish to wait apart from the main waiting area. We can also provide a separate cat consulting room. Our state-of-the-art hospital area offers separate wards for cats and dogs and we use cat calming pheromones when possible. We have a highly skilled, highly qualified team of Veterinary Healthcare Professionals in every area of our hospital. We are committed to providing your pet with the most up-to-date treatments and are always keen to explore the latest developments within our profession.
