Mobile Vet Clinic

Mobile Vet Clinic

The DSPCA mobile veterinary clinic offers affordable veterinary services for people in receipt of Social Welfare Payments. Our mobile vet clinic carries out routine health checks, vaccinations and microchipping. The initial health check is €25 which includes a vaccination. If your pet requires further treatment, blood tests or surgery after your visit to our mobile vet clinic, you will be referred to our shelter in Rathfarnham. Referrals to the shelter are by appointment only and a referral letter will be supplied.
