Why Choose Us

What makes us so different? Why Choose Us? All employees of Cara Vet Group have strict guiding principles which we all adhere to. It is the little things that make the difference:

  • Cara - Did you know that the word ‘Cara’ in Irish means friend? That is why we call ourselves the Cara Vet Group, because all animals are our friends. We really care about all our furry friends that you bring into us. Being pet owners ourselves, we know how much your pet means to you.
  • State-of-the-Art Medical & Surgical Facilities - Not only are we accredited as a Registered Veterinary Hospital, (which means that we have all necessary equipment and resources on-site), but we have gone the extra mile to provide our clients and patients with a very modern, state-of-the-art medical and surgical facility. Our clients often comment on how this gives them peace of mind that their pet is in fantastic hands while in our care.
  • All creatures great and small - Dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, reptiles, rodents, frogs and fish… You name it, we treat it. We care about all species and treat them all with respect and care.
  • Complimentary Services - We provide various free services to help provide an affordable method of ensuring the wellbeing and health of your pet is maintained.
  • Free Parking Facilities - We provide free parking for our clients at the Cara Veterinary Hospital in Ballycoolin and the Cara Veterinary Clinic on the North Circular Road.
