We Share Your Passion for Cats
“Our vision is to allow dogs and cats to go through the patient journey in the most stress free manner possible thus we are now providing them with their own dedicated waiting area’s and hospitals. We have built a totally self contained cat hospital upstairs in our Dun Laoghaire clinic so all feline surgeries and care will take place here and the existing hospital downstairs will look after our dog patients.”

The vets currently working at Ark ( we see Lisa Claire and Paul) are continuing the great tradition of expertise and kindness established by the founders of the practice Paddy Treanor and Kevin Glyn Have had every confidence in this veterinary centre for over 20 years. The nursing and reception staff who run the place are also due sincere thanks . Candidaread more
For the last 10 years, my pets have all been exceptionally well looked after by the team at Ark Vetcare. They are absolutely brilliant, and I have no idea how they have managed to assemble a team made up of such experienced, kind and passionate people - everyone I have ever come into contact with at the Dun Laoghaire branch over the years has been wonderful. The veterinary care my pets have received from Paul and the wider team has been second to none, and the cat boarding facilities are top class. The specialist equipment they have in the practice is incredible, and the fact that the only they close as a group is Christmas day, gives me huge peace of mind as a pet owner. I would wholeheartedly recommend Ark Vetcare, and am so grateful for work they do.read more
To edit this review ...three years later and although we now live in Donegal we still use ark dun laoghaire as we trust them completely with the care they deliver to Tory. She is in very safe hands and they are so gentle with her has she's a drama queen like her mum and they are so nice to both of us. Could not recommend ark dun laoghaire enough.read more
I can't recommend Ark Vetcare enough! Each and every one of the team are exceptional and it is readily apparent how passionate they are in caring for the animals. Unfortunately our dog was critically ill recently, and we couldn't have got through it without the support and care from Paul and the team. They went above and beyond the call of duty to care for not only our dog but, also us as owners during an extremely difficult time. Thankfully, he has made a great recovery which is without a doubt due to the meticulous care provided to him. Their passion and love for the animals they care for is obvious as all of the Ark team ask how he is getting on whenever we call or need to pop down to pick something up! Although Dun Laoghaire would be our main practice, we always feel extremely welcome and very well looked after in the Foxrock practice when we visit there. The exceptional care we have received is not only isolated to this one event, as they have taken excellent care of our dog for the past 5years. I trust them completely. I have found all of the staff to be extremely helpful and kind, answering all of our questions no matter how senseless they seem!read more
Such a fantastic vetinary. I take my dogs to see Paul Mc Carthy and he is so good with them. They say if only dogs can talk. Well if mine could they would be singing the praises of Ark Vet Care Dun Laoghaire and all the wonderful staff there that go above and beyond the call of duty.Thank you for everything and for all your help with getting my dogs sorted through out the years.read more
The staff here go above and beyond with their care. I have been going to them for the past 11 years, even after moving away from the area. I had to get my dog put down a few months ago and I couldn't overestimate the compassion and genuine warmth I received throughout her sudden illness and death. They cared for my dog as if she were one of their own and the kindness I received won't be forgotten! I can't recommend Ark Vetcare Dun Laoghaire more highly xread more
In the last year the wonderful professionals at Ark Vetcare twice provided emergency treatment to our dog, just when they should have been going home, and on both occasions saved his life after working on him for over two hours. They had no hesitation in providing treatment despite the late hour he presented at. And now when we had to face the awful decision of what to do when he presented with a terminal illness the team were so kind, considerate, understanding and comforting helping us to decide what to do and helping us through that traumatic time with great compassion, concern and sensitivity. We are so grateful to vets Claire and Paul, the nurses especially Carol who knew our dog since he went to puppy classes with her and to all the other staff at Ark Vetcare Dun Laoghaire, particularly Julie on the desk, for all their help and support.D&Gread more
The folks at Ark Vetcare are truly wonderful. My cat unexpectedly developed Pancreatitis during the October long week-end. We took her to Ark Vetcare Foxrock, where she received excellent care. Over the next two months Abbie was a regular patient, requiring surgery for a septic abdominal infection and constant monitoring. I cannot express how wonderful the staff and vets have been, especially Ravna Lange and Fiona Reardon who were her primary vets. I am truly grateful to Ark Vetcare for saving her life when all had seemed without hope.read more
I have been bringing my dogs here for a number of years and the staff have always been amazing in dealing with the routine stuff as well as the not so routine and emergencies. From the minute you walk in the door, they are very helpful and friendly (especially Mairead, she is a great asset to the practice). Would highly recommend them and so would the dogs (even the dog who is a Hypochondriac doesn't mind going)!!read more
