Emergencies Near Dundrum

The Dundrum area is packed with great places to go walking – Bushy Park, Deer Park, Marley Park and Ticknock to name but a few!

Unfortunately, when we’re out and about our dog’s can get themselves into all sorts of scrapes, falls and emergencies. Not too long ago we had a poor fella injure himself just chewing away on a nice stick so, these things do happen from time to time.

If an accident happens here’s a few simple steps you can follow:

  1. Act Immediately
    • Call us.
    • Do not wait, this will only prolong your pet’s suffering and may compromise their health.
  2. Although it can be difficult, try to keep calm and give a clear account of the emergency.
  3. Follow the advice given.
  4. Try not to worry.

Vaccines for Puppies

If you got a new puppy over Christmas, they might be starting to venture out on their first walks. It’s very important that you make sure they have the correct vaccinations so that they won’t pick up any nasty infections. Last year there was an outbreak of Parvovirus in Limerick and six dog were unfortunately killed which highlights the importance of vaccinations.

Wondering what we vaccinate against? The core vaccines protect against the following viruses:

  • Caine Parvovirus (CPV).
  • Caine Leptospirosis.
  • Caine Cough.
  • Distemper Hepatitis and Canine Parainfluenza Virus (CPi).
