The vision

Veterinary Specialists Ireland was founded by Laura Cuddy and Turlough Mc Nally in 2019 to provide exemplary advanced specialist care to small animals on the island of Ireland

The foundation

Laura and Turlough graduated from University College Dublin in 2008 and underwent 5 years further rigorous training in some of the largest and most advanced hospitals in the United States

The idea

The call of home meant a return to Ireland in 2013, but nothing quite compared to their experiences in the United States

So they decided to build their own private specialty small animal hospital in Summerhill, Co. Meath

The family

Like an episode of Grand Designs, they added a two human babies to their Weimaraner family in the midst of the project…

The present

The family was delighted to open the doors of the state-of-the-art 8,000 sq ft hospital in June 2019

The old adage ‘build it and they will come’ proved true, and our hospital family expanded exponentially

The recent addition of emergency and critical care and internal medicine services means we are the only small animal hospital in Ireland that can cater for any type of acute or chronic injury or illness, under the direction of a Specialist, 24–7–365

Our internationally renowned Specialists participate in residency training and research programmes, and continued professional development workshops for our referring veterinary professionals, with the ultimate goal of advancing high quality and compassionate health care for pets in Ireland

The future

Our family look forward to expansion of our specialist services to include sub-specialties of our main disciplines

We are continuing to invest heavily and collaborating with our international colleagues and practices to ensure your pet has access to the latest technologies and procedures
