Ready to get out there?

Summer is one of our favourite times of the year here at Village Vets, mainly because all that nice weather means we can get outside with our pets and enjoy the great outdoors!

If you're looking for some fun activities to take part in with your dog, we've got a range of awesome events going on throughout the summer and we'd love to see you at some of them - why not bring the whole family along and make it a proper day out? :)


Pets In The City 19.05.19

A FREE family day out for animal lovers brought to you by Dublin City Council and supported by the  DSPCA Dog Training.

Pet enthusiasts can expect a range of stalls offering great deals on all kinds of animal accessories, grooming products, toys and novelty items. A reptile corner and a small animal farm will give visitors the opportunity to interact with, and learn about, all kinds of animals.

Pets in the City is a fantastic day out and offers families the opportunity to bring their pets into the city for a fun and interactive event. Last year, over 5,000 pet lovers attended the activities on Smithfield Square.

Mini Marathon 03.06.19

Last year alone, the DSPCA helped over 5500 sick, injured or cruelly treated animals which included dogs, cats, equines, small animals, farm animals, reptiles and birds.This year they need to update and improve the Kennels used for the sickest dogs that come into their care. Money raised will go straight into upgrading these treatment kennels, and with the upgrade they will be able to create 10 extra kennels. Last year over 1,500 dogs passed through these kennels and we need your help to help us save more animals, so register today and help us to help more animals.

My Canine Companion Walk 04.08.19

On the 4th of August, Village Vets invite you to take part in a charity walk in support of My Canine Companion; an organisation which trains and provides dogs to families that have special needs, such as, but not limited to autism.

Despite the absolute necessary work that My Canine Companion does, they receive no Government aid and rely solely on the good-will, fund-raising and donations of the families affected.


To join Village Vets in support of this excellent cause, there is an entry fee of €15 which will go straight to My Canine Companion and insure a family and three dogs to take part in the event. Each dog there will also receive a complimentary bandana, water and dog treats upon arrival. Each participant will also receive €20 off their next visit to Village Vets and a €30 grooming voucher for use in any Groom Room in Equipet. Not only that, but everyone registered will be entered into a draw, of which the winner will receive 1 full year of a Pet Health Plan, valued at €300!


The walk will be taking place in Phoenix Park at 11 a.m on the 4th of August. The meeting place for the walk is the Dublin Zoo car park. The walk will loop through much of Phoenix Park's beautiful scenery, hopefully on one of the nicest days of the year.



We look forward to seeing you out there!
