Santry Veterinary Surgery
Santry Veterinary Surgery was first opened in summer 2009 in response to client demand. It is located beside Autoglass and opposite Santry Stadium with plenty of adjacent parking. Santry Veterinary Surgery provides an excellent standard of care and has become an integral part of the Anicare Veterinary Group. Read More
Initially only open during afternoon hours, it is now open all day for both consultations and surgeries.Unlike our other four hospitals, the Santry branch is classified by the Veterinary Council as a surgery which means we are equipped for most surgical procedures and treatments but we do not have X-ray or ultrasound facilities on-site. Of course, if either service is required for your pet, we will gladly organise a referral to one of our other hospitals.
Santry Veterinary Surgery serves the districts of Dublin 9 and 11 and includes the areas of Santry, Beaumont, Swords, Coolock and Ballymun.
Michael is from a veterinary family – both his father and grandfather were veterinary surgeons. He qualified from UCD in 1983 and immediately immersed himself in small animal practice. With limited opportunities in Ireland at that time, he emigrated to the UK where he spent some time working in a small animal hospital.
His passion for travel took him further afield to Hong Kong where he initially worked in an established small animal practice and was subsequently involved in establishing what is now one of the biggest small animal hospitals in that country. Read More
Aside from his career, Michael is married to his wife Ann, has two sons, Robert and Harry, and a border terrier named Maggie. He thoroughly enjoys family time and watching his kids play for Na Fianna GAA and Clontarf Rugby Club, as well as walking Maggie. He still maintains a keen interest in travel, loves watching wildlife programs and visiting national parks.
