Puppies, Kittens and young Rabbits

Rabbit - Pets at Cashman and O'Driscoll Vets, Glanmire, Cork

A routine health check is recommended at six weeks of age. For most pets this involves a clinical examination and general health check which is recorded in detail.

We will explain on this visit what routine vaccinations and worming programmes are needed for your pet.

Puppy Parties

Boxer Pup - Pets at Cashman and O'Driscoll Vets, Glanmire, Cork

A well-socialised dog reduces many of the 'problem' dog behaviours you read about. Once vaccinated, you can bring your puppy along to our Puppy Parties. These are held once each week for four weeks in the afternoons and will introduce your dog to 'dog etiquette', which helps to train your dog into good behaviour habits. Ask the vet during vaccination or book a place for your puppy at reception.

Older Pets Different breeds and ages have different healthcare needs. You can increase the lifespan and quality of life of your pet by monitoring to prevent or delay many of the old age problems associated with teeth, heart, joints, kidney and tumours. Our computerised system can record each patient's need for check-ups, health monitoring or medication. We can send reminders by text, e-mail or post, whichever you prefer.

How can we help you?

We are always happy to advise you about all aspects of your pets' needs. When you visit, be sure to raise any concerns you have about your pet's health and behaviour.

We make every effort to create an environment that is professional yet friendly, and we understand the special bond between you and your pet.
