A long tradition of pet care in Limerick City
Henry Street Vets was established in late 2018, continuing the fine work of John O’ Dwyer Small Animal Hospital. There is a long-standing history of a small animal vet at 22 Henry Street with John O’Dwyer MVB starting there in 1986, and his partners being there for many years before him. We are excited at Rockhall Veterinary to be continuing this fine tradition at Henry Street Vets.
We are delighted that John O Dwyer MVB is staying with us for a transition period, and that his excellent team Naomi, Aoife, Laura and Neansai will be remaining with us.
