TEAM

OUR HIGHLY TRAINED COMPASSIONATE TEAM.

My Image
Manus Cannon
MVB MRCVS
PRINCIPAL

Following his graduation from UCD IN 1987 Manus spent 4 years in a mixed Veterinary practice in the UK before returning to Ireland in 1991. Since the establishment of Castle Vets in 1995 Manus has grown it into a large, modern practice by remaining true to his core principle of ensuring the highest levels of care for our patients. Key to his philosophy is a deep understanding of the relationship of our patients with their owners and families, having two children and a number of pets of his own. When not attending clients Manus is an avid sports fan.

TIPS

  • PRE OPERATIVE ADVISE

    Please follow the instructions below before bringing your animal down to us for its procedure;

    No food after 8 p.m. (20h00) the night before the operation

    Water is allowed up to leaving the house and coming to the clinic

    Please ensure your animal relieves itself before coming to the clinic

    Please arrive at the clinic no earlier than 8.30 a.m. (08h30)

    Please ring at lunchtime to get an update on your pet and time of discharge

    Your pet should normally be ready for collection between 4 p.m. (16h00) and 6 p.m. (18h00)

  • POST OPERATIVE ADVISE

    When your pet has had a general anaesthetic, it may take up to 24 hours to recover.

    Keep quiet, rested and indoors. Restrict exercise over the next few days.

    Offer a small amount of food and water, unless otherwise directed.

    Check the wound daily to make sure it is clean and dry. If it is bandaged, keep the bandage dry.

    Rebandaging carries a fee to cover the cost of dressings.

    If your pet interferes with the wound excessively by licking and scratching please use collar provided.

    Give any medication as prescribed.

    Make sure to keep your Follow up appointments.

    IF YOUR PET SHOWS ANY ABNORMAL SYMPTOMS OR YOU ARE WORRIED AT ALL, PLEASE CONTACT THE SURGERY.


  • PET PASSPORTS
    Traveling with a cat or dog is now much easier with the new EU pet passport. Check on the requirements here.
    Traveling with a cat or dog is now much easier with the new EU pet passport available from any Veterinary Clinic.
    All cats and dogs must have a passport containing details of a valid rabies vaccination.
    In order to obtain a Pet Passport the following steps must be adhered to.

    The animal must be micro chipped and the Micro chip number included on the Application Form for the Pet Passport.

    The animal must be vaccinated against Rabies, and at least 21 days elapse before travelling.

    As a measure to prevent Rabies entering Ireland or the UK, your pet could be subject to a 6 month Quarantine if the paperwork is not correct, a very expensive event and quite stressful to pets and owners alike.

    In addition, treatment for ticks and tapeworm is required for re-entry into Ireland. The timimg of the tick + tapeworm treatment is very important, in that it must be administered by a Vet between 24 to 48 hours before embarking.
    Boosters for the Rabies vaccination should be administered within the “valid until” date on the Pet Passport.
