Dublin Veterinary Clinic

The Dublin Veterinary Clinic is a long established veterinary practice dating back to 1966 when it was converted from the Dublin Blacksmith Shop into a small Veterinary Clinic at 32 West Bridge Street. Our clinic is proudly listed on the Registry of Historic Places. Drs. Todd and Brigette Lightell, whom are husband and wife veterinarians, have owned the clinic since 2010.  They both have extensive experience in veterinary medicine and surgery, and are excited to take care of your family's pets. Along with the rest of our dedicated hospital staff, we provide compassionate and exceptional care for your pets in a caring, family atmosphere. In addition to caring for your furry friends such as cats and dogs, we also care for exotic pets such as rabbits, ferrets, reptiles, and pocket pets. We strive to give both you and your pets the personal attention that we feel you both deserve. We can't wait to meet you and take care of you and your family's pets!

Our Mission
The Dublin Veterinary Clinic has been owned by Drs. Todd and Brigette Lightell since 2010. We have created a clinic committed to excellence in animal care. Our continued goal is to deliver the highest quality of veterinary medicine and surgery to our patients. We are sensitive to the cares and concerns that each client brings to our practice for his or her pet.

Communications among staff members and clients is important and vital to our ability to provide consistent care, and emphasizes our team approach to the practice of excellent veterinary medicine. Our staff is here for our clients from the purchase of a new pet to saying goodbye to an old friend.

Our veterinarians and support staff provide preventive health care and treatment of disease problems to our broad-based clientele.

As we enter the next decade and the new millennium with ever increasing changes in veterinary medicine and surgery, we strive to provide high quality pet health and wellness services to assist your pet in living a longer, happier, and healthier life.
