Dublin Veterinary Clinic

The Dublin Veterinary Clinic is a long established animal hospital dating back to 1966 when it was converted from the Dublin Blacksmith Shop into a small veterinary clinic at 32 West Bridge Street. Our animal clinic is proudly listed on the Registry of Historic Places.  Drs. Todd and Brigette Lightell, whom are husband and wife veterinarians, have owned the animal hospital since 2010.  Along with our Associates, all doctors have extensive experience in veterinary medicine and surgery. Our dedicated hospital team provides 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 are excited to meet you, and take care of you and your family's pets!
