Blood Sampling

Blood Sampling

We are delighted to announce that we have purchased new state of the art blood machines.
These machines will allow us to have blood results in minutes, taking out the waiting time of using an external laboratory.
The benefits are endless
Better emergency and critical care
In-house testing takes the guesswork out of emergencies, so you can begin treatment right away. Plus, critical care cases frequently require extended monitoring
More information on sick patients’ conditions
Having our blood machines in house means we can have results in minutes which takes the waiting period out of making a diagnosis and treating.
Improved safety with pre-anesthetic testing for very ill and older pets.
We can now test very ill and older pets before any sedation or anaesthetic is given to ensure their bodies can withstand sedation.This procedure helps you avoid anesthetic or surgical complications
Less anxiety for owners
How many times have you endured several anxious days waiting for lab results.Pets are valued family members. The sooner you diagnose the problem, the sooner we can treat the patient and ease your concerns.
Easier monitoring of patients with certain conditions.
having the machines in house means we can keep a closer eye on patients with eg: diabetes or thyroid problems, these animals require regular monitoring to insure their condition is under control.
We look forward to sharing these top of the range machines with you

-​Dr Des Groome's motto .

“”My name is Des Groome, owner-founder of Groome Vets Ltd. I grew up on a stud farm in Carbury, co. Kildare surrounded by Mares, Foals, Racehorses, Cows, Dogs, Cats, Foxes, Rabbits and all God’s creatures. I think I was born to be a Vet and have worked with animals my entire life either on the farm as a stable groom, dog trainer, jockey, Vet. After an early veterinary career globe trotting and working with every species from racehorses to tigers, camels and parrots I established Kildare Vet Surgery in 1999 and built an accredited pet hospital here in 2005.

My guiding ethos as a Vet is to help animals live their best natural lives. There are 3 ways we do that which make us different from other practices- We focus on your animals lifestyle helping you understand your pet and their natural needs.
We focus on preventative healthcare for your pet.
And thirdly when your pet does become ill or elderly we focus on quality of Life issues before we do the usual array of scans and tests.
Our health plans are a life plan to keep your pet healthy. We are now developing daycare facilities, boarding kennels, a dog park, dog training service, pet fitness centre and our Groome Vet range of premium food. All these innovations are moving me closer to my life time aim of helping animals live their best natural lives. I have established also a sister company GymDog limited which will develop our Pet Gym service alongside Groome Vets to further improve pet’s lives by offering dog training, day care, fitness and therapy. This will make our hospital, resort and therapy centre for pets at South Green Road Kildare unique in Ireland.
I believe our mission of Helping Pets live their Best Lives is a unique statement in the Irish Veterinary Landscape

I recruit like minded people who’ve also grown up with animals and are here to support pet owners. “”
