Gilabbey Veterinary Hospital welcomes you

A dedicated Small Animal Veterinary Referral Practice based at
Vicars Road, Togher, Cork, Ireland.

Gilabbey Veterinary Hospital was founded in 1957 by Mr. Liam Guerin. Our award winning staff are committed to providing the highest level of care to their patients and owners. We endeavour to provide our patients with first class veterinary care, along with having a friendly approachable, honest, sympathetic and respectful manner. The welfare of our pets is always our foremost thought.

We provide this by investing and believing in our team. Our veterinary surgeons have national and international reputations. Our staff invest heavily in continuing education as well as offering continual education to other members of the veterinary profession, in order that we may keep right up to date in our fields of expertise.

Our philosophy motivates continual improvement by learning, sharing and growing, both as individuals and as a team.

We can be distinguished from our competition as all our clients benefit from the fact that we are a referral veterinary hospital. Our standards are never compromised, as we aim to treat our patients as though they were our own pets.

Gilabbey Veterinary Hospital was recently featured in RTE’s The Pet Surgeons where the cameras rolled for about six months. The six part series showcased the many aspects of the hospital and followed some very interesting cases. Some of the promotional videos can be viewed to the right.

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 September is Animal pain awareness month

🐱It's very important to be aware of common signs of pain so that you can identify if your pet is showing any of them and respond accordingly.
🐶The International Veterinary Academy of Pain Management (IVAPM) have made this poster below which is really helpful at showing you what you should be watching out for in your pets.
🐱You can also check out there website below, which has a great list of the common signs:
🐶In Gilabbey we are very lucky that we have two brilliant veterinarians who can help with their vast knowledge when it comes to pain management, Lisa and Sophia.
⭐Lisa has completed a post graduate diploma in analgesia and anaesthesia and is currently doing finishing her Masters within this topic.
⭐Sophia has trained in and can provide acupuncture.
With pain management (especially chronic), a combination of pain relief medication and acupuncture can work really well.

⚠️⚠️Age is not a disease, but pain is⚠️⚠️

🌟🌟🌟🌟UPDATE 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Happy news:
Holly has been found and is back home getting lots of love and cuddles from her family

The lovely Holly is missing from Ballinhassig since Monday morning. She is chipped but not wearing her tag. She’s very friendly but very old and slow and it’s very unlike her to stray. Her owners are really worried about her. If people can please share this post and spread the word, somebody out there may have seen her since then 😢😢
