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.

🐈🐈🐈Happy International cat day 🐈🐈🐈

Today is a day to celebrate all things cats,our beautiful four-legged purrfect pets with all of their quirky ways.

Some cat facts that you may not have known about these wonderful animals :
🐱A cat's nose is ridged with a unique pattern, just like a human fingerprint
🐱A group of cats is called a clowder
🐱Cats have powerful night vision, allowing them to see at light levels six times lower than what a human needs in order to see
🐱Cats can be lefties and righties, just like us. More than forty percent of them are, leaving some ambidextrous
🐱Cats are the mammals with the largest eyes.

All our cat owners out there please send us in your pictures by messenger and we'll make a video to celebrate all of the cuties 💕🐱💕

Below is the handsome duo Harry and Neville owned by our lovely vet Lisa 😍
