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.

**** Some safety tips to keep your pets safe as hurricane Ophelia approaches ****

•Keep your animals indoors during bad weather, supply cats with litter trays and lead walk dogs outside to go to the toilet.
• Check that your animals are micro-chipped (details must be up to date) and that they are wearing an ID tag and collar.
• Ensure vaccinations are up to date, river water can increase the spread of disease, flood water may be contaminated.
• If you have animals usually kept outside, make sure they have a secure shelter, food and water at all times.
• If you have rabbit hutches outside bring them in to a shed or garage, strong winds may bring down trees, outdoor hutches are at risk of being hit by debris and of flooding.
