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.

🐶🐶Dogs eat the strangest things🐶🐶

We had a patient in recently who had been up to a lot of mischief at home 😱😱
This doggy had been stealing socks and underwear when his owner wasn’t watching 😦 Luckily the items were seen on radiographs and the pup had the items removed under general anaesthetic 😊
