Gilabbey Veterinary: Legacy & Partnership for Animal Care

A Dedicated Small Animal Practice

For over six decades, Gilabbey Veterinary Hospital in Cork, Ireland, has been a trusted provider of exceptional veterinary care for pets and their owners. Founded in 1957 by Mr. Liam Guerin, the hospital has built a reputation for its award-winning staff, commitment to continuing education, and unwavering dedication to the welfare of animals.

Facing Challenges and Making a Difficult Decision

Despite their efforts to maintain the highest standards of service and clinical care, Gilabbey Veterinary Hospital has been facing significant challenges. The building requires major renovations, resulting in limited facilities that have made it increasingly difficult to meet their high expectations. After careful consideration, the heartbreaking decision was made to permanently close the hospital’s doors on March 31, 2023.

Gilabbey Veterinary Hospital understands the importance of continuity of care for pets and has provided clear guidance to their clients during this transition period. Pet owners are advised to register with a new veterinary practice as soon as possible to ensure uninterrupted access to vaccinations, medications, and emergency services.
