Gungahlin Veterinary Hospital is one of the premier veterinary practices in the ACT, with a team of experienced and highly trained veterinarians, caring, trained veterinary nurses, dedicated receptionists and support staff. We work from a purpose built hospital (the newest in the ACT – opened December 2002), equipped with a full complement of equipment for diagnosis and surgery of most small animal problems.
We are an Accredited Hospital of Excellence. Until November 2014, the only registered small animal veterinary specialists in South East NSW were based in our hospital. We are open from 8 am to 7 pm week days (and 8.30 am to 4 pm Saturdays) and provide disabled access, to make it easy for you to visit us.
Training, experience and equipment are nothing without care. Our staff are animal lovers and owners who understand the joys of pet ownership, the worry when they are unwell, and the grief when they are lost. We care for your pet with compassion as well as professionalism, and for you with empathy and respect. When it comes to the crunch, we put your pet first.
We practice evidence-based medicine – we recommend and treat your pet using the latest information from peer-reviewed journals, conferences and seminars, choosing the treatments for which there is strong evidence. We’ll share this information with you, as well as discussing alternatives and side effects of therapy.
We practice preventative medicine – from your very first visit we’ll be recommending simple strategies to help your pet live a longer and more comfortable life, and for it to be a confident, relaxed, compliant and trustworthy member of your family and of the community.
This website is designed to tell you a little about ourselves and our services, and to help you to make well informed decisions about your pet’s care. Read on, and feel free to contact us for clarification or to make an appointment to discuss in more detail.
