NOTICE TO ALL CLIENTS REGARDING COVID-19:

In light of the easing of some restrictions being eased in the ACT, GVH and GCH has resumed in-person consults and allowed clients back into our buildings, with the following controls still in place:

  • One client per animal group booking is allowed; any additional family or household members will be asked to wait outside. 
  • We will be limiting the number of clients in our waiting area to a maximum of 5 at any given time. If you arrive and it looks like the waiting room is already at this capacity, please wait outside until clear to enter the building. 
  • We will still be taking cashless payments only – please ensure you bring a debit or credit card to your consultation. We do not accept cheque payments. 

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation throughout this uncertain and difficult time for all.

Gungahlin Veterinary Hospital

An update in response to our COVID-19 response:
As has been communicated previously, in recent weeks in line with the easing of some COVID-19 related restrictions in the ACT, we have transitioned back to seeing clients in the building; however the front door has remained locked and we have asked that clients call from outside when they arrive for their appointment so we can limit the number of people in the building. As of tomorrow (Friday 22 May) we will be unlocking our front door and welcoming clients back into the building, however the following controls will still remain in place:

- we continue to ask that only one person per animal or animal group visits the hospital, so we can limit the number of people in the building and in consults, and abide by social distancing.

- we will only be allowing a maximum of 5 people in the waiting room at any given time. If you arrive and it looks like the waiting room is already at this capacity, please wait outside until the number of people in the waiting room has reduced.

We appreciate your ongoing cooperation and understanding throughout these difficult and uncertain times. We look forward to easing these controls further as soon as circumstances allow.

Does this mean you’re doing routine vaccinations again?

Thank you - we appreciate the care you take of our Cody.

We are excited to announce that Gungahlin Cat Hospital has been accredited as a Gold level Cat Friendly Clinic under the International Society for Feline Medicine’s Cat Friendly Clinic Program! 🥳🥳😺😸

The program aims to promote well-being and high standards of care for all cats visiting or being hospitalised in a veterinary clinic. Under the program, a clinic has to prove rigorous adherence to a set of criteria which includes provision of facilities and demonstration of staff activities and attitudes aimed at reducing stress in cats, both as in-patients and out-patients. The criteria includes having separate dog and cat waiting areas, feline-friendly hospitalisation cages, and veterinary equipment specifically for treating cats. Most importantly, staff are encouraged to approach and handle cats sensitively and respectfully – all of our staff are trained in this area. Clinics are expected to maintain high standards of veterinary care, including continuing to update their knowledge of feline medicine as new knowledge becomes available.

GCH is proud to have achieved this internationally recognised accreditation at the highest level. Cat owners can find out more about the Cat Friendly Clinic initiative at www.catfriendlyclinic.org.
