Welcome To German Veterinary Clinic

About German Veterinary Clinic

GVC was established by Dr Katrin in 2008 and was the very first veterinary clinic in Khalifa City A. We have known many of our clients and patients for close to 10 years and have always held the reputation of being a top quality, dependable and caring service provider.

We see ourselves as an integral part of the community and are, as such, committed to providing initiatives and support to our neighbouring residential developments and many of Abu Dhabi’s groups and platforms.

We are proud to say that we are the Middle East’s first Cat Friendly Clinic (although we love and treat dogs and all other species of small animals too!), and as such have demonstrated that we are constantly striving to broaden our horizons, come up with new innovations and better ways to serve you and your pets and to remain at the cutting edge of our profession and industry.

The professional development of our team is very important to us and we are as such continuously investing in and attending courses and seminars relating to various aspects of our business and profession to further ourselves so we can provide you with the very best.

So, what sets GVC apart from other Veterinary Clinics?

It’s simple really… We absolutely love what we do and are 100 % committed to providing you and your pets with the highest standards of “Quality Care”.
Everything we do is driven by our love and passion for providing the best possible care for our patients and their human families.

We at GVC all have our own pets and know that each is an individual with its own personality and quirks. This is therefore how we treat all of our patients – as individuals who deserve our undivided one on one attention.
