Our Testimonials

  • I found abandoned kittens and took them to German Vet for a check up. It was very close to their closing time and they were extremely busy but they still gave me time and showed me how to take care of the kittens. The staff was very polite and caring towards the kittens. Thank you for helping the kittens (and me) out!

  • We are not sure how we will ever get over losing our beloved Jack Russell, but Dr Vito and his team were exemplary in their medical care, professionalism and compassion. We will never forget the support that they gave us and our dog!

  • Just got my Kitties back after their Sterilization today with GVC. Thank you to everyone involved who took amazing care of my precious Blackie and Brownie. I am amazed with how 100% alert they both are, you would never know they had surgery today, thank you so much for taking such great care of them 🙂

  • It’s boxes and bags in the apartment, boxes and bags in the car, but the one thing that has caused me no stress at all is Duke’s trip to the GVC team in Abu Dhabi.

    He’s had major dental work plus a hair cut and all over checkup and he is the happiest little man. The GVC team are magic. They checked him in, made a fuss, looked after him every step of the way and kept me updated! They truly gave me confidence that this part of the leaving Dubai journey was going to be the easiest.

    A massive thank you to Dr. Katrin, Dr. Vito, Nurse Wimby and Nora. GVC Groomer, I didn’t meet you, but your work is epic.

  • GVC is amazing. I have been using GVC over a couple of years now, and I would never go anywhere else. All the staff have a huge passion and dedication for animals, and clearly love working at GVC. Professional, compassionate, caring and really go out of their way to give the best possible care and attention. In the past with other vets I have always sought out a 2nd opinion, not once, in the last 3 years since being with GVC have I ever felt the need to do this – I trust them 100%.

    A special mention for Dr Katrin – truly wonderful. It may be from a simple check up to a more serious illness, every step of a diagnosis and treatment if required has always been explained in a way I could understand. I have never met a vet, who loves my animals as much as me, not to mention the extra cuddles and fuss they get when Dr Katrin comes for our home visits. With over 10 pets in our household, the home visits really make for a stress free day.

    If you only want the best for your pets, GVC Is the place to go, you will never use any other vet again!

    GVC Team, keep up the amazing work that you do!

  • Most cats don’t like traveling, Dr. Katrin does home visits so they don’t need to. She always takes her time with each of our cats to get to know them and handles them in such a relaxed manner. You just know she really loves them! Even our grumpy boy she manages just fine. Her diagnosis have always been spot on and there isn’t a vet clinic in the UAE whom I trust more than Dr. Katrin and her team at the GVC clinic!

  • The GVC never fails to impress and wow. The team are excellent – friendly and professional with a real can do attitude and the expertise to match. I adopted a wonderful cat (love the cat friendly facilities) from one of their lovely adoption days and I wouldn’t want any of my furries (2 x cats and a dog) treated or boarding anywhere else. Since discovering the GVC three years ago the experience has always been superb and consistently exceeds expectations.

    Highly recommended – thanks GVC!

  • Dear GVC,

    Thank you so much, everyone!

    They are settling in well… and into everything 🙂 exploring, getting used to walks and the lifts:-p

    Loving the different personalities: Lola is very stubborn.. toilet trained already, has a smelly bottom and a bully with chews 🙂 Chloe is more nervous… loves cuddled, growls if Lola gets in her space with chews.

    Both think they have ever-ready batteries and fighting with sleep. They must have got bored on their flight and chew through their collars.

    So it’s all fun and games, and loving being a new mum.



  • Dear GVC, 

    Thank you for your support and the advice over the last few weeks, GVC has been such a great team for our animal family and I would also like to think of you all as friends as I’ve always had a smile and such a warm welcome when I visit. 

    I’ve checked through all the papers and it looks good to go…All the best and thank you once again for making what could be a very stressful process into a headache free one.


  • Dear GVC,

    I just wanted to say THANK You for your help and expertise in arranging Sherman’s trip home. You and your team made this experience so easy for us and so easy on Sherman. 

    Despite the cold weather (about 2o c this morning). Sherman has enjoyed exploring his new home. It didn’t take him long to re-discover squirrels and how frustrating and fun they can be. 

    While we will sincerely miss the team at the German Veterinary Clinic, we are grateful for your support and wish you all the best in 2017. 

    Best Regards.
