Hospital Philosophy

Our clients are our friends as well as our customers and we value their continued trust and good will. Courtesy and patience with clients and their pets are our priorities. We strive to show an attitude of "We are glad you are here" to each and every client. Clients favor us by selecting us to care for their pets, not vice versa. This is the most important concept for us to remember, and makes it easier to understand the importance of showing genuine concern and interest in a client's problem.

Have a Heart

Gunston Animal Hospital has been taking in stray or abandoned kittens from the community for years. Although we are not a shelter or a rescue, if we have the capability we foster cats and kittens and place them up for adoption.

Sometimes these pets are so young that they need to be bottle-fed. A few times they are feral kittens and need help with socializing to become comfortable around people. Occasionally they are sick and require medical attention to nurse back to health.

Whatever the situation, our caring staff help as a team to nurture these cats before they find their forever homes! We appreciate any donations to help us with the cost to care for these sweet cats and kittens. Once adopted, our adoption fee covers the spay or neuter when they are old enough. Please call us if you have any questions.

Our Vision

Our vision at Gunston Animal Hospital locations is to provide the highest quality veterinary medicine possible at reasonable prices.  We place a high priority on educating pet owners on how to provide for the well-being of their pets, and we believe that preventative care is the best way to ensure good health. Community involvement is at the core of our mission, as this provides us with the opportunity to impact most effectively on the all-important human-animal bond.
