“LOOKING AND ACTING YOUNG”
I have a couple teenaged cats. I believe Dr. Honey’s approach to preventative health care is a contributing factor keeping these older cats looking and acting much younger than they are.
– Paul Hudson, Riverside Mortgage Group
“LUCKY TO HAVE THEM IN SQUAMISH”
Wonderful Doctors and staff, we couldn’t ask for better care for our cat! They are very professional, knowledgeable, kind, patient, compassionate, loving… we are very lucky to have them in Squamish! Highly recommend them.
– Heidi S
“NOT ALL VETS ARE CREATED EQUAL”
Garibaldi Veterinary Hospital is caring, knowledgeable and provides quality care! Not all vets are created equal and at GVH you know you are dealing with a well educated staff. Your pet will be treated well and get the quality of care you want for a member of your family. GVH also sees all of Rosier Days Dog Rescue’s Squamish dogs. We have dealt with GVH with emergencies, dental care, and regular visits. They have donated time, and care to dogs in need. Ten stars to GVH!
– Tara Paw
“NOTHING BUT PRAISE”
We have nothing but praise for Dr. Honey and the staff at Garibaldi Veterinary Hospital. We were charged $400.00 less than the quote, and were kept informed of Mack’s condition throughout the surgery. Thank you.
– Phyllis Gunther
“YOUR COMPASSION IS GENUINE”
It’s not only me that comes away feeling that your compassion is genuine and that you all truly care about our critters. Having moved around a LOT and had many critters, I feel as though I am becoming somewhat of an expert on veterinarians and clinics. Out of all of them, I’ve never felt better about taking my companions to GVH. And I’ve been meaning to thank you for trimming Kansas’ claws when she was spayed. I hadn’t even looked at the invoice but noticed they’d lost their razor sharp touch. Thanks!
– Cat, Dodge & Kansas
“CAN’T IMAGINE ANOTHER VET”
Thank you for all of the excellent care and kindness you and all of the staff have given Charlie, from his multiple ear infections as a puppy to these last two knee surgeries, and for the pet insurance advice, it sure helped to give my furry boy, the best care possible. I can’t imagine another vet. office that he will love to go to so much!
Thanks again – Louise
“WE ARE IN GOOD HANDS”
Thank you for the great gift for Sadie. It is too good to be true. Sonic and Sadie have been doing great. Since I visited GVH first time with sick Sonic, I’ve felt we are in good hands.
Just want to say thank you so much.
– Natsu Walsh
“WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND DR. HONEY AND HIS TEAM”
Our dog, Daisy, has benefitted hugely over her almost twelve years. Daisy has received consummate care for routine check-ups, several surgeries and even an after-hours referral for emergency, life-saving surgery. We wouldn’t still have our beautiful girl if not for GVH! We are very impressed by the high level of services offered and grateful for their compassionate care. Thanks, GVH!
– Susan Brant
“NEW PET? OLD PET? NEED A VET?”
Go meet Dr. Honey or Dr. Kirkham at Garibaldi Veterinary Hospital. They are the best clinic in town! I met Dr. Honey in 2014, when he helped me through the toughest choices I needed to make regarding my dog’s fight with cancer. He may not have agreed with some of them, but he stood by my decisions to the end. I have total faith and confidence in both Dr. Honey and Dr. Kirkham as well as the staff in behind the scenes and at the desk. The clinic truly offers the best of the best!
– Randi Lou
“I CANNOT SAY ENOUGH ABOUT DR. HONEY AND HIS COMMITMENT TO THE ANIMALS IN HIS CARE”
Last year he supported us when we had to put our dog down. And with our new puppy this summer he so helpful and full of knowledge. He comes from such a place of passion to our fur babies. All the staff are kind amazing and caring. So grateful.
– Julie Susanne
“TWO OF MY CATS USED TO GO TO THE VET IN DOWNTOWN”
In 2014 my male cat got diagnosed with Bladder infection. After 20 days of antibiotic, still something was not right. One of my co-workers recommended GVH for the 2nd opinion.I was so impressed that Dr. Honey took so much time to get information, explained throughly and gave me the options what can be done including costs. At the other vet, it was like almost in and out procedure.The ultra sound showed he had crystals in his bladder, not just an infection.He got a proper treatment finally. Since then he has been a happy, healthy cat.

Both of my cats have got dental cleaning done about a month ago. I couldn’t do it without the insurance which Dr. Honey recommended.

Such a good feeling your pets are under good care. I highly recommend GVH to everybody.

Thank you Dr. Honey, Dr. Kirkham and of course friendly and knowledgeable staff!
– Natsu Walsh

“BLOWN AWAY BY THE AMAZING SERVICE”
I am usually hesitant to give referrals to friends because most people can always find something wrong with the service they get. But I recently referred my best friend to Dr.Honey for her cat (I go to him for my two dogs) and she was SO blown away BY the amazing service and willingness to help them in their situation! She texted me right away and was grateful for the referral! THANK YOU Dr. Honey for taking such good care of my BFF!
– Jess Boux
“EXCEPTIONAL CARE AND LOTS OF LOVE”
Thank you, Garibaldi Veterinary Hospital, for saving Shadow’s life yet again. You have given Shadow and Sasha exceptional care and lots of love. We are forever grateful to all of you for being so good to our beloved fur babies. Shadow is back to her old stubborn self. And we are very happy about that!
– The Vincents
“I WILL CONTINUE TO REFER PEOPLE TO YOU”
Thank you, Dr. Honey and the amazing staff at GVH for the wonderful care you provided for Milo (who, let’s be honest, can be a little difficult, lol) and the excellent customer service I received from you guys. I have and will continue to refer people to you! We wish you all the best!
– Kirstin & Milo
“DENTAL CARE INCREASED HER LIFE SPAN”
We attributed our 11-year-old Jade’s lack of energy, smelly breath and health issues to her age. After consulting with the team at GVH, we opted to have long-needed dental work done. In the 3 weeks since her surgery, our beloved Jade is back to her energetic self and her fur has regained its shiny black sheen. Most importantly, her quality of life and life span have no doubt increased tremendously. Thank you to all the staff at GVH who have loved and supported Jade over the past 3 years since we moved to Squamish.
– Jade’s loving family
“COMPASSIONATE AND PROFESSIONAL”
My 16 year-old dog, Rico, had a sore mouth, infected gums, and needed teeth extracted. Rico’s advanced age made me reluctant to have him anaesthetized for the procedure, however, the team at GVH were reassuring, compassionate and professional. Under their competent care, Rico came through his cleaning and oral surgery with flying colours. His energy levels and appetite are markedly improved since having his dentistry.
– Gail Windsor
“HIGHEST REGARD”
I brought Indy to Dr. Honey and was immediately impressed by his knowledge and his friendly, enthusiastic nature. Dr Honey’s love for animals is obvious, and I have absolute faith in his professionalism. I also have respect for Dr. Honey’s involvement in the Squamish community. He has a passion for mountain culture and has deep roots in this town. It is reassuring to know Dr. Honey will always be here and that he has known my dogs throughout their lives.
– Mark Simone
“OLDER ANIMALS HAVE GREATER NEEDS”
We are a four pet household; all middle-aged or older. Older animals have greater needs, and the staff at Garibaldi Veterinary Hospital do an exceptional job of addressing those. They genuinely care about the well being of our furry family, with follow up phone calls and check-ups, sometimes when we don’t even expect them. We know our pets are getting the best care with Garibaldi Veterinary Hospital!

“DOCTOR HONEY AND DOCTOR KIRKHAM ARE BOTH EXTRAORDINARY VETERINARIANS,”
great to the animals and their humans.
My dog loves it so much that he pulls me in, or tries if we’re just out for a walk, and is excited to see the vet and the rest of the staff. Both vets have great “bedside manners” with the pet owners as well. On a few occasions I was able to call and ask for advice on whether my dog should be seen or when he was having issues with an antibiotic prescribed, including once after hours and through their emergency service. Doctor Honey provided excellent care over the phone and was able to give me sound advice without seeing my dog and charging the after hours fee. An excellent clinic all around!
– Bridgette Sarah
“GARIBALDI VET HOSPITAL HAVE THE BEST STAFF WHO MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE YOU’RE FAMILY.”
The doctors truly care about their patients and take the time with you. I recommend Dr. Honey and his team to anyone who has animals. You’re in good hands!
– Kat Smyth

“DR HONEY & DR KIRKHAM ARE BOTH EXCELLENT VETS & CARE ABOUT THE PETS THEY SEE.”
GVH works as a team & all the staff is compassionate & knowledgeable. I would highly recommend GVH, as they make you feel like family. An excellent clinic all around!
– Colleen Helfrich
“THANK YOU DR. HONEY”
for popping your head in to say “Hi” to Dakota after her unscheduled visit to pick up her meds today. It was amazing you took the time to examine Dakota’s new hip replacement. We can’t Thank You enough for reassuring us that a slight limp with our new hip is quite normal and that she’s doing so well. Once again you prove that there are people out there that just love animals. We’re so happy we found your Hospital and Dakota looks forward to you helping her recover so she can enjoy ‘A Golden Life’. Thanks again, your reassuring words has made this major surgery a lot less stressful for us. In our opinion, anyone who has not yet found GVH is really missing out on the CARE and LOVE your team provides.
– Mary Cleaver
“SECOND TO NONE”
I travel from White Rock to have GVH look after our family pets. Dr. Honey and the staff are second to none! If you are looking for professional health care for your pet, look no further. I guarantee you won’t be sorry and your pets will love you for it! Darby and Hedley Thank You! 🙂 ♥
– Marcie Munro
“MY HOSPITAL OF CHOICE”
GVH is my hospital of choice when my are pets feeling under the weather or simply require routine maintenance. Dr. Honey and his team are a friendly bunch, and genuinely dedicated to the well-being of every pet and pet owner who walks through their door.

“GETTING BACK A MUCH LOVED PAL”
My dog Koko suffered from an infected tumour in her eye and dental disease. She slept 20+ hours/day, and would eat and drink very little. After the operations, treatments, and post-op care, Koko was a new dog! To say I am most pleased and satisfied with Dr. Honey and his team is a major understatement. I handed over a 12.5 year old (dying) dog and got back an active 5-6 year-old lab. I got back a much-loved pal I needed so much.
–Sincerely yours, R.H Grooms
“CAN’T SAY ENOUGH ABOUT GVH”
My parents took me to see Dr. Honey because after a day of swimming and running, my hips would feel sore. After getting a picture of my hips, Dr Honey told my parents I might need surgery, but we would try medicine first. Thank you so much GVH for making me feel better and taking such good care of my parents. I hear them every day at the dog park telling other parents how much the Drs and staff at GVH do their best to make us feel ourselves again.
– Dakota (Mary & Bryan Cleaver)
“YOU HELPED EASE MY WORRIES”
Another HUGE thank you to Dr. Honey, Aliesha, Tracy, Laura and Michelle for taking such fantastic care of my baby! She is doing great and taking it easy. You all helped to ease all my worries while she was in your care! All the texted updates and pictures, the calls from Dr. Honey, the calls and texts last night, made this so much easier than I thought it would be. I can never thank you all enough!
– Lara Newcombe-Taylor
“THE TEAM AT GVH IS JUST AMAZING”
I recently finished my practicum at GVH and I am so happy with the choice I made. The team at GVH is just amazing, they give top care to pets and their owners, treating everyone like family. Dr. Honey, Dr. Kirkham, and the girls ( Laura, Lara, Tracey, Michelle, Aliesha ) are so compassionate and knowledgeable — they taught me so much and launched me on my career as a Veterinary Assistant! Thanks everyone – I’ll miss the clients and their fur babies too
– Emiesha Farrell
“THE DIFFERENCE WAS INSTANTANEOUS”
Cinder had his first teeth cleaning a few weeks ago and I can’t believe the difference in our 10-year-old boy. He’s a puppy again! I hate to think of what the infection Dr. Honey found on the x-rays would have turned into if it wasn’t caught – I’m sure it would have been be very painful and not to mention costly. Oral health will always be a high priority going forward with all our critters. A big thank you to everyone at GVH for the great work you do and the care you show each and everyone of your furry patients.
