Veterinary Care

Singapore - Veterinary Care

Veterinary care in Singapore is good and similar to western standards. In addition to vet offices that are open during regular business hours, there are also several emergency clinics that are open around the clock. English speaking veterinarians can be found as well, especially since English is considered to be Singapore’s defacto business language.

The official Veterinary Board is the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA). Their website can be found at http://www.ava.gov.sg

The Singapore Veterinary Association at http://www.sva.org.sg also provides information regarding veterinary centers and veterinarians in Singapore. The website contains a link to member physicians and services.

Veterinarians are located throughout Singapore and can be found in every district. Some popular vets include:

Veterinarian offices and surgery centers should be clean, modern, and equipped to handle preventive care, maintenance, and ongoing health concerns for your pets. Regrettably, Singapore does not offer pet insurance to care for your pets. Treatment costs can be expensive, depending on your pet’s ailment. A basic consultation normally starts at S$25 but that can depend on which clinic you go to. Se vets have a consultation fee of S$40 but if you bring your pet back for the same issue then the fee might be waived upon the return visit.

Some of the veterinarians have biographies and photos included on their websites. Learning about their backgrounds and qualifications can make it helpful in deciding if that’s the vet you want to go to. However, you might find that not all vets have the same philosophies toward pets as you. For that reason, getting personal recommendations might be just as valuable in your research.

Most vets treat cats and dogs but many also treat smaller pets such as hamsters and birds. Agricultural animals, such as horses and cows, are generally not kept as pets in Singapore since it’s really a small island and land is very dear.
