Consultant Vet
: 2014 - 2015, Royal Asia Veterinary Surgery, Yangon, Myanmar.

In 2015, it will have been a great wonderful 41 years in veterinary practice for me since I graduated in 1974. I started Toa Payoh Vets in 1982 and many of my clients' children are now young adults. Some have married and I see their little ones with their pets. 

Younger associate vets will be handling most cases. Their cases are reviewed by me to ensure a high standard of veterinary medicine and surgery is practised.  My skills and expertise are shared with my associate vets.  In 2015, I am 65 years old. I am still practising as I enjoy resolving the challenging varied cases every day and meeting the families of my older clientele.

I attend to deficiencies in services and complaints and to ensure that there is a high standard of veterinary care from Toa Payoh Vets, intending to make Toa Payoh Vets in the top 3 small animal surgeries in Singapore amongst the over 60 veterinary practices in Singapore, focusing on veterinary surgeries with successful outcomes in the majority of anaesthesias.

I am usually at work 7 mornings a week including public holidays and some afternoons and evenings unless I am overseas.

Giving back to the community is very important for me as I became a veterinarian due to the generosity of the British Government's Colombo Plan Scholarship presented to me in 1969. Some projects in Singapore and Yangon are:
