Vision, Mission and
Guiding Principles

To be a top 3 veterinary surgery in Singapore
In 2018, there are over 90 veterinary practices in Singapore. Surgical outcomes must be excellent to satisfy the pet owners and get more referrals from them to sustain the practice.

Standard procedures and consistent efficient processes are adopted. A high standard of surgery, pre- and post-operation care must be maintained to achieve excellent surgical and treatment outcomes.

Clinical research of cases must be done by vets and interns to hone their skills and gain expertise as every case is unique and much can be learnt from case studies. For example:

Final Video: Liver tumour operation in a Jack Russell. The dog has recovered fully from the liver tumour removal surgery.

Four Singapore dogs operated at Toa Payoh Vets have bladder stones are reviewed. The dogs have recovered.

To provide a personalised veterinary service 
Where pet owners and their children get good clinical and surgical outcomes for their pets and become our friends over the years.

We channel much effort to address the roots of Singapore pet's problems through advocacy, prevention, education and research.

To focus on providing high quality care, all our vets are expected to put emphasis on clinical governance, expertise and management. That include meticulous recording of anaesthesia and surgery, review of all cases performed and getting a highest possible % of successful outcomes of anaesthesias and surgery.

Some of our efforts are shared via the internet with pet owners at
Be Kind To Pets and Toilet training your puppy in Singapore. From 2013, more educational videos for vet students and pet owners are being produced as the younger generation is more visual.

Six Guiding Principles
1. We provide a great work and learning environment for staff.
2. We provide a very clean environment for warded pets, charging affordable rates and early discharge to reduce veterinary costs for clients.
3. We contribute to the community in partnership with corporations to educate young pet owners, pet shop operators and breeders. We have been involved, since 1995 in the "Be Kind To Pets" narrative community education under the sponsorship of Recently, educational videos are produced.

4. We know that time is a valuable asset for clients. We try to keep waiting time to less than 15 minutes for customers with prior appointments. 
5. We recognise that sustainable profitability is essential to our success. We need to be profitable so that we can provide a highest standard of ethical and affordable service to our customers and to upgrade our premises, equipment and services.
Eyes are the windows to the soul - toapayohvets
6. Our Veterinarians, Veterinary Technicians, Dog Groomers and Interns must find time to be self-educated continually and attempt to write their clinical research and observations for the betterment of pet care.
To share our experiences and knowledge with pet owner and vet students
We share our findings with the pet community via the internet or by publishing books ourselves and/or in collaboration with others. Archives of case studies are at
