1. Be Kind To Pets Community
Payoh Vets is a private small-animal practice in Singapore. It was
started in 1982 by Dr Sing Kong Yuen to provide a more personalised
boutique service to Singapore pet owners and to do clinical research
and education of Singapore pet owners.
Since 1997, Toa Payoh Vets have been
making corporate social responsibility as part of its operations.
Employees and associate vets participate actively in the main project,
Kind To Pets, commenced since 1997 when the
internet was at its infancy and when web pages were grey.
2015, the world wide web has enabled Be
Kind To Pets to share veterinary information to
more people worldwide.
Educating pet owners
about good pet and
veterinary students about real-life challenges in veterinary
medicine and surgery is part of Toa Payoh Vets' mission
passes knowledge from one generation to another enabling progress.
Vets and interns are encouraged to
write compelling educational narratives that are published at
Be Kind To Pets. This project
is our giving back to
the society of pet lovers and veterinary community.
We research and write
articles to educate a younger generation of
pet owners and veterinary students all over the world using real case studies,
using the internet platforms.
This project was started by Dr Sing Kong Yuen in
1997. Our internet articles enable more pet owners and others
to share information and learn how to be kind to pets.
Some case studies are:
2. Producing veterinary
education videos at Toa Payoh Vets

3. Free Toilet Training
Advices to Singapore pet owners
Sing's interviews of over
600 cases of Singapore
puppies and their
Most puppy sellers don't
provide toilet training
advices and most
Singaporeans don't have
sufficient toilet training
knowledge. Therefore reading
the cases of situations
encountered may help them.
Or they can e-mail
get some free advices.
4. Blogs to bring veterinary
medicine and surgery alive to vet students
There is too much to study in
veterinary medicine and surgery - dogs, cats and other animals
unlike human medicine which focus only on people. The case studies
seen at Toa Payoh Vets will make veterinary studies more interesting
to the vet students as these are real cases
encountered by Dr Sing Kong Yuen in Singapore and some countries
like Myanmar overseas.
5. Internship for Singaporean
students who wish to be vets
Qualified interns are required to
do write veterinary reports or produce videos so that they learn
better rather than being an observer at Toa Payoh Vets. Most interns
have no animal handling experiences as they live in urbanised
Singapore and internship at Toa Payoh Vets enable them to know
whether they are interested in studying to be vets. Some projects
done by interns are:
7. Setting up a Foundation or
Charity for pets needing veterinary treatment
are interested in an investor who wishes to set up a foundation or
charity to provide free veterinary treatment for Singapore
owners who can't afford to treat their pets. Some entity equivalent to
the U.K's PDSA (People's Dispensary For Small Animals). An
example of a case needing free veterinary treatment is in
Epidermal Dysplasia in a
Westie in 2008.
