Thank You Iresh, Serina, Tricia!

“Working with animals is more than just a job. Our role is not about cuddling cute puppies and kittens as most people think (but some days we do!). We are trying our best to help patients who cannot speak.”

We all love animals. But it takes a lot more to make up your mind, study and practise your skills so you can actually be the one to make a sick or injured animal well again. Today we say THANK YOU to Iresh, Serina and Tricia of Mount Pleasant Animal Medical Centre (Bedok) – happy and energetic ladies who are ever ready to help!

“Our role is not about cuddling cute puppies & kittens as most people think. It is challenging & you become an expert in multi-tasking & handling fractious animals. You learn to crawl under shelving units or consult tables to catch a frightened cat.”

Working with animals can be emotionally challenging too, especially when patients come in with serious health problems or when it is time to consider euthanasia to relieve them of their suffering.

“The most rewarding part of my job is to see a patient recovering from disease & become full of life again. The smiles on the animals’ & their owners’ faces fill me with joy & contentment. It makes my day complete.”

“Most people think I have a strong mind & personality. Only a few know that I am benevolent in many ways. If I can be anything in the world, I will be a philanthropist.”

“I love all things vintage. In times of solitude, I listen to Matt Monro’s songs and sing when I’m bored, stressed or lonely. When no one is watching, I dance like a hip hop dancer!

My parents guided me through some of life’s hardest journeys. They have always been ready to give me answers to calm my confused mind and encourage me to be optimistic. I will be grateful to them for as long as I live. They are my inspiration.”

“My family, especially my daughter Syrenne Gwencynth, is the inspiration behind all my hard work. I wish to be a supermom to my daughter!

My talents? I’m proud to say I play the keyboards and guitar. I’m motivated by the motto – If others can do it, why can’t I?”

“I wanted to be a vet since I was young. After graduating with Diploma in Veterinary Technology from Temasek Polytechnic, I realised I enjoy being a vet technician as I am able to provide more hands-on care for our patients.” ~ Tricia

“I’m happiest seeing our patients get well & go home, especially if they were admitted for serious illnesses.”

In an ideal world, all sick animals should receive prompt treatment especially when we know the condition is easily treatable.

“For a period of time when I was younger, I wanted to be an air stewardess. Unfortunately I did not meet the height requirement! :(” ~ We’re sorry that dream did not come true but we are glad you are here with us, Tricia!
