The health of our dogs and cats is sometimes compromised by bacteria, viruses and parasites which cause diseases such as kennel cough, tick fever, FIV, FeLV and cat flu. We can help prevent infectious diseases through vaccinations, parasite-control and good hygiene. Early detection and treatment give our animals the best chances of recovery.

It is estimated that 85% of all pets have periodontal disease by the time they are 3 years old. Even with regular brushing, we should be visiting our dentist every 6 months. Same for our beloved pets. Examine your pet’s teeth today and seek veterinary attention early. Prevention is always better than cure!

We share advances in interventional radiology which allow vets to perform minimally-invasive procedures such as tracheal stent placement for animals with tracheal collapse. Learn some tips on bonding with our pocket pets as well as the benefits of sterilisation to prevent certain medical and behavioural issues. Sterilisation is a responsible decision to lessen the problem of pet over-population.

Intraluminal tracheal stenting is a palliative, minimally-invasive procedure to restore an obstructed or narrowed tracheal lumen.

"After Baffy's surgery, we were advised to watch out for any strange lumps. On Sunday, we felt a growth on his chest. A large amount of pus was discharged & today the growth is much smaller. It's good to have Baffy checked by Dr Dennis Choi so we have peace of mind. We're thankful he is alright. He's very happy everyday & has put on 3kg!" ~ Gwen
