List of Recommended Singapore Vets

Recommended List of Singapore Vets | Vanillapup

Here is a list of Singapore vets we recommend based on either personal experience or stellar reviews from other pet owners.

Wouldn’t it be great if all vets are compassionate, well-equipped, and skilled in all aspects of veterinary practice? Unfortunately, like everything else, not all are made equal.

You may encounter inexperienced vets or vets who are too busy to give their 100%. Some vets are better at diagnostics while some are a cut above the rest at treatment.

Not only that, the fact is that some clinics have more or better equipment and facilities than the others.

Thus, besides being able to hit it off with your vet, you must also be able to rationally trust her with your pet’s life. Her advice will most likely determine your decisions. An incorrect diagnosis will delay treatment and the wrong treatment may do harm instead of good.

So, take your time to look for a vet you can trust. Ask questions and know that you don’t have to stick to one vet for every single medical problem. In fact, it’s good to seek the opinion of more than one vet in certain cases.

    My westie always had itchy skin since young. I switched from animal companion to vet@rv as the situation did not improve with the first one. The second one helped to stop the scratching but now he has flared up in rashes with huge ass pimple-like things all over his body. I spoke to the vet last night but I am not convinced with his solution. I am getting very desperate and heart ache seeing my dog like that. I am thinking of seeking a second opinion. Would you recommend Dr Gino @ The Animal Infirmary for this area of skin specialty as you mentioned it helped you?

      Hi Caramel! Sorry to hear that. We want you to know that we understand what you are going through. You should definitely get a second opinion if you are not convinced with what your current vet has to offer. Dr. Gino has successfully helped a few of our readers get better but for some patients, he still uses conventional methods like steroids. Another vet I would recommend is Dr. Lee Yan Yi from Gentle Oak. She is more holistic and we like that she uses herbal supplements for long-term management. If you are more comfortable with holistic methods, you should consult her. We are also currently trying this supplement called Histablock, which helps with environmental allergies. We just started so can’t review it yet. Nonetheless, do update us on your Westie’s progress 🙂

    My down been down with diarrhea for months and been to steriod to suppress the inflammation on the intestine but never provide a firm answer to me except sensitive stomach..is this normal ? Any experience here

      Hi Jonathan, sad to hear that your dog has been down with diarrhoea. Could it be Irritable Bowel Syndrome? Your dog probably needs a diet that’s suitable for his/her stomach. I would recommend you to seek a second opinion if your current vet is unable to improve your dog’s condition.
