Small animal vet: 1982 - 2016.  Started Toa Payoh Vets in 1982. I am still practising. My focus is to provide personalised better surgical practice and healthcare for Singapore's pet owners by understanding their pet problems and lifestyle.

Mentor associate vets and impart to the team the values of honesty, hard work, a high standard of care and responsibility. Perform clinical research and continuing education. Update the community education for pet owners and veterinary students website at Be Kind To Pets.

In 2016, it will have been a great wonderful 42 years in veterinary practice for me since I graduated in 1974. I started Toa Payoh Vets in 1982 and many of my clients' children are now young adults. Some have married and I see their little ones with their pets. 

Younger associate vets will be handling most cases. Their cases are reviewed by me to ensure a high standard of veterinary medicine and surgery is practised.  My skills and expertise are shared with my associate vets. 

In 2016, I am 66 years old. I am still practising as I enjoy resolving the challenging varied cases every day and meeting the families of my older clientele.

I attend to deficiencies in services and complaints and to ensure that there is a high standard of veterinary care from Toa Payoh Vets, intending to make Toa Payoh Vets in the top 3 small animal surgeries in Singapore amongst the over 80 veterinary practices in Singapore, focusing on veterinary surgeries with successful outcomes in the majority of anaesthesias.

I am usually at work 7 mornings a week including public holidays and some afternoons and evenings unless I am overseas.

Giving back to the community is very important for me as I became a veterinarian due to the generosity of the British Government's Colombo Plan Scholarship presented to me in 1969. Some interesting projects in Singapore and Yangon are:
