Temporary Reduction of Veterinary Emergency and Hospital Services!
Vet Services Department
Our veterinary services department comprises seven static locations and a mobile desexing vehicle and is a far cry from when we opened our first clinic in Kowloon in 1953. Our vet services department has grown considerably over the last seventy years and we now employ 22 veterinary surgeons, 25 nurses, 25 customer service staff and three support personnel. Our facilities include a fully-equipped hospital, in-house laboratories, state-of-the-art digital radiography, ultrasound, ECG and endoscopy/bronchoscopy.
The team provides high quality primary consultation and surgery, serving the needs of our members. It also performs all of the veterinary work associated with our wider animal welfare programmes including providing expert knowledge and advice.

- 24-hour Emergency Service at our headquarters in Wanchai;
