Dr. Jane Gray
Deputy Director (Veterinary Services)/Chief Veterinary Surgeon
Bachelor of Veterinary Science (BVSc), University of Liverpool & Member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (MRCVS), UK
Post Graduate Certificate (Small Animal Surgery), Sydney University, Australia.

After graduation I started my career in mixed practice (large and small animal) in Hertfordshire, England. Finding the UK way too cold and wet, I packed my rucksack and headed east to Singapore where I worked for a small animal and zoo practice. Later, during my travels through Asia I arrived in Hong Kong and was lucky enough to be offered a locum position at the SPCA. This was in 1991 and apart from a brief break in Australia and New Zealand (in 1998) I have been here ever since!
Soft tissue surgery, education and of course animal welfare, ethics and law. I am involved in both veterinary nurse and veterinary surgeon training in Hong Kong, together with giving lectures (on a variety of topics) and spreading the message of animal welfare in various Chinese cities for local veterinary surgeons and those involved in animal shelters. I have and continue to sit active on various government boards and was President of the Hong Kong Veterinary Association from 2003-05.
REASONS FOR WORKING AT THE SPCA (HK)
I love living in Hong Kong and have always been committed to animal welfare so the SPCA combines the two perfectly.
