Singapore - Small Animal Practice

The practice is seeking the services of a doctor with practical knowledge and skills. What’s needed is someone able to look after the Patients well, and provide a good service to the Clients. The medical standard offered to Clients is high, and less expensive alternatives are provided as options.

Support includes an experienced Team (so flexibility is important), and modern facilities and a high level of equipment.

From the doctors’ viewpoint, if you are able to operate with at least a little independence, the practice provides a fantastic opportunity to develop skills, being equipped well for imaging in radiology, ultrasound, and endoscopy; surgery in soft tissue and orthopaedics; dermatology; ophthalmology; and TCVM; and supports and encourages high level internal medicine. Additionally, it supports continuing education in whatever relevant field you choose, with flexible leave and financial support packages and equipment purchasing. You can potentially grow faster here than at a large referral practice. You do not need to be an expert to begin.

Remuneration is better than competitive, and Singapore is similar in many ways to London or Sydney – a big, fast, air-conditioned, well fed, english-speaking city.

If you believe you may be a candidate and are interested in our position, please contact us ( / +65 91465265) and we’ll help you decide.

IAPWA are a UK registered charity operating a TNR project at the city dog pound in Kota Kinabalu, Borneo. We neuter and provide veterinary care and treatment to stray dogs collected around KK. IAPWA support local NGO’s providing neutering and veterinary care to dogs and cats in their shelters and do outreach in other areas of Sabah. The team also promote responsible pet ownership via education sessions.

The work is fast paced and our vet team perform high numbers of neuterings per day, the facilities at the pound are pretty basic and the work can be demanding but.... it is extremely rewarding.

IAPWA provide accommodation for all our volunteers in a well equipped volunteer house in a quiet neighbourhood just outside the city. Volunteers provide their own food but utility bills are paid by the charity and a car is provided for the volunteer team to use.  Volunteers get plenty of time off to explore and our resident local team are friendly and supportive. 

Although the project has a small local team we depend on volunteers and need qualified volunteer vets and nurses all year round. Ideally we would like vets to commit to 3 months or more as we have to obtain temporary practicing permits we do however consider requests for shorter placements when we can. Nurses do not require practice permits and we can usually accommodate shorter stays.

The Island Veterinary Clinic has been caring for the pets of Discovery Bay ( for almost 15 years. Discovery Bay is an enclave in Hong Kong’s hustle and bustle, and with a strongly developing and wealthy client base Doctors Beck & Stone opened a 2nd clinic in the locality 3 years ago. The clinics works as one team and are about 3 kms apart.

Both locations have a digital x-ray, in-house Idexx lab machines, sharing a Doppler ultrasound and dental x-ray: the nursing staff are Philippine vets who work as Veterinary Technicians.

Doctors Beck & Stone culture focuses on team values and clinical support typified by the clinical development program that focuses on providing training across the team whilst supporting the development of clinical leaders in imaging, internal medicine and surgical disciplines.

The position suits a sole-charge practitioner with 3 or more years of experience though vets with 1 year of experience can apply. Travel to Discovery Bay by Hong Kong standards is extended by ferry or bus (30mins), hence the role would suit a vet who wants a quieter life and would like to live by beaches and amongst families with dogs. Within 2018 it is anticipated that the team would need a 3rd full-time vet hence the opportunity might suit a couple.

Putting the welfare of our patients first and advancing the field of veterinary medicine are fundamental to the Doctors Beck & Stone approach to supporting local communities to become responsible pet owners through education and outreach. That’s why our staff can often be seen at local community events; delivering workshops to local schools; and sponsoring charity activities.

Hong Kong is a vibrant city and is both the gateway to China mainland and an excellent travelling base for Asia. Whilst tower blocks feature regularly in blockbuster movies there are few world cities where hills are a hike out of the central business district and beaches a ferry ride away.

Package is commensurate with experience with salary range of GBP5-7K per month, plus end of year hospital performance bonus, continuing professional development budget GBP1K per annum, and re-location package includes flights and work visa / VSB registration support. In this truly international city whilst rent is high it is off-set by a 17% tax rate and there is a diverse range of options.

To apply, simply send your CV and cover letter to along with the reference number relevant to the role.

We invite you to join us in making this happen. The SPCA is the only animal shelter in Fiji’s capital city of Suva and in the whole Southern half of the main island of Viti Levu. We are a small but busy, not for profit animal shelter and clinic. The shelter temporarily houses strays and surrenders for rehoming, while our clinic aims to both support the shelter and provide affordable services to local clients. We have a team of capable vet nurses and assistants (currently a staff of ten) and a basic but adequate surgery and clinic (we are currently fund raising for a new X Ray machine).  If you are able to operate with some independence, the practice provides a fantastic opportunity for you to grow and develop your skills.

The SPCA administrative team will organise your permits, pay a locally competitive wage and provide you with bill free accommodation close to the centre of Suva.
