Our Medical Referral Service, headed by Dr Anthony Goh, focuses on the diagnosis and management in areas of cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, haematology, infectious disease, medical oncology, nephrology and neurology. Our team of vets and technicians are trained to manage complex and intensive medical cases. 24-hour care is provided for all in-house patients.
You may be referred to a specialist if your pet’s health problem is more complex and requires additional expertise and/or specialised equipment. Your pet may be referred for a diagnostic procedure, or for both investigation and treatment. The aim of our referral service is to complement or be an extension of veterinary care already provided by your vet. As we do not replicate services of your regular vet, specialists do not usually provide basic care such as vaccinations, spays or neuters.
We are equipped to carry out advanced diagnostics and have an extensive veterinary pharmacy. We work closely with leading veterinary specialists around the world in areas of cardiology, radiology, oncology and internal medicine. Our on-site diagnostic services include a dedicated veterinary laboratory, diagnostic imaging centre and a full endoscopy suite (rigid and flexible).

General updates on your pet’s status may be obtained from our vet technicians who are caring for our patients.
A deposit is collected at the time of admission to cover part of the estimated bill. The amount will vary with each patient, depending on the expected procedures and level of care. While we endeavour to provide an accurate estimate, a top-up of the deposit may be required if your pet requires an extended stay or when the cost exceeds the initial quotation.
Veterinary treatment can be expensive especially when the illness is serious. We strongly advise you to keep track of your pet’s medical bill by enquiring at the reception regularly. Please discuss any cost concerns with our vet during consultation so that we can better manage your pet's treatment plan together.
