List of Veterinary Specialists in Singapore

What is a board-certified veterinary specialist?

Board-certified specialist status is one of the highest levels of achievement for a veterinarian.

A veterinary specialist is a veterinarian who has undergone extensive training in a chosen field of discipline beyond the basic veterinary degree.

To achieve specialist qualification, one has to have undergone a rigorous training program supervised by qualified senior specialists, published studies in peer-reviewed journals, be involved in a set minimal amount of cases and pass an exhaustive examination process.

List of Veterinary Specialists in SG

The SVA recognises veterinary specialist certification that is recognised by the following institutions:

  • Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS)
  • American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA)
  • Australasian Veterinary Boards Council (AVBC)

These veterinary specialist practitioners demonstrate the ability to practise as specialists in UK, US/Canada, Australia/New Zealand respectively. They hold a postgraduate qualification at Diploma level or above, and demonstrate an active contribution to their specialty, have national and international acclaim and publish widely in their field.

Pet owners are advised to use this list as a reference to identify specialist care available in Singapore.

*Before seeking specialist care, pet owners are strongly advised to have a referral from a general practice veterinarian (usually a referral letter). This ensures continuous holistic health care for your pet.
