Allpets & Aqualife Vet Clinic

We are a well-established general practice in the north-eastern leafy suburbs of Singapore. We have an energetic and supportive team of 5 vets, with a nurse to vet ratio of 2:1. Our vets are graduates from Australia, Ireland and the UK, and within our support team are senior techs and experienced nurses.

We see to a large variety of small animal cases and a few exotics as well. While our patients range from furry to scaly to feathery, it is up to the candidate as to their comfort level of attending to exotics. We handle most soft tissue surgeries and have a wide and varied medicine caseload, which means chances for learning and sharing are high as well.

The clinic is located in a largely affluent neighbourhood, and our clientele are generally friendly and reasonable. All our vets are driven by a similar work ethic and believe in doing good by our colleagues, clients and patients. We occasionally meet clients who are unable to afford gold standard care, but when they are forthcoming, and if we can help, we do.

The ideal candidate will have good communication skills, sound leadership qualities, and is a team player. They are keen to develop more skills and open to exploring new horizons. They are empathetic and compassionate towards owners as well as their pets.

An experienced candidate is preferred; however, new and recent graduates are also welcome to apply. New graduates will be rostered alongside experienced colleagues and receive all-round support. There are avenues for the candidate to grow with the practice.

The salary package offered will be commensurate with experience and skill set. The salary is highly competitive - in the range of SGD60,000 to $150,000 for a basic 4-day week- before bonuses.

Taxation is low (about 10%) in Singapore, which means the candidate will take home more at the end of the day. A relocation package is available for overseas candidates.
CPD is encouraged and supported.

Our principal has a Masters in Aquatic Studies from the University of Stirling and has been published for discovering fish diseases. He has worked with sea mammals, including dolphins, for most of his career and is a wildlife and exotics enthusiast.
Our other clinic director completed a year-long certificate in Ultrasound and has been performing ultrasounds for more than a decade.

Our equipment includes the Idexx full suite, digital xray, ultrasound, rigid and flexible scopes, tonometry, BP doppler, fluid pumps, etc.

The practice is open for consultations Mondays to Fridays, 9.30am-1pm and 3-7.30pm. On Saturdays, we close at 5.30pm. We are closed on Sundays and public holidays. After-hours calls at the clinic occur zero to two times a month, on average. Commission is paid on these ad hoc calls. Vets are also paid a commission for after-hours wildlife field calls if it interests them to be involved.

Being non-corporate, we have the bandwidth to be more flexible with work arrangements.

Singapore is safe and has a stable economy, with a perennial sunny climate, and you will have easy access to Southeast Asia’s beautiful beaches and landscapes. Vehicles are expensive to own in Singapore. However, you will find the public transport system to be highly accessible and efficient. We also have a company van used for work that staff may borrow for special occasions like outings to the beach, for example.

Our vets are happy to chat with any interested candidates. Please contact Winnie at if you wish to know more about the position.

Vacancy Announcement:
Free the Bears

Consulting Veterinarian (x2) - Short-term Assignment, Southeast Asia

Closing date for applications: 15th December 2023

Applications are sought from resourceful self-starters to fill the roles of Consulting Veterinarians with Free the Bears in Southeast Asia, based in Laos, and to be part of an international organisation driving change in the fields of wildlife conservation and animal welfare.

The work of Free the Bears is currently centred on three focal countries where we have created the Cambodia Bear Sanctuary (in Cambodia), Tat Kuang Si Bear Rescue Centre and Luang Prabang Wildlife Sanctuary, in Laos, and Cat Tien Bear Sanctuary in Vietnam. Currently, across these sanctuaries we provide life-long care to over 270 bears, in addition to a variety of other rescued wildlife species in Laos. Our Veterinary Programme focuses on developing the capacity of local veterinary teams to deliver gold-standard levels of veterinary care to rescued wildlife and integrating a One Health approach to biosecurity and zoonotic disease surveillance through provision of international-standard equipment and training. Our Veterinary Programme currently consists of 2 Cambodian Resident veterinarians and one Assistant Veterinarian, 1 Vietnamese government counterpart veterinarian (in Vietnam) and one Lao Resident veterinarian and one Assistant Veterinarian, plus a veterinary nurse (in Laos).  We have established modern wildlife hospitals across all three countries, each featuring a full range of medical and diagnostic equipment including gas anaesthesia, radiography (digital or computerized), ultrasound, biochemistry etc. We have in-depth protocols in place at all of our hospitals and a network of specialist veterinarians who help consult on complicated cases.

The primary role of the Consulting Veterinarian will be to work side by side with the Resident Veterinarian in a support and mentorship capacity as well as to assist the Resident Vets with the training and mentorship of the Assistant Veterinarians. Over the past years, the Resident Vets have received training in: darting and basic anaesthesia of captive bears, basic ultrasound, radiography, selected laboratory techniques, selected dental procedures, selected pharmacology. The next phase of their professional development will be geared towards the following: deeper understanding of anaesthetic drug combinations and their uses in compromised and geriatric individuals; diagnostic ultrasound and interpretation of findings; radiography for dental evaluations, lameness, back lesions, and interpreting thoracic films; dental extractions; understanding common illnesses and presenting signs (e.g., hypothyroidism, hypertension); selection of appropriate diagnostic tests; interpretation of diagnostic tests, with an emphasis on biochemistry and hematology; selection of appropriate medications and evaluating response to treatment; parasitology; interpreting a fundic exam.

Please click here to see photos! photos

In order to achieve this targeted professional development, Free the Bears is recruiting two Consulting Veterinarians, one to join our Cambodia Programme and the other to join the Laos Programme. On a day-to-day basis, the Cambodia Programme Consulting Veterinarian will work as part of a team of veterinarians overseeing the health of around 120 rescued bears in the Cambodia Bear Sanctuary, which sits within Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Centre in Cambodia. This multi-species rescue centre is government owned and run, and while the locally staffed wildlife hospital caters for all species resident at the centre, the Free the Bears’ veterinary team is primarily responsible for the health of the bears within the sanctuary. The Laos Programme Consulting Veterinarian will work as part of a small team overseeing the health of a growing population of over 100 rescued bears as well as 30+ other species received at the Luang Prabang Wildlife Sanctuary. Both positions are for a 6-month contract period, with the possibility of extension.

The ideal Consulting Veterinarian will be an experienced small animal, mixed animal, or zoo practitioner. Due to the physiological and anatomical similarities of bears to large dogs, many clinical skills are transferrable (ultrasound, dentistry, radiography, internal medicine, etc). Additionally, the Resident Vets will teach the Consulting Veterinarian how to dart the bears, FTB anaesthetic protocols, technical skills such as IV catheter placement, ET tube placement, blood pressure monitoring, and bear behaviour as it relates to stress and illness.

Essential Experience:

Desirable Characteristics:

Start Date: 08 January 2024, or as soon after as possible

Contract: Full-time, five-days per week, 3 to 6-month contract with potential to extend

Salary: Net salary of USD2000 - 3000/month, based on qualifications, experience and duration of assignment, with benefits (see below). Local taxes paid by Free the Bears. Consultants are responsible for meeting tax obligations in their tax residency.

Location: Based at Free the Bears’ Luang Prabang Wildlife Sanctuary and Tat Kuang Si Bear Rescue Centre, both ~1hour from Luang Prabang City


Interested applicants should send a resume and cover letter, detailing relevant experience for the role, by email to with the subject line “Consulting Vet Application”.

Closing date for applications: 15th December 2023

As a global organization that works with partners and communities across a wide range of countries, Free the Bears values diversity and is committed to equality of opportunity. We welcome applicants of traditionally underrepresented communities to apply regardless of ethnicity, age, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, socioeconomic status or disability to help us build an inclusive environment across all areas of our work.

Embark on an adventure with Animal Doctors International!

We all embark on our Veterinary career expecting it to be a rewarding, dream job. The reality can often be different and lead to frustration, disillusionment and even burnout.

At Animal Doctors International we are acutely aware of the dream vs reality. We endeavour to create an untouchable work-life balance to ensure you can do your best work with the animals we care for.

4 day work week. Yes it includes emergency cover but we understand that this needs to be compensated. While overtime is rare, when it does happen – days in lieu are applied.

Facilities. Our “oldest” hospital is just 3 years old! They are all kitted out with digital x-ray, ultrasound, dental x-ray, cloud based software (paper free!), label printers, immunofluorescence, microscopy, fluid & syringe pumps, BP machines, gas anaesthesia, monitoring equipment, electrocautery, isolation wards, capnograph, ventilator, endoscopy, laser machine, separate cat and dog facility – we are ISFM accredited! See:

Support. This is a hospital run by vets. We understand the pressures and demands of the job. We put patient care first. This means that we allocate up to 40 minutes per consult, ensuring clear communication with clients which helps develop trust between vet and client. This enables our vets to work up cases fully and create the best treatment plans. Our reception and junior vets are fully trained to ensure the day runs as efficiently and smoothly as possible. We have a team of 12 international vets and 20 junior vets with interests and certificates in different areas. This means that our vets always have a huge depth of experience and knowledge to draw on. With our cloud based clinical software and internal messaging system, our team can access cases and give advice and guidance no matter where we are based. We believe that the best patient care happens when our vets feel confident with the team around them. Our clinical director is always available and ready to step in when needed.

Outreach. Being based in a developing country, means that animal welfare is not always a priority. Fortunately, we have the opportunity to change that. We work with both local charities and international NGOs. Our vets regularly take part in TNR campaigns and also disappear into the jungle to take care of elephants when needed!

Fun. We have lots of fun. It's the only way to get through the day sometimes! Our team has a terrific sense of humour, especially when it comes to the hilarious miscommunications that naturally happen in a multicultural environment! After work drinks are compulsory and are always great craic!

As for the life part… that takes care of itself! We are spoiled living in South East Asia. All our hospitals are located in vibrant, chaotic cities with a profound history and unique culture. When we need a break from city life, a short flight can take you to mountain trekking in Sapa or a white, sandy beach in Phuket. Our team is young and dynamic and loves to help our new arrivals settle in and experience the culture as a local should!

Don’t just take our word for it, here’s what our Vet’s have to say:
My journey with Animal Doctors International started with a phone call from Dr Tara during my travels through South East Asia. Shortly after, I met members of the team and participated in their desexing project in Laos, which sparked my interest in working in this unexpected new environment.

After a while of working in Laos, I relocated to work in their new clinic in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Apart from the daily tasks and challenges as a (newly graduated) vet, I also saw myself confronted with the language barrier and cultural differences. Being a sole charge veterinarian for sure tested my abilities in many ways and created a certain performance pressure, however, I never truly felt alone, thanks to a supportive team of international vets within ADI just a phone call or message away.

All of this forced me to work more creatively, and independently and helped me gain a better understanding of people and myself. I strongly believe it was a great opportunity for steep professional as well as personal development and growth that I wouldn’t have gone through in a regular Western working environment. On top of all that, I got to live, experience and explore this beautiful country in my time off! Living and working abroad was one of the best decisions for me, and I would highly recommend it to anyone – Dr Cynthia

Valley Veterinary Centre, Hong Kong

Experienced Full Time Veterinarian required for a very well established, (more than 50 years), non-corporate, private veterinarian owned Hong Kong Island clinic with excellent clientele and interesting challenging cases. 

This is a position for a confident veterinary general practitioner who also may want to pursue some special interests!

The right vet for this job still enjoys being a vet, still has a passion to care for animals, and very much enjoys being an important part of a family’s care for their pet. We are a 100% small animal (dogs and cats) general practice and very personable. Our clients are friendly, co-operative and loyal through generations! We are truly a family veterinary practice.

Please click here to see photos! photos

We are steadily busy, work by appointments and see a variety of cases as first and second opinions. We close at closing time and try to maintain a good work life balance. After-hours calls are taken but after-hours cases are never seen - they are referred to one of the several fully staffed 24/7 emergency centres in Hong Kong.

Veterinarians must be able to work alone and be reliable, responsible, compassionate and also work as a team player. Case work up and management of cases personally with clients is important.

Weekend work is expected, 4.5 day a week roster with shared public holidays (1/2 day only).

Fluent English is required (most clients speak English). This is somewhat unique in Hong Kong as in most areas the clients do not speak English well, which makes it difficult as a non-Chinese speaker to gain a rapport with clients. The majority of our clients speak excellent English which enables you as the family veterinarian to discuss the case directly with the owner and build the trust relationship directly with them. This is a far more rewarding way to practice!

Hong Kong is an amazing place to live!  Clean, organised and diverse.  Public transport is safe, efficient and cheap. Everyone thinks of the concrete jungle of shopping, restaurants and bars – yet within minutes you can be hiking in a thick jungle of diverse plants and wildlife with waterfalls and rock climbing. There are amazing beaches and camping places.  A huge range of sports available and within 10-12 hours flight you can be nearly anywhere in the world. Within a few hours flight you can enjoy the delights that Asia has to offer! It is a true travel hub. 

Salary will be around $HK80,000 per month (which is approx $AUD 190,000 gross per annum and with HK’s low tax, will be approx $AUD162,000 per annum net after tax) and performance bonus to be discussed. This will depend on experience and what you can offer to the practice.

Looking for someone to start immediately to join the team and build their veterinary career.

Please send application to

KWPLH provides a wonderful accommodation in the form of a forested enclosure for 6 sun bears rescued from the illegal pet trade. Sun bears are the mascot of Balikpapan, and many of our current education programs focus on this species.

Our Domestic Animal Program was created in response to the frequent dumping of kittens/puppies at KWPLH. We have attempted to establish a safe home for abandoned animals and a sterilization and adoption program. We currently have 125+ cats under our care as well as close to 30 dogs, and occasionally take care of other rescued wildlife species whenever brought to the center (macaque, civets, slow loris, birds).

The goals of our Domestic Animal Program are:

Experienced Volunteer Vet Needed
We are in need of experienced veterinarian to assist with training and development of our local animal care team. The primary goal is to further train up our team [specifically our local veterinarian] in specialist medical care for our animals, under more or less challenging conditions, and to train our Indonesian animal care-taking staff in mastering necessary skills and knowledge on specialist issues that need frequent treatments.

Other tasks include ideas on improvement of our medical administration and records, enrichment and training programs, and enhancing our adoption programme. There will be work with the sun bears and other wild species, but most time will go to our domestic animals and staff training.

Outlined below is a list of topics that we need help with:

For more details about KWPLH and the veterinary position please email us!

We welcome the help from professional veterinarian in 2022-2023. The position is preferably for 3+ months, but do e-mail us as well if you are available for shorter periods. Free housing is provided at the center, but a small local catering fee is required for meals. A volunteer visa will need to be applied for at a small cost. Couples are also welcome to apply.

Is practicing veterinary medicine just a part of your life? 
Tired of the urban rat-race?
Want an outdoor lifestyle? 
Ever considered emigrating to Canada?

The location: 

The practice is located on an acreage on the west shore of Kootenay Lake, nine km north of the village of Kaslo, nestled in the mountain ranges of southeastern British Columbia, Canada.  The geography is dominated by the large, pristine lake and 2000-3000m heavily forested mountains.  The area is relatively sparsely populated, and is becoming a haven for urban refugees. 

The village of Kaslo has a health centre with 4 physicians, a K-12 school, an ice arena, tennis courts and baseball diamond.  A vibrant arts community thrives, with a renowned summer jazz festival on a floating stage.

The real estate:

The practice is located in the bottom floor of a 3 storey, 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom  3600 sq ft home built in 1994.  A covered breezeway containing a hot tub and storage adjoins the house to an 800 sq ft shop with a kennel building underneath. A 1000 sq ft barn with hayloft is situated in the adjacent fenced pasture land.  The buildings are located on a 3-4 hectare parcel of land overlooking a  secluded beach on Kootenay Lake.

Please click here to see photos! photos

The practice: 

Established for 26 years, the practice serves the north end of Kootenay Lake, with the next closest practice 75 km to the south.  The practice is 95% small animal with some potential for expanded equine work in the area.  The clinic has separate bathroom, reception, exam, kennel, treatment, and surgery rooms.  Gas anaesthesia, monitors, new CBC and chemistry analyzers,and an older X-ray unit are in use.  Grooming and boarding facilities are present.  The clientele is loyal and appreciative.  Cases requiring referral can be sent to Washington State University vet teaching hospital across the border.  Two part-time assistants and a family member are currently employed.  Annual gross revenue is in the $600,000 range with a high net due to low overhead costs.

The opportunity: 

The home-based practice provides flexibility in time management, allowing a great work/life balance.  It would enable the prospective new owner to continue working while raising a family and allow the veterinary practice to be a family affair.  The area offers unparalleled and unrestricted access to outdoor recreation, with hiking, mountain biking, ATV’ing, swimming and boating in the summer and skiing, skating and snowmobiling in the winter. The current owner is planning to retire in the area and is willing to assist in the transition. The priority is to ensure that the community has continued access to veterinary services, so sale of the practice with inventory and equipment without the real estate would also be considered.
