Your pets deserve the best care… That is why we have AIRC trained Veterinary Assistants (VAs) to assist in the care of your pets. VAs are your pets’ "nurses". Whether they are helping your vets to draw blood from your pet, place an IV catheter, or assisting in surgery, our VAs offer your pet exceptional care. Our VAs are up to date on major developments in veterinary medicine through continuing education opportunities such as seminars, and workshops as well as regular staff meetings. It is not possible for our vets to work without the continual support from the VAs. In addition they play a vital role in translation and communication between our vets and the pet owners, whatever language you speak they are there to help you understand the pet’s treatments.

Our VAs are owners of pets of various types and breeds in different life stages. They care for their pets just as much as you love yours. Caring for pets is easier and simpler when you know your own pets are in the hands of our VAs who understand your needs and worries.

Iris Chan

Qualifications: BSc Animal and Plant Biotechnology; AIRC Cert II Veterinary Nursing.
Joined HHVC: 2010

Iris joined Hung Hom Veterinary Clinic in February 2010.  She has had a life-long dream to have a career surrounded by animals.  To fulfill her dream after coming back to Hong Kong from Canada, she started her career as a Veterinary Assistant in Stanley. After a year she moved to Hung Hom.   She has learned it is not as easy a job as she had expected!  It requires a lot of experience to be a professional caring VA and to build up her career to fulfill her dream. 

When she was small she had all sorts of pets including hamsters, rabbits, turtles and a 16 years old dog named Money.  When Money passed away recently, she became more determined to take up this position to care for other animals who need help from her.  Recently, two new members who joined her family.  They are Susie and A-mi, two lovely Scottish fold cats. 

Iris plans to take some vet nursing courses this year.  She hopes to provide her best ability to this industry and will try her best to cater for the needs of all pet owners who will visit HHVC in the future!
