Veterinary Assistants

Our veterinary nurses are studying veterinary nursing at various levels through a distance education programme organized by Animal Industries Resource Centre(AIRC), the Animal Industries Resource Centre in Australia and supported locally in Hong Kong. The training is provided to different levels or standards.

Certificate I in Animal Studies. An initial course designed to lay a foundation for animal care work. This covers preparing for animal care work and maintaining the animal care work place.

Certificate II in Animal Studies. The basic skills needed to prepare for a career in veterinary nursing. Subjects include Animal feeding, reception, pharmacology, customer service and workplace organization.

Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing. Structured training in nursing. Topics covered include radiology, pathology, surgical nursing, anaesthesia, medical nursing and patient care. There are also several elective courses. This course provides training in practical and technical skills relevant to the care and nursing of animals, along with the knowledge required to apply those skills in a variety of workplace situations.

In addition there are also specialised Diplomas in dental, surgical and emergency care nursing.

Veterinary Surgeons

Our vets have all undergone extensive 5 year initial training courses which qualify them to work in the UK and EU countries. They are all registered to work as veterinarians with the Hong Kong Veterinary Surgeons Board (VSB). In addition each vet maintains an active post graduate continuing professional development programme. There is a voluntary plan for each vet registered with the VSB to undergo a minimum of 35 hours study a year over a 3 year period. Our vets will each complete more than is required.
