Dr. Sylvia Tan - BVSc(Hons I), CVA, MANZCVS(Avian)

Dr Sylvia在2014年於澳洲University of Queensland以一級榮譽畢業。在此之前她一直在新加坡生活及成長。畢業後她以小動物獸醫的身份回到新加坡並工作了三年。

在2018年,Dr Sylvia決定來到香港發展。她在香港一家私人診所及一家24小時動物福利獸醫診所執業,主要醫治貓狗,亦會為雀鳥及小動物治療。在過程中得到了很多寶貴的經驗,包括處理病危的動物、提供急診服務、主理軟組織手術、牙科及腹部超聲波檢查。 她亦有參與一些海外動物福利組織的義工服務,協助流浪貓狗絕育及為一些社區動物提供醫療服務。

Dr Sylvia 在工餘時亦積極進修,以提供最好的醫療服務給她的動物。她分別修讀了小動物腹部超聲波、牙科及內窺鏡的課程。她亦在2019年完成中獸醫學院的動物針灸課程,及於2021年成為Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists的會員,主要研究鳥類醫學及手術。

Dr Sylvia十分享受獸醫學的各個範疇,她尤其對小動物內科及鳥類醫學有著濃厚的興趣。 在她的工餘時間,她會留在家中與她領養的動物:約塞爹利狗狗及雞尾鸚鵡相處。她亦喜歡遠足及遊歷不同的地方。

Dr. Sylvia was born and raised in Singapore before she moved to Australia to pursue her veterinary degree. She graduated from the University of Queensland, Australia with first class honours in 2014. She then moved back to Singapore to work as a small animal veterinarian for three years.

In 2018, she decided to move to Hong Kong where she worked in a private clinic and a 24 hour welfare veterinary hospital. Although dogs and cats made up the majority of her patients, she was also treating birds and small mammals.

She has developed a wide and varied experience which include managing critically ill patients in hospital, attending to out of hours emergency cases, soft tissue surgery, dentistry and abdominal ultrasound. She has also volunteered with overseas animal welfare organisations to help with desexing stray dogs and cats, as well as providing veterinary treatment to the locals’ pets.

Dr. Sylvia actively participates in continuing education to improve her skills and knowledge to provide the best care for her patients. She has undergone further training in small animal abdominal ultrasound, dentistry and endoscopy. Furthermore, in 2019, she was certified in veterinary acupuncture through the Chi Institute of Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine. In 2021, she was admitted as a member of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists by examination in Avian Medicine and Surgery.

She enjoys all aspects of veterinary medicine, but has a strong interest in small animal internal medicine and avian medicine. When she is not working, she enjoys spending time with her rescue pets at home - a Yorkshire Terrier dog and a cockatiel, hiking, and travelling.
