Looking for advice for Vet Career

Postby buggy.88 » Tue, 02 May 2017 7:45 pm

Hi, I'm a Singaporean and helping my girlfriend do some research.

She's a Vet having acquired her degree in a Chinese university. Has a few years of experience and is currently practicing in China. I think AVA will almost definitely not recognize her degree. So if she moves here, she'll take a big hit career-wise.

I'm not a vet, I have very little knowledge of the industry here besides what I get from reading the official websites (AVA, SVA). I would like to find out prospects for her vet career if she moves, and what is needed to qualify as a vet in the future. Also, I greatly appreciate if any supportive vets here can help.

Thank you.

Why move here? China is a much better prospect for both of you I suspect.

Hi - I don't respond to PM's of general interest.

To answer the questions in your PM though I would suggest you visit some local vets. Have a talk to them - it's possible that your S/O may be able to requalify or work as a vet assistant. Another field to consider is sales (of veterinary products). Her background would be very useful in that field but she does not need a formal qual.

The market for Vets is pretty tight, most vets ending up as assistants in Pet shop and such !

After all, there's no so-called farming in Singapore, other than the few poultry farms and that's about it.

Malaysia has a better demand.
