Vet Help @ Noah's Ark with Dr Dennis Choi and Dr Eric Yeoh

31 August 2015 - Returning back to the animals.

Helping and speaking for those who cannot speak for themselves.

"It is not enough to be compassionate. You must act."

 Dr Dennis Choi of Mount Pleasant Veterinary Centre at Gelenggang and Dr Eric Yeoh of Animal World Veterinary Clinic was at Noah's Ark for a short 3 days getaway to indulge in their cycyling activities around Johor.

For a free and easy stay at the sanctuary nothing comes without an obligation.  Dr Choi did a femoral head osteotomy (FHO) on a stray dog with a dislocated and fractured femoral head.


Their compassion and professional support brought the sanctuary to a greater height and with their help thus the street animals received.  Without the gratis participation of these veterinarians it would probably be necessary once again to euthanise such cases, because of insufficient salaried staff to care for them and sufficient funds to get the vets to help them.

Setting off for their well deserved break.

Greatly appreciated by Raymund Wee.

VetHelp @ Noah's Ark

The ambitious project to spay to spay as many strays we hope too, is no easy feat as each surgical procedure requires a lot of time and concentration to be done properly. As such, Noah’s Ark has opened its doors to both vet students and volunteer veterinarians from Singapore, Malaysia and other countries.  These vet students come in as part of their internship to assist Raymund in diagnosing the daily vet work and cases that pass through the clinic.  

Volunteer veterinarians contribute their free time to assist in more complicated veterinarian procedures. We are very appreciative for both such contributions as their efforts have been most beneficial for our programs and to all our animals. We know that such hard work and dedication by both these groups is due to their common love and compassion for the animals. 

The students appreciate Raymund for demonstrating to them the various spay techniques. He displayed much patience despite their sometimes clumsy attempts, encouraging them to persevere and rewarding their  hard work by cooking delicious meals during their attachment. 

They believe that their experience at Noah’s Ark was extremely rewarding and do hope more people will be inspired to do what they have done. By partaking in the important job of sterilizing the stray population, they have been able to make a difference to the lives of these animals.
