East Island 24hr Animal Hospital, the largest hospital of the Creature Comforts group, is looking for a vet who loves the excitement & satisfaction of Emergency & Critical Care medicine to join us. You would be supported by our team of over 80 staff including vets, nurses and technicians, plus the opportunity to significantly enhance your own veterinary capabilities and skills.
Work-Life Balance in a Rewarding Position at the Animal Emergency Centre in Hong Kong.
East Island 24hr Animal Hospital acts as the headquarters for the Creature Comforts Group practices, receiving a diverse and interesting caseload from our group branch practices, as well as a significant number of cases from referring practices.
We strongly support professional and personal development in areas that interest you, such as our in-house veterinary ultrasound accreditation training program (abdominal and cardiac echo), orthopaedic and soft tissue surgery, endoscopy, and critical care medicine, allowing you to gain confidence and proficiency. Many of our vets have gone on to develop their own special-interest niche areas within our practices.
It’s a good and well-equipped animal hospital I can trust. The fact that it’s open 24/7 really gives me the peace of mind. My doggie is well taken care of in his every visit to the vet. He still doesn’t enjoy seeing the vet, but at least we as his owners feel much less nervous with the professional and friendly staff there. – Andy Cheng (Google Review)
