Hi,

My name is Huong and I come from Vietnam.

I am working on a school project about animal hospital, particullarly focus on facilties, and operation of an animal hospital. My assignment aims to write about situation and operation of animal hospital in the region and may give some suggestion for improvement in animal hospital that I know. I have looked for information on internet but not yet found much. Could you help me with this info ??? , PLS. Any one who work at , or know something about animal hospital, please give me some understanding.I would highly appriciate.

Thank you and wish your pet are always healthy.

Huong.

Hi Huong,

Welcome to Thaivisa's pet forum. :o

For your questions you could contact Bambina (who you can find through the member list). She is this forum's vet and has her own animal hospital in Bangkok for years.

Another option is to check the links to hospitals in this pinned subject, or the following link:

Wishing you good luck with your project. :D

.... Finally I found a great vet on Phuket that specialises in reptiles. I've taken "her" to him and he has kept her in the surgery for the care she needs. ....

Well actually, I don't want to say anything bad about anyone but I thought you should know. I used to go to doctor Maytee since 1994 (his vet practice wasn't here yet) and I've always had more or less good experience with him. But I've changed vet for a couple of years now cuz I don't know about the woman doctor.

Once my dog had this really huge bump on her waist - the size of a golf ball. I took her to the doctor and she took one look at it and told me to go home said it was nothing just come back when it gets bigger....nothing? its the size of a golf ball!! So still not satisfied, I took her to Kasetsart University (for you expats, the university animal hospital clinics are always satisfactory ex: Chula, Kasetsart, Mahidol...but there's a very long wait :o ). Anyhow, the doctor there told me that the bump was in fact, from an infection and said there was no way that the woman doctor could know unless she took some example and had it tested (which she didn't). So my dog healed quite quickly from the meds she was given. I've never went back to that vet practice again because of other little incidents too that made me wary of them. Plus...they overcharge. So now I see Dr.Attaporn, his vet practice is in front of SoiArisumphan 3. He's great!

Its amazing how character asassination happens on websites. If you went to Dr. Maytee for all this time, why would you bring your pet to see someone else there? My cats are like my children, and he is the only person there I would think of seeing them. He saved one cats life when an animal hospital, that I will leave unnamed, wanted to take the very old, high strung cat in for a week of observation and tests. I don't think he would have survived. Dr. Maytee made a house call and told me to feed him certain cat food and give him vitamin paste. That was a year ago and the cat is fine. Also, when he comes to see them they all go right up to him. (Even one time after he took one cat's blood).

I love the "other little incidents". Powerful arguement there. There were many times he could have done many other services which I asked about, but he said were unnecessary.

l am about 100 k's from Udon Thanni ,,, l take my german shepherd to a vet there , they are always concerned but not that helpful ,, a bit like Thai doctors in the country ,, like to give a lot of pills and take blood samples for worms ,,,,the problem l have now is he (the dog) has a has some sort of infection in his foot ,, namely in the toe nail which is causing the lower leg and foot to swell ,, the vet looked at it but did not inspect it ,, took the usual blood samples and said a worm could cause it ( rubbish ) ,, l would like to know if someone in the Udon area can recommend a good vet ,, as many of you will understand ,, he (the dog again ) is much much more than just a dog and l want the best for him ,,,,,

thanks and cheers

[Hi do you happen to know of any expat vets in BKK? or any thai practices where they speak a lot of english? im looking for vet work in BKK and would really like to speak to a vet there about it...

Hello,

I arrived in Bangkok 5 months ago from Dubai with 2 dogs and 3 cats. Initially my pets were kenelled at the Ari Pet Hospital. The vet there speaks very good English and does house calls. Dr Ari. I am now using a vet closer to where I live at the Thong Lor pet hospital which is a 24 hour place. The vet I use there is very good and speaks very good English.

What is the status of veterinary care in Thailand? I know that standards of animal care are a little different there than in the US/Aus/western Europe, but are there many good vets? Will they make house calls? (I'm probably not going to have a car for a while). What can I expect to pay for a visit?

I use the Thong Lor Pet Hospital in Bangkok. Very happy with them and several of the vets speak extremely good English.

the best place i found was ari pet hospital - the guy there is US trained knows his stuff and better than all the ones in Thonglor in my (substantial) experience. The problem i see in Thailand is the vets here tend to misdiagnose, dont do all the proper tests and prescribe too many drugs for too long. Same in the medical profession.

Had anyone their pets spayed in Pattaya? Or ever heard of succesful experience?

I need to spay my little cat.

I kind of don't trust Animal Hospital at Nuern Plurb Warn, as they told me that a cat can be spayed and vaccinated in one day.

Hi, as long as your cat is healthy there is no contraindication to vaccinate her at the same time. The only problem is that the immunity given from the vaccination takes a couple of weeks to achieve. If there are other sick cats in the hospital at the same time she could contract the disease before her vaccination protects her.

Check on the type of anesthesia used and post operative pain killer administered too.

I don't practice here in Thailand and do not know anyone to recommend you to in Pattaya. I leave this to the local residents. Word of mouth is your best assurance.

Good luck

I wish anyone writes about real experience with spaying here, because my cat gets me crazy. She's becoming quite insane last days.

I can tell you now about the clinic I used to spay a cat. It was Muang Ake Animal Hospital near Tesco Lotus, further to Sattahip less than 1 km, same side of Sukhumvit. We brought a cat at 9 o'clock, the operation was set of 11 am, and we were suggested to take a cat when she wakes up and so on, around 6 pm, so a doctor can watch her for a little after the operation. We took her back a bit earlier, before 5. She was ok, these guys even used the eye drops to make it easier for her. Her belly was shaven, with a medium bandage, no shirt. She recovered after surgery quite fast, we hadn't any problems (at least yet). Soon we will remove the only stitch. The cat didn't like the bandage, but other than that she is fine.

I liked that clinic more than Nuern Plurb Warn, it's more spacious, clean and bright, have bigger assortment of food and accessories, big rooms, additional space for pets. Doctors speak English well enough. And service isn't expensive.

We removed stitch today, and I met a woman at the Hospital, who had spayed her two cats and a dog in the same place. She told me about really sad experience, as her other two cats died after in two days being spayed in Nurn Plurb Warn. I really wish you'd be careful.
