Mount Pleasant Animal Medical Centre (Clementi)

Mount Pleasant Animal Clinic Medical Centre (2004) Pte Ltd (Clementi)

In 1996, Dr Tan Hwa Luck’s original veterinary practice, Veterinary Surgery, had to be moved from Goodwood Road to Sunset Way and became known as the West Clinic. An interesting fact about this clinic is that it has had its name revamped four times - from Animal Medical Centre, to Mount Pleasant Animal Clinic (West), Mount Pleasant Animal Medical Centre, before settling on its current name - Mount Pleasant Animal Medical Centre Pte Ltd in 2004.

Since Dr Quek works at this clinic, many pets with skin ailments visit us regularly. And since many pets in Singapore are plagued with skin issues, there’s always a never-ending string of itchy patients with their caregivers waiting for consultation. Since its establishment at this new location, the clinic’s case load, members of staff and facilities have expanded. Services have improved and multiplied over the years, making us as self-reliant as can be contained within these premises.
