Hong Kong Animal Clinics

Caring for your pet while in Hong Kong is in some respects different than if you have moved to HK from a colder country. Hong Kong is extremely humid during the summer months so you will need to take extra care to ensure your dog and other pets do not suffer from being left in a very hot room or car. Additionally, when you walk your dog in HK, be sure that you provide plenty of water. Overheating can cause death.

When you land in Hong Kong with your pet, identify a veterinarian as soon as possible. You do not want to leave this until your pet is ill and then start scrambling around for a referral. Visit one of the vet clinics listed below, ask friends or colleagues in HK or make use of the Expat Dog Walkers and Pet Owners forum. The first thing you will want to do once you have identified a good vet clinic is make sure your pet is up to date on vaccinations.

Be sure to provide your pet with a healthy living environment including quality pet food that is suitable for their age, size and breed. Cheap pet food is made with low quality ingredients and is not a good idea. You will also want to ensure that you do not over or under feed your dog, cat or other pet. This can lead to health problems including obesity and shorten the lifespan of your pet. Avoid giving your dog table scraps and be aware that some common foods can actually kill a dog including chocolate, macadamia nuts, caffeine, avocado, coffee, alcohol, raisins, grapes, raw eggs, chives, garlic, xylitol, onions, milk, salt, and raw bones.

Good dental health is important to your pet, particularly dogs. Make sure to visit your vet or a pet shop and purchase a dental kit for dogs. And please don’t feed your dog sweets as that will lead to dental decay (and big vet bills!) since dogs teeth are not usually brushed on a daily basis.

If your dog has not already been spayed or neutered, we recommend you visit your veterinarian and have that procedure taken care of.

You may also consider taking out insurance for your pet. Kwiksure, a HK insurance broker, can recommend a solid policy. If you need to relocate your pet when you leave Hong Kong, we can recommend these companies.
