Dr Willian Chan
BSc., BVMS (Hons) Murdoch
MANZCVS (Small Animal Medicine)

Dr William Chan graduated from Murdoch University in Australia with 1st class honours, and has been working in Singapore since 2007. He thoroughly enjoys all aspects of small animal internal medicine and soft tissue surgery, and has pursued post-graduate training in endocrinology, medical neurology, gastroenterology, cardio-respiratory medicine, and ultrasonography. He is currently pursuing his Masters of Veterinary Medicine from Massey University New Zealand.

Dr Chan firmly believes that every patient should be treated as though they are his own pet, and veterinary students and colleagues that have worked with him will always remember his favourite mentoring phrase: “What would you do if this was your pet?” By influencing his professional team with this motto, he finds that all actions and decisions made are inevitably in the best interests of his patients.

Outside of work, Dr Chan is an avid competitive ballroom dancer, a sport in which he has been participating with his wife (and fellow veterinarian) since their vet school days. Their family is completed by Baki and Otah, slightly overweight cats which they adopted while studying in Australia.

Dr Rachael Kilroy
BVM&S, CertSAS, MRCVS

Dr Rachael Kilroy graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 2002. She first worked as a volunteer vet in Morocco before returning to mixed practice in the UK. After a year dealing with everything from cows and horses to chickens and hamsters (and even a dolphin thrown in for variety!), she decided to concentrate her efforts on small animal surgery.

In 2009, she gained the RCVS certificate in small animal surgery, a Masters-level qualification. After achieving this qualification, she took charge of a large clinic in London, responsible for over 13,000 patients per year, and, as lead surgeon, carried out a wide range of advanced surgery cases. She continues to keep on top of the latest developments in the field through attendance at international surgery congresses and regular journal reading. In addition, she has also spoken at several UK veterinary conferences.

Outside of work, she is a keen cyclist and runner, but also loves walking her lovely dog, Molly, along the beach!
