A: It is advisable to sign-up with us via online registration. You can still try walking in at the registration counter, and we will slot you in if there are vacancies. However, we are unable to guarantee as priorities will be given to pre-registered pet owners.

Q: How would I know if my registration is successful?

A: Unfortunately, due to limited slots available, the vets can only examine one pet per owner.
