Expats usually treat their pets as members of the family. They seek the very best care for their pets when they are ill or need medical attention. Therefore, here is a compilation of vets in Shanghai who have Western training, speak English, but are probably more expensive than local Chinese vets.
It is important that veterinarian care is provided by a properly trained veterinarian with a Western University veterinary science degree. At a minimum, the vet caring for your pet should have a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM), a Bachelor of Veterinary Science (BVSc.) or equivalent Western degree. Local Chinese vet training and licensing standards are inadequate. Veterinary technician/assistant training also does not meet Western vet care standards. The vets listed below should treat your pets with Western-standard levels of expertise.
