WHY A PET REHABILITATION CENTRE
REHABVET exists to bring in alternative support therapies for animals here in Singapore. We are the first pet centre that is a full fledged animal rehabilitation centre with practitioners trained by University of Tennessee.
The only options available in Singapore were Veterinarian medical care that consist mainly of surgeries, NSAID and pain management drugs. We had a husky that needed more than that.
After visiting Youtube and learning from the experience of Veterinarians majoring in canine rehabilitation, our husky started walking. We knew immediately that Singapore is lacked of rehabilitation and physiotherapy care for our pets.
We immediately assembled a team of experienced veterinarian nurses and send them over to University of Tennessee to be trained as CCRP (Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioners) and invited the top Canine Hydrotherapy trainers to Singapore to train the remaining team.
Embracing the world’s best and top complementary medical devices and our trainned therapist, we started Singapore first and only full canine rehabilitation centre.

Animal Rehabilitation Therapist
Since she was young, Kass has always set her mind on working with animals in the future. Her passion and love for animals has made her to do whatever in her power to help and be their voice. Having graduated with Bachelor of Arts Psychology, she hopes to use it as a stepping stone to study animal behavior in future. She believes, like humans, individual animals react to different situations differently but unlike us, they aren’t able to voice it out and the best way to help them is to first understand them.

Chee Yen BSC (Hons)
Yen has formerly been a competent physiotherapist, graduated from Malaysia. She has worked for several years locally gaining experience in both government and private practice in Malaysia until she ventures to work in Singapore.
Being an avid dog lover with a deep profound love for furry animals, once she discovers about canine rehabilitation in Singapore, she made crucial decision to be in this field. Unlike humans, animals cannot voice out directly how they are feeling about experiencing pain or discomfort, so she believes that there is a dire demand in animal therapy and found her calling in animal rehabilitation.
Yen regretted to be late and lacked of awareness regarding canine rehabilitation as her beloved dog which had difficulty in mobility passed on without getting the opportunity to be treated through rehabilitation. With the motivation driven by the lost of her furry buddy, she sets her goal to pour out efforts in providing rehabilitation care to alleviate pain of the dogs and improve the lives of animals.
Her prior background in human physiotherapy experiences enables her to relate animal’s condition to human and therefore tailor specific rehabilitation exercises and treatment for each of her patients.
