Veterinary Surgeon

Dr Boon graduated in 2001 from The Royal Veterinary College (RVC), London, UK, going straight to work thereafter for a small animal clinic in the UK. After which, Dr. Boon practiced with Mount Pleasant Animal Hospital here in Singapore.


With a passion to learn and looking to improve her abilities further,

Dr. Boon pursued a Small Animal Surgery Internship in the United States, accepting a position as an Accident and Emergency Clinician at NorthStar VETS, New Jersey, subsequently for 2 years, before returning to home to Singapore in 2009.

 

The provision of exceptional service and progressive medical care to her patients is the cornerstone of Dr. Boon’s clinical philosophy, coupled with nurturing the potential of the nursing team to the highest potential.

 

She holds a robust belief that open communication with clients provides for healthier medical understanding, thus empowering the client to make improved decisions on behalf of their pets. Dr. Boon continues to embrace Small Animal Medicine and Surgery and is certified (University of Sydney,‎ 2015) in the provision of Ultrasonography.

 

When not working at Town Vets, Dr. Boon enjoys wakeboarding, cycling, rock climbing, as well as spending time with her husband and dog Sasha.

Dr. Darlene Lauw
BVSc, BSc(Hons)(S'pore), BVMS(Murdoch),  GPCert (SAM) (DL)
Veterinary Surgeon

Dr Lauw graduated from Murdoch University in Perth, Western Australia in 2004. Since graduation, she has worked in various small animal practices, in full-time positions as well as a locum. Prior to her veterinary degree, she attained an Honours degree in Biological Science (Zoology) from the National University of Singapore. 

 

She has many interests in many areas, for as a general practitioner veterinarian, she believes that varied competence is important. Nonetheless, dermatology and internal medicine are disciplines that take up more of her attention, as they form a majority of caseloads. 

She has attended various courses and seminars, the latest being a post-graduate advanced general practitioner certificate in Small Animal Medicine in 2022 from the International School of Veterinary Postgraduate Studies, with Harper Adams University. She is looking forward to furthering her learning path to higher qualifications, so as to stay abreast of current and rapidly evolving tenets of veterinary medicine. 

Her practice philosophy is that it takes teamwork to provide optimal veterinary care – that of the veterinarian and the nurses, and the family members of the pet. She is keenly aware of the joy, as well as the challenges, of pet ownership during different seasons of the pet’s life. As such, helping the family navigate these various periods with sound veterinary knowledge, clear communication and utmost compassion, is what she endeavors to do. 
 
Outside of the clinic, she is kept busy taming her garden which is fast becoming a jungle with too many plant purchases, and trying to get her rescue cat out of said jungle. She also enjoys watching anime very much, with her kids and husband and her other cat, a grand old dame who rules the home.
