English-speaking vets in Taichung?

English-speaking vets in Taichung?

Postby Dr Zoidberg » 06 Mar 2007, 14:43

A few days ago a puppy moved into the lane. Unlike the cats of the past year who were all half dead by the time they wandered in, this puppy appears in tip-top shape. I would like him to stay that way, so I need to find an English-speaking vet somewhere in Taichung County.

Does anybody know of one?

I don't know one, but if you need help, I would volunteer to go with you and help translating. Our vet is located in the street that leads to the DMV, very close to Zhonggang Road. Send me a pm with your number and we can arrange a time.

Thanks for the offer. I'm going to see if I can recruit one or two of my junior high students to help, like I did when I needed new glasses. If that doesn't work out, I'll be in touch. I don't plan on keeping him, I just want to make sure he gets vaccinated and neutered.

Who can resist puppy-dog eyes? Not me, that's for sure. Making a comeback? Not likely. I simply posted a question for the puppy's sake.

Hi there,
It's very kind of you to help the animals in Taiwan.
There is a vet that we work with on ChungMay St., #276 Taichung City.
Dr. Huang speaks English and there is a vet assitant who is from America-Ian there.
This is the vet that our group work with.
If you need more info you may go on www.taichungpaws.org

I found one on in Tachia when I lived there. It was on the road near the movie theater as you go towards the train station.

I am working as a vet-tech at a place in Taichung and one of the vets does speak English pretty well. I'm there on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 9:30-2:00. They know their stuff and they do help with strays as Minou said. Just another option if you can't find anything.

not National

I have had some really bad experiences with National Veterinary Hospital, and so have others. They used to be the best, then they became big business. I don't recommend them at all.
