Find out how to access vaccinations and veterinary care for dogs, cats and other pets in Singapore...

There are many vets across the island. All are trained in outside Singapore - Australia, the UK or the US - as the the country has no veterinary college.

Vets are licensed to practise in Singapore by the Agri-food and Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA).

Dog vaccination

Only dogs that have been imported are legally required to be vaccinated. Imported dogs need to have all vaccinations up to date, including rabies shots, no more than six months prior to arrival in Singapore.

However, it is custom to vaccinate dogs annually against:

  • Canine Corona Virus
  • Leptospirosis
  • Canine Adeno Virus
  • Distemper
  • Parainfluenza
  • Parvovirus
  • Bordetella Bronchiseptica

Cat vaccination

As with dogs, there is no law requiring cats to be vaccinated in Singapore unless they are imported, in which case they need to have all vaccinations up to date, including rabies shots.

Cats are generally vaccinated against:

  • Rhinotracheitis
  • Calicivirus
  • Panleudopenia
  • Chlamydia
  • Feline leukaemia
  • Feline infectious peritonitis
  • Rabies

The first four of the above are combined in the FVRCPC shot.
