Speciality: Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine
Education: Murdoch University
Dr Jasmine Tan Kia Ming received her veterinary medical degree from Murdoch University, and has been practising small animal medicine since 2008. She has since worked in multiple small animal clinics in Singapore, treating dogs, cats, rabbits, terrapins and other small animals. Her special interest in complementary medicines led her to start learning about Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine, from TCVM renowned vets such as Dr Bruce Ferguson and Dr Tatang Cahyono.
Dr Jasmine’s years in private practice further confirmed her beliefs the limitations of conventional science in treating many health problems we see in our pets. She recognizes the importance and value of taking a holistic approach to managing disease. Dr Jasmine has completed the coursework in Acupuncture, Food Therapy, Chinese Herbal Therapy and Palliative Care from Chi Institute based in Florida, and is now well-equipped to give pets and pet owners an all-rounded TCVM approach to treating their pets.
Having seen how TCVM can improve the quality of life in many pets, Dr Jasmine is keen to introduce this modality to as many pet owners as possible in Singapore, to help more animals ease their suffering through old age and chronic conditions that have otherwise limited to no treatment options by conventional medicine. She believes that integrative medicine modalities should be made available to all pets, and plans to use TCVM as a preventative tool to identify and correct minor symptoms before a disease progresses further.
When Dr Jasmine is not helping animals or pursuing further knowledge, she enjoys spending time with her family and her 3 cats. She also spends time aside doing piano covers of the most recent English pop songs.
