The CityU Eminence Society (CES) with supported of Alumni Relations Office, the Society organized a visit to CityU’s teaching and learning facilities for veterinary education – Peace Avenue Veterinary Clinic (PAVC) and Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory (VDL) on 23rd June 2018 (Saturday). I would like to share the whole trip and happy moment. We took a group photo inside PAVC.
We started our trip in CityU University Circle and took a shuttle bus to go to the PAVC.
Dr. Howard Wong (Director, Centre for Animal Welfare, College of Veterinary Medicine and Life Science) led us to visit the clinic.
Dr. Silvan Sung (COO, CityU PAVC) was responsible for the visit to PAVC and welcome all of us.
Before we went to the meeting room, we observed many dogs and cats that were weighting and registration.
Then Dr. Silvan Sung introduced the background of PAVC. The clinic is operated for 24x7 and 365 day. They have largest team of professionals in veterinary clinic in Hong Kong and totally 172 staff. They have 38 veterinary doctors in which 14 doctors are specialist.
After that we visited different clinic areas
Animal health inspection in Cat Room. Cat needs silent environment so the Cat Room needs acoustic insulation design.
For large dogs, they has tailor-made large case with all facilities.
Finally, we visited MR Room (Magnetic Resonance) and CT Scan Room (Computed Tomography).
At the end of CityU PAVC visit, Minda and I took a photo with Dr. Silvan Sung for memory.
Dr. Rocky Lam and I also took a photo with Dr. Howard Wong before go to the VDL.
We then arrived the Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory.
We needed to change lab coat before enter the VDL. Little girl visitor (Sophie Yeung) is very happy to dress the small size lab coat.
Firstly, Dr. Yorkee Leung (Veterinary Services Support Coordinator) introduced the work flow and led us to visit the sample room. Samples received from clinics should be identified through label and recording their information.
And then we visited Histopathology Lab. Dr. Leung showed the specimen needed for wax solidification treatment and then cut into thin film for staining and microscopic inspection.
After that we visited Post Mortem Room (驗屍室) in which did the animal necropsy (屍體剖檢).
For bacteria identification, Dr. Leung introduced new equipment MALDI/TOF which could identification of bacterial pathogens or fungi within several hours.
The last laboratory we visited was for animal blood test.
At the end, we took a group photo inside the laboratory (because of raining outside).
During the lunch, Dr. Gary Cheng (Chairman, CityU Eminence Society) thanked Dr. Howard Wong and Dr. Silvan Sung for this visit arrangement and presented souvenir to them. CityU Eminence Society committee members took a photo with Dr. Howard Wong and Dr. Silvan Sung.
