Trainer's Profile

Dr Wendy Chee

Unlike many, Dr Wendy Chee did not have a childhood dream to be a veterinarian. The opening of different doors lead her to pursing the profession and she stayed. She graduated from Western Australia in 2007 and has been practising in Singapore since. She started enjoying dealing with rabbit medicine and surgery only after 2011. Since embarking on many rabbit and rodent continuing education overseas, she has met many like-minded vets and is inspired by the dedication of many small mammals specialists. Her other interests are dentistry, dermatology and ophthalmology. Being constantly hounded by 3 daughters, her negligible free time is spent with her pets, disturbing her friends so they don't forget her and some ineffectual DIY home projects.​​
