Animal World Clinic team; “Timmy” the TV Superstar…

Animal World Veterinary Clinic adopted Timmy in 2015 when his ex-owner took him to another veterinary clinic to have him put him down because he had a skin problem and worsening arthritis.

On hearing this, we immediately decided to adopt him and our expert staff began to treat him. Fortunately, Timmy has now put on considerably more weight and his skin condition is continuing to respond to treatment.
We also apply many different elements of veterinary physiotherapy to help ease his arthritis and we’re delighted to say that he has improved a lot.

In fact, he has improved so much that on Valentine’s Day in 2016, he made his National TV acting debut in a Mediacorp Channel 5 TV movie called “Love Machine”. You can catch a glimpse of Timmy’s incomparable acting style around 50 seconds into the short clip on the Channel 5 Facebook page by clicking the link.

He also joined a charity group called “Healing Paw” under SOSD, and as a result, he now goes to children’s homes and hospitals to act as a therapy dog for the residents and patients.

All our customers love Timmy and he has a very good nature. Still, he’s not perfect! He can be greedy with his food if allowed to be, but he’s not allowed to be! Of course, we have to control his weight because of his arthritis, and equally obviously, we do.

But come to meet our canine superstar anytime you’re in the area – we’ll all be delighted to see you, including Timmy (fame hasn’t gone to his head yet!)

Don't Be Shy. Get In Touch.

If you are interested in working together, send us an inquiry and we will get back to you as soon as we can!
