CityU acquires prestigious veterinary clinic 
 

Dear colleagues, students and alumni, 
 

City University of Hong Kong (CityU) is pleased to announce that the University has acquired full ownership of the Peace Avenue Veterinary Clinic (PAVC), a leading veterinary clinic in Hong Kong, starting from 1 September 2016. It will be used as a veterinary clinic by the School of Veterinary Medicine (SVM). The acquisition is a strategic investment for CityU as well as for veterinary medicine and animal welfare in Hong Kong. 
 

“The prestigious Peace Avenue Veterinary Clinic has an impressive history of quality animal care service,” said Professor Way Kuo, CityU President. “The Clinic will play a significant role in the development of SVM.” 
 

CityU’s vision is to build a university clinic similar to those at top veterinary schools in Australia and the US where excellence in veterinary education goes hand in hand with first-rate customer service.  
 

“Exciting new and cutting edge specialties will be added in phases in response to the dramatic changes taking place in veterinary medicine in Hong Kong and the world, to ensure that we meet current and future needs for more varied services,” said Professor Michael Reichel, Dean of SVM.  
 

Established in March 2014 in collaboration with Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine, SVM aims to become a centre of excellence in Hong Kong by contributing to the highest standards of animal health care and veterinary teaching, research and service in Asia, with particular emphasis on emerging infectious diseases, food safety, animal welfare and aquatic production.

城大購入知名獸醫診所 
 

各位同事、同學及校友: 
 

香港城市大學(城大)宣佈,由2016年9月1日起,城大將全權擁有太平道寵物診所。該診所在本地業界具領導地位,之後將作為城大動物醫學診所的一部分。此項策略性投資將為城大、香港動物醫學及動物福利帶來莫大裨益。 
 

城大校長郭位教授說:「太平道寵物診所多年來提供優質動物護理服務,聲譽卓著。診所對城大動物醫學院的發展將擔當重要角色。」 
 

城大的願景是像澳洲及美國等國家的頂級獸醫學院一樣,建設一所兼顧卓越教育與優質服務的大學動物醫學診所。 
 

動物醫學院院長Michael Reichel教授說:「診所將分階段增設嶄新、先進的專科,以配合本地以至全球動物醫學專業的重大變化,確保我們能回應現時及未來社會的需求,提供更多不同種類的服務。」 
 

城大動物醫學院由城大與美國康奈爾大學動物醫學院於2014年3月合作創辦,旨在成為香港卓越的動物醫學中心,提升亞洲區內的動物保健、動物醫學教育、研究及服務水平,當中以新興傳染病、食品安全、動物福利及水產養殖為發展重點。
