About Us

Sai Kung Animal Hospital is one of Sai Kung’s oldest vet clinics. It was previously owned by Hong Kong Vets Services Ltd. and has had a recent change of ownership. Although the website and logo have changed, our hospital is still the same. Our familiar, experienced team will continue to provide the very best care to your beloved pets.

Our Clinic

Located in the centre of Sai Kung, our spacious hospital has ample room for separate cat and dog hospital areas. This reduces stress and helps your pet to relax and concentrate on healing.

We have an in-house laboratory, digital radiography, ultrasonography and hospitalisation facilities. Our team has worked both locally and internationally. We prioritise ongoing professional development and keeping up with the latest medical and surgical techniques. Our veterinary and nursing staff at SKAH regularly attend local and international conferences and online courses.

We value our nursing team. Their years of dedicated service and quality of care means your pet is always handled with professionalism and compassion.

Meet the Team

Dr Genevieve Touzel


Chief Veterinary Surgeon

At seven years of age, I was overjoyed when my parents introduced a mongrel pup, Marcel-Louis. He became my best friend. Realising how much I wanted to care for him and every other needy animal I could find, I decided to pursue a career in veterinary medicine.  There was never any other alternative. I was thrilled to be offered a place at The University of Melbourne Veterinary School. I graduated in 1999 and I embarked on an adventurous journey of all things veterinary. Over the last 21 years I have worked as a veterinarian in the United Kingdom and Australia with the last five years working in Hong Kong.

I have gained experience in mixed practice and small animal practice, dental, greyhound and equine practice. My work has also included working in emergency and critical care hospitals. Most recently I have held the position of Head Veterinary Surgeon at an SPCA branch practice in Hong Kong. I have completed post graduate studies in Emergency and Critical Care.  My passion for improving the quality of life in senior pets and practicing holistic medicine inspired me to pursue and acquire a board certification in Veterinary Acupuncture.

It is a privilege to be trusted with the care of someone’s beloved animal. After many years, I still love the way medicine evolves. Seeing the difference that preventative health care and treatment makes to the longevity and well-being of my patients is wonderful. It is a team effort. Working with families is also paramount in making a successful care plan. Every animal (and their humans!) are unique.

He finally had the opportunity to go to Liverpool University and study to be a vet and after graduating spent a year as an intern at Glasgow University specialising in small animal medicine and surgery.

He always had a passion for Hong Kong culture and moved here in 2006, working in general practice and also a period doing emergency and critical care. He has also worked at the SPCA.

He has a post graduate qualification in Osteopathy and is interested in physical therapy and how to improve the quality of life of old animals.
