I got a phone call from the 72-year-old man. He said: "You got big competition. A new vet opens 24 hours. Did you read the Straits Times today - half a page of advertisement?"
"No, I did not read the newspapers," I said. "There will always be competition," I said. "Younger vets open their own. There are more than 40 vet practices in Singapore now."
Much success depends on whether the vet can provide satisfactory outcomes to the owners at affordabale prices. There is a vet who tereats high end clients and difficult eye and spinal cases. He is said to be quite busy.
