Hello

BIRTH CERTIFICATE FOR MINIATURE SCHNAUZERS

I am Dr Sing Kong Yuen who answered your phone call and did not understand what you wanted before you sent this email.

I am a vet at Toa Payoh Vets. The birth certificate is never kept by the vet because the breeder or seller is the one who is responsible for the registration of the puppy. The vet just vaccinate the puppy and that is the vaccination certificate issued by the vet (as you have emailed the image).

As it costs money to register the dog with the Singapore Kennel Club, nearly 99% of Singapore's dog breeders and sellers do NOT phone the SKC to send its people to go to the kennels, examine the puppy and previous pedigree certificates if any. After that, the SKC may issue a "birth certificate". This birth certificate costs the breeder and sellers money and 99% of the buyers usually does NOT want to pay this amount of money to buy the puppy with the birth certificate. Therefore, most puppy Sellers (except professional dog show champion breeders or those specialists in breeding certain breeds at premium prices) don't register the birth of the puppy and the vaccination certificate is the document which will show the date of birth and details of the puppy.   

I hope this information helps you to understand the industry practice of selling puppies in Singapore. You can phone me 9668 6468 or email if you wish to know more info.

  1. Dr. Sing Kong, can you tell me what is the use of these birth certificates? Are you using birth records to manage their data? Now from your post, I aware about the puppies selling in Singapore.
