Foreign Consultant Veterinarian


Dr. Zenithson Ng is very excited to join the ICVS team as a foreign veterinary consultant. Born and raised in northern New Jersey of the United States, he has known his entire life that his calling was to become a veterinarian. Dr. Ng received his Bachelor’s of Science degree from Rutgers University with a major in animal science and minor in equine science. He earned his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree from Cornell University and completed a rotating internship in small animal medicine and surgery at the Bergh Memorial Animal Hospital of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) in New York City. Dedicating his life to improving animal and human health, Dr. Ng has worked with a wide variety of animals in many different settings. He has conducted research in equine exercise physiology, reproductive neurophysiology, circadian behavior, pet identification, and veterinary communications. He also has a special interest in the dynamic relationship between humans and animals and the healing power of pets, which has given him the opportunity to work for Pets Are Wonderful Support (PAWS), a nonprofit organization committed to providing for the special needs of underprivileged, immunocompromised, and disabled people and their pets. Dr. Ng has worked with the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) Governmental Relations Division, delving into legislation and policy regarding veterinary medicine in Washington, DC. He is a certified equine massage therapist and has lectured and developed practical teaching seminars regarding llama, alpaca, and swine health and husbandry. Aside from his focus on the human-animal bond, animal assisted therapy, and communications, Dr. Ng’s professional interests include internal medicine, oncology, preventive health, and shelter medicine. He enjoys the beach, water sports, horseback riding, exploring new cities, and baked goods.
