About Us


The Animal Emergency Centre opened its doors in May 2012. It is situated on the premises of East Island Animal Hospital and is owned and managed by husband and wife team, Dr David Gething and Trilby White.

David and Trilby have a long history of providing quality veterinary services in Hong Kong. The pair launched Hong Kong's premier veterinary housecall service, Creature Comforts in 2002 followed by the opening of East Island Animal Hospital in 2003.

As Creature Comforts and East Island Animal Hospital have grown over the last decade, David and Trilby have seen the need for a dedicated after hours emergency centre, and set about providing the best possible service for the pet owners of Hong Kong. This was a return to his roots for Dr David, who started his career at a dedicated after hours practice in Australia almost 20 years ago.

We take our quality and service personally. If you have any comments or suggestions about our service, please e-mail Trilby directly at: trilby@animalemergency.com.hk.

To help streamline our services, we are uniting our practices.

The Animal Emergency Centre will become a part of East Island 24hr Animal Hospital, and you may notice we will be using the Creature Comforts logo for all of the practices. Everything else will stay the same – the same location, same management, same owners, same vets, same nurses and same dedication to our values. We at the Creature Comforts Group look forward to serving you and your pets.

Dr David Gething and all of the Creature Comforts Team.
