During her time at the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA) and subsequently the Animal and Veterinary Service (AVS), a cluster under National Parks Board in Singapore, she worked for 4 years as a veterinarian in the national animal health laboratory, where she focused on terrestrial and aquatic animal health, disease diagnosis and pathology.

She became a World Aquatic Veterinary Medical Association (WAVMA) Certified Aquatic Veterinarian (CertAqV) in 2020.

Dr. Denyse has also held concurrent appointments as a shelter veterinarian and wildlife veterinarian, focusing on the veterinary healthcare and behavioural rehabilitation of a range of companion animal species, including cats, birds, dogs and small mammals, as well as treating and rehabilitating wildlife. As part of her work in AVS, she was involved in the inspection and regulation of laboratories, research, vaccines and veterinary biologics. Dr. Denyse was also a member of the Veterinary Biologics Committee that looks at the approval and regulatory affairs of veterinary vaccines.

She is passionate about education and has experience as an adjunct lecturer and associate trainer with tertiary institutes in the areas of aquatic health and disease management, animal health and disease, as well as anatomic pathology.

Dr. Denyse was a member of the working groups that developed the ‘Singapore Vaccination Guidelines for Dogs and Cats’ published in 2020, and the ‘Guidelines for Prudent Use of Antimicrobials in Companion Animals’, published in 2021. She also was the main author of the article ‘Food Safety Impacts of Finfish and Crustacean Aquaculture on Food Security in Asia’, published in the OIE (World Animal Health Organisation) Scientific and Technical Review in 2019, and was an author of the article ‘Detection and Characterisation of a Novel Marine Birnavirus isolated from Asian Seabass in Singapore’, published in Virology Journal in 2019.

With a strong belief in continuing education, Dr. Denyse obtained her certification as a Fear Free® Veterinary Professional and the Cat Friendly Veterinary Certification by the American Association of Feline Practitioners in 2021 and continues to incorporate these concepts in all interactions with animals.
