Betty Chow
Veterinary Specialist BVM&S, MRCVS, DACVIM

Dr. Betty Chow grew up in Hong Kong, and received her veterinary degree from the University of Edinburgh, Scotland in 2010. She spent time in Hong Kong working under a VIN feline consultant before pursuing a small animal rotating internship at the University of Glasgow, Scotland from 2012-2013. She then flew across the pond for an internal medicine/oncology specialty internship at Mississippi State University from 2013-2014, and an internal medicine specialty internship at BluePearl Veterinary Partners in Grand Rapids, Michigan from 2014-2015, before starting her internal medicine residency at the Veterinary Specialty Hospital of San Diego in 2015-2018.

Dr. Chow enjoys many aspects of internal medicine, but has special interests in feline medicine, gastroenterology, and clinical nutrition. She is actively involved in clinical research and continues to publish in the field of small animal gastroenterology (which includes the gastrointestinal tract, pancreas, and hepatobiliary systems). Dr. Chow is a member of the Comparative Gastroenterology Society, as well as the Mars Petcare GI Health Working Group, working to improve the knowledge of veterinary gastroenterology through research and education. She is also a volunteer member for the credentials committee of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (ACVIM).

In her free time, she is an avid traveler and hiker. When she's at home, she gets bossed around by her very demanding cat named Tux, who adopted her in Glasgow.
