Why are you a Veterinary Doctor?
Growing up in the 90s, I’d drank from the same water source as cattle, sheep, goats and dogs in Zomzomno village of Zuru LGA, Kebbi State, with my grandfather. One of the advantages of being a Veterinarian is possessing the knowledge and ability to bridge the gap between animal and human health.
Do you support meat consumption?
Yes, I do. As a source of protein, meat free from diseases and drug residues is important to the proportional growth and mental wellbeing of man.
