Faculty of Veterinary Medicine proved that it is a model leader in offering veterinary medical related services by actively participating in this year’s World Rabies Day. In commemorating World Rabies Day, they succeeded in vaccinating over 500 dogs from rabies disease and castrating more than 100 dogs in Kiambu County.
With the theme 'Lets End Rabies Together' , the active participation of Kiambu County Deputy Governor, H.E Gerald Githinji, in collaboration with Veterinary Medicine students was outstanding; all joining hands and folding sleeves to ensure success in eradicating rabies in the region.
Moreover, an opportunity for sensitization on the importance of vaccination against rabies presented itself. This was done by Veterinary Medicine Students from OneHealth Club, under guidance of their patron Dr Thaiyah Andrew Gitau.
