While talking about veterinary practice in India – Dr. Girish would like to see more multi-speciality clinics and hospitals established for pet treatment. “I would also like to see them on par with clinics and hospitals abroad”. “As awareness amongst pet parents increases, so does the need for advanced veterinary treatment” he says. Continuing the conversation, Dr. Girish also chimes in with a certain amount of hopefulness that he would like to see tier 2 cities have more veterinary clinics and holistic treatment being provided to pets in these cities. “It should no longer be treated as a rudimentary form of practice and people in these cities should also experience high quality treatment for their pets”.
