“I chose to be a Veterinarian instead of becoming a doctor or a dentist because of my love for animals. I believe that helping and healing these wonderful creatures, who cannot speak for themselves is my life purpose. Being a honest and an authentic veterinarian with integrity is very important to me.”- Dr Rohini Tirumala Sathish MRCVS
