“Education in the terms of how well you can and you should feed your pet is still lacking in Indian society. Most of the population which are very well looked after is metro cities, tier II cities and a bit of satellite areas. We, through this unique programme are trying to throw some light and knowledge on the untouched areas like how to milk can create a problem to your pet and other interesting topics” added Dr. Umesh Karkare


“Misuse of antibiotics is a very common issue with the pet owners. I would say the awareness amongst them is still lacking and National Veterinary Foundation has taken a step, in a unique way by organising VETopia every year in order to increase awareness and knowledge about Pet welfare” added Dr. Ajay Sood, Board Member, National Veterinary Foundation, New Delhi, India.
