With the love and care becoming significant for the animals, there is dire need of more and more veterinary doctors in the country. This was stated by Khalsa College Governing Council (KCGC) honorary secretary Rajinder Mohan Singh Chhina who presided over the `Oath Taking Ceremony’ at Khalsa College of Veterinary and Animal Sciences (KCVAS) running under the Council, here today.
More than 70 students who passed out from the College after completing their four year Bachelor of Veterinary Sciences (B.V.Sc.) took the `oath’ as professional veterinarian and vowed to serve the animal world with all care and dedication. They were elated to be part of the fourth batch to become professional veterinary doctors. After from the ceremony, the meritorious students were awarded prizes and certificates to the toppers in the University in academics and extracurricular activities.
Chhina highlighted the significance of veterinary education and said this was most noble of the professions as animal care and health is emerging as a major field throughout the world. He said the work of the veterinarian is more difficult as animals can not tell the problem being faced during illness as human can do and doctors have to identify the symptoms and take help of the minute diagnosis. Chhina also inaugurated the month long plantation drive initiated at the College by planting a sapling at the campus. The sapling was donated by the students who were passing out from the institution as a gift and a Eco Club was also constituted today to plant maximum trees. The College also organized its 1st Alumini meet where Dr. S.K Jand the former Principal of KCVAS was honored.
KCVAS is the only running and approved veterinary college in private sector across the country following Center government approving the institution and boasts of its ultra-modern, state of the art veterinary hospital at village Mahal on the outskirts of the city. Dr Sidhu congratulated the students, coming from all over the country, for completing their five years programs with flying colors and taking oath to become veterinarian.
