Volunteer, VETS Program

Dr. Douglas is an almost retired large animal veterinarian working in Navan, Ontario. He's been "retiring" for four years, so as he says, "I guess I’m not very good at it". Dr. Douglas has been in practice for 42 years, married for 42 years, and has two daughters and five grandchildren. He loves to eat sausages and will order any meal with sausage in it.

“After 42 years and now being practically retired, I thought it was a good time to give something back to the agricultural community. I have travelled to other countries previously and found it rewarding when providing information to livestock owners. When I was presented with this opportunity to volunteer with Veterinarians Without Borders, I felt that I have worthwhile information to share from my years of experience. I hope to be an asset to the Wakulima partner in Kenya.” - Dr. Douglas
