Prof. Prof. Daniel Waweru Gakuya, Head of Department of Clinical Studies, receiving the Land Cruiser keys from Toyota Kenya officials.
Students from the Department of Clinical Studies will get to enjoy expediency in conducting ambulatory care, practical herd health studies and other field research tasks since their department has acquired a new Field Vehicle.
The vehicle, Toyota Land Cruiser 70 HZJ79R-TJMRS, is a full-time four-wheel drive brute, well-equipped to tackle tough off-road terrain, with its ample ground clearance and long-travel suspension that is capable of conquering everything from muddy trails to skull-sized rocks. That aside, it has comfortable interior and a seating capacity for up to 10 students.
This will make it possible for veterinary medicine students to conduct outpatient care, advanced medical procedures anywhere outside of hospitals on an outpatient basis, including diagnosis, observation, consultation and treatment, intervention, and rehabilitation services.
