This week Veterinary Ramblings is joined by the fantastic Janika Patel.

Janika is a British-Indian Vet born and raised in South London. After graduating from Nottingham Vet School, she worked in independent practice and Vets4Pets. During her career, she has developed a keen interest in ECG and hospital practice after working at a clinic with its own Out Of Hours service. She is currently locumming in the midlands while deciding where to settle down in the UK.

We discuss how her uncle inspired her to become a vet and the importance of representation for people of colour in the veterinary industry. She also shares with us some examples of the racial prejudice and gender bias she has encountered throughout her life and career. Lastly, Janika educates us about microaggressions in her 60-second CPD and we discuss her love of k-pop & k-drama!
