Dr. Joanna Woodnutt

Veterinarian, MRCVS

I’m an experienced vet working mainly with companion animals. Whilst I still work two days a week for a local practice, I realized that I could help more people if I wrote down some of the things I talked about in my consultations.

Veterinarian (DVM)

My name is Dr. Maureen K. Murithi. I‘m a licensed veterinarian based in Nairobi, Kenya. I also hold a masters of science degree in Epidemiology. I graduated from the University of Nairobi for my undergraduate degree and Institute of Tropical Medicine.
