Enclosed you can find a story of ‘Veterinary Public Health & One Health: From Theory to Practice

by Milorad Radakovic and his Guardian Angels and FVE heroes (2023), Edited by Karin de Lange.

I am happy and grateful to be alive to share this wonderful ‘One Health’ story about wonderful colleagues, friends and people.

A true One Health story of Reincarnation, so to speak. The whole experience can only be described as ‘tragicomic’ since it happened immediately after my short presentation outlining the veterinary contribution and importance of Veterinary Public Health and One Health, at the General Assembly of the Federation of Veterinarians of Europe held in Malta, in November 2022.

My Guardian Angels & FVE heroes – the veterinary colleagues who brought me back and I, based on our experiences, would like to share a few to-the-point messages.

If one of you ever face a situation to carry out CPR on people
Do have Confidence: vets know how to do this, but might need a refresher.
Do Compression: start and press hard immediately and carry on doing so.
Do Shocks: Defibrillator helps and instructs. Shocks don’t hurt.
Do keep going – It is hard work but very rewarding to be stubborn, especially if a life can be saved.

Thank you all for your inspirational well wishes during my recovery. Once again cheers with Veterinary Public Health  Association – VPHA branded whiskey, given to me in 2003, signed by many UK colleagues and friends.
This was the ‘first drop in my new life’ shared with my close family on my return to the UK on 27 December 2022.
