The Veterinary Surgeons Board received 237 complaints about services over the past five years, York Chow Yat-ngok, the secretary for food and health, said yesterday. Dr Chow told lawmakers that the number of complaints was lower than for other medical professions because there were fewer veterinary surgeons.
