Vet treat swine.
Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
can a animal doctor also cure the swine along with other animal? please answer in the light of quran and the hadith?

Vet treat swine
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
As impure and unclean as the swine may, or as unlawful and ‘haraam’ be the consumption of its flesh for the believers to consume, the swine will still be considered an animal like the other animals……if it is thirsty or hungry one should try to quench its thirst or hunger; if it is hurt, injured or unwell and one is in a capacity to help it, there is absolutely no harm in doing so.
Obedience would be to absolutely abstain from deriving any benefit from the swine or its products; but there is absolutely no harm if one happens to help or cure the swine who might be in desperate need for its survival.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
