The veterinarian’s role is to protect the community and promote public health. The veterinarian is responsible for the health of both humans and animals altogether. He/she is also responsible for supervising animal products and their safety, including the production of safe food, which shall be free of pathogens and residuals of medicines and antibiotics. Therefore, the community health depends on the qualified veterinary cadre.
The Department seeks to qualify veterinarians who meet the needs and requirements of society and contribute effectively to the development of livestock of all kinds (domestic animals and fisheries), and to the preservation of the environment and public health.
