April 27 is World Veterinary Day

Hosted by the World Veterinary Association for nearly 20 years, World Veterinary Day has been an opportunity to celebrate the contributions of veterinarians to the health of animals and society.

This year's theme is the Value of Vaccination. Vaccination is an essential tool for preventive veterinary medicine, promotion of animal health and welfare, and reducing the risk of human exposure to many zoonotic pathogens.

In Jamaica we vaccinate dogs, horses, cattle, pigs, chickens, sheep, goats and donkeys for various diseases.
