Veterinary Medicine is one of the fast
growing fields in Veterinary Science due to the emerging needs in various
dimensions for emerging and re-emerging diseases, especially those relating to production
Over the past 10-15 years the situation has
changed drastically and work of veterinarians has become widely recognized.
Although, the need for veterinarians to be more actively involved in diseases
diagnosis, treatment and prevention.
The role of Veterinary Medicine professionals
is to advise farmers and owners of livestock production systems on the most
appropriate herd health management practices according to their specific
agro-ecological contexts. This does not only include the treatment of animal
illnesses and the proper installment of preventive measures, such as
biosecurity, de-worming and vaccination, but also housing, nutrition, cleaning
and disinfection of premises and environmental sanitation. The correct
undertaking of these last practices may reduce dependency on the usage of
veterinary medications and therefore reduce input and labor costs, which in
turn positively influences farm productivity and profit margins.
Though the Veterinary Medicine is part of
curriculum of U.G., P.G. and Ph.D. and veterinarian are contributing to
advances in medicine, but this is largely on a modest scale, usually confined
to the work of individuals. During this conference every participating delegate
will be getting a platform to discuss and come out with a conclusion and
recommendations for implementation by the policy makers.
