Negros Occidental para-veterinarians get competency training
Some 252 para-veterinarians in Negros Occidental are now better equipped to take care of animals following a two-month competency training conducted by the Provincial Veterinary Office.
Provincial Veterinarian Renante Decena said the training helped them gain basic animal health extension services in their respective barangays.
“They were also taught on the proper handling and restraint of animals, storage and handling of vaccines, and drug administration,” Decena said.
Decena said paravets, most of whom have volunteered to help government for at least 20 years, are frontline service providers, and should learn these techniques.
Last August, the PVO initiated cross-visits among the personnel of its district field units to boost veterinary services.
