Publisher: Georgetown (Guyana): 1987Description: p. 1-4.ISSN: 0253-4746.Summary: The livestock sector is being given some semblance of priority. There are no large-scale organised livestock farms at the present time and attention is being given to this. The Island continues to enjoy freedom from the major exotic diseases excepting rabies which is responsible for severe economic losses in the livestock industry. The anti-rabies immunisation campaign continues. The mongoose population continues on the increase despite the on-going entrapment programme. Epidemiological surveillance is of major concern. Grenada is still without quarantine facilities. The entry of suspected commercial quantities of disease-infested meat posed a problem. The opening of the new Airport has served to improve surveillance efforts. Attempts are being made to bring the meat inspection services under the umbrella of the Veterinary Services. At present, the Veterinary Services comprise a one-man unit but plans are ahead to improve this undesirable situationSubject(s): SERVICIOS VETERINARIOS | SALUD ANIMAL | ENFERMEDADES DE LOS ANIMALES | DIAGNOSTICO | CAPACITACION | PRODUCCION ANIMAL | RABIA BOVINA | CUARENTENA | INSPECCION DE LA CARNE | GRANADA
