City Veterinary

Quality poultry and livestock bring quality livelihoods and a healthy populace, which means, good profit and productive workforce. The City Veterinary Office, headed by Dr. Ronaldo B. Abarra, and his staff, is empowered by the LGU code Sec. 489, to continually aim towards this goal. Vigilance and thoroughness are only a few of the most helpful weapons against any disease that threatens livestock and poultry. New information that will benefit the city in this regard is welcomed with an open and eager mind and is then utilized.

This diligence is extended especially to poultry and dairy products, exposed to public consumption.
