April 30 is known throughout the world as the vet daya date that particularly in Colombia is commemorated in the month of May, to remember the start of activities of the Official Veterinary Schoolwhich took place on the 10th of 1921.
Precisely, within the framework of the celebration of this international date, experts expose the challenges of their profession in the face of the new regulations related to pet ownership, among other activities.
Veterinary medicine is becoming more important every day. The truth is that since the origin of this science in ancient Mesopotamia, this work does not receive the proper connotation, since they address an issue of social responsibility closely related to human welfare; However, this perception is changing thanks to the fact that every day there are more pets in the homes of Colombians.
This perception is supported by some professionals at the local level, such as the veterinarian of the Barranquilla Zoo Henrique Guimaraes Riva, and at a national level by the veterinarian belonging to the BIOS Group, Ricardo Loaiza.
