Good news for breeders! This government veterinary hospital operates 24/7 and offers the best medical facilities
Just like humans, animals also need proper medical facilities and hospitals to extend their life expectancy and maintain their health, thereby increasing their productivity.
Livestock plays a vital role in the rural economy as it provides livelihoods for two-thirds of the rural population in India. It contributes 4.11% of the country’s GDP and 25.6% of the total agricultural GDP. According to the 19th Cattle Census, the Indian cattle population decreased by 3.33% and the native cattle population decreased by 8.94%.
This can be attributed to the poor health infrastructure and network of veterinary hospitals in India.
The inhabitants of Delhi and its surroundings no longer have to worry!
