VETERINARY services in the Western Division have been boosted by the establishment of a new animal welfare facility in Nadi.

The new clinic was partly funded by the Fiji National University because it is used by its veterinary students.

At a recent workshop on integrated one health concept for animals, human health and ecosystem in the Pacific, chief guest and career veterinarian Dr Robin Yarrow said the establishment of the facility would open up doors for the university.

"The recent establishment of a new and part externally-funded animal welfare facility in Nadi is encouraging and provides opportunities for partnerships as well as for service by volunteers, both by citizens as well as by overseas-based individuals possessing relevant skills," he said.

The workshop was organised by FNU in partnership with the Veterinary Department of Charles Sturt University (CSU), Australia.
