Disease Investigation Section- Pune


Animal health is the backbone of livestock industry. Any disease outbreak leads to huge economic losses through mortality and loss of productivity. In fact the National Commission on Agriculture was emphatic in its observation that "Livestock development programs cannot possibly succeed unless and until well-organized animal health service is built up and protection of livestock against diseases and pests, particularly against the deadly infectious one’s is assured".
