Veterinary Diagnostic Microbiology Procedures
Effective veterinary services consist of four fundamental components, namely human and material resources; technical authority and capability; integration with concerned parties; and the ability to access available markets. Nonetheless, the national livestock resource has been curtailed by poor veterinary infrastructure, high prevalence of animal diseases and poor investments in veterinary professionals. The situations have been worsened especially by the fiscal challenges which have been successively limiting the effective provision of the veterinary services. Beside the poor investments in the veterinary professional lack of motivation, updated training and laboratory procedures have been observed. Veterinary diagnostic microbiology helps laboratory technologists and veterinarians to understand the way to collect, package, transport, submit and process the microbiological samples of different origin to diagnose and identify the etiological agent causing the disease and give solutions for the cases identified.
