RE: “Veterinary hospital opens in Musanze” (The New Times, August 14).
I would like to thank Dr Otto Fischer and his partners for establishing the veterinary hospital in Musanze. I believe the hospital will do a great deal to veterinary practitioners and, most importantly, to livestock farmers there and to the rest of the country.
It’s now up to the livestock farmers to seek the hospital’s services in order to improve the health and productivity of farm animals.
Livestock farming has been slowly growing in the country; this veterinary hospital should hasten growth of animal husbandry as it will provide all necessary technical services to the common farmer.
I conclude by saying that this hospital is a very important addition to the fight against poverty and a boost to the livestock industry.
