However, to date, veterinary workers do not have the opportunity to celebrate their professional holiday and thus to feel ownership of a single branch of the professional community, due to the lack of such a holiday, "- was noted in the explanatory memorandum of the Ministry of Agriculture.

Approval of the holiday will be a stimulus and evidence of recognition of the strategic importance of veterinary medicine in the economy of the country", - stressed in the department.
