PVO to keep Negros free from a game fowl disease
Because of the spread of several game fowl disease in the country, the Provincial Veterinary Office (PVO) of Negros Occidental boosted its regulatory services. The office installed awareness signage in Silay Airport and sea ports at Barangay Banago in Bacolod City—points of entries in the province .
Provincial Veterinarian Renante Decena said that regulatory services should be intensified in the airports and seaports. Through its Animal Health and Meat Inspection Services, PVO ensures the implementation of biosecurity measures.

Decena added that animal disease surveillance is also being conducted regularly in order to prevent outbreaks of devastating diseases.
