Veterinarsko higienska služba

Veterinary Hygiene Service

The Veterinary Hygiene Service removes dead animals, takes them to the cadaver collection point, and arranges for their harmless destruction.

This service is extremely important in terms of preventing the spread of disease to both animals and humans, as it removes the source of potential contamination. It is also important from the point of view of environmental protection, since removing dead animals helps eliminate water, soil and feed contamination.
