Veterinary Activities Including Veterinary Research


June 2019 statistics indicate there are 6,808 veterinary and para-veterinary practitioners registered in South Africa, 17% more than there were in 2016. Tough economic conditions are expected to affect growth in the pet care industry. Some of the priorities for the sector include providing veterinary services to small farmers in rural areas, developing a national programme to prevent and control diseases, improving South Africa’s status as a leading country in veterinary research and diagnostics and improving accessibility, availability and affordability of veterinary services.


Research and Innovation


Research institutions conduct research in animal sciences, crop sciences, research and innovation systems and agricultural economics and capacity development. Current research includes animal genetics to determine sustainable utilisation and conservation of livestock, as well as research on crop genetic engineering for biofuel. Magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound scans and laparoscopy are now used routinely in animal healthcare, while wearables are increasingly being used to monitor animal health. Among other innovations, farmers are using mobile sensors to monitor health and increase productivity, while 3D printing is being used in areas such as prosthetics design.
