The Negros Occidental Provincial Veterinary Office earned P10,934,062.06 in 2018, or an increase of 6.7 percent compared to 2017, from veterinary and laboratory fees, and farm income, records showed yesterday.
The PVO earned close to P11 million, which is P732,329.86 higher than the P10,201,732.20 revenue in 2017.
The regulatory services involving veterinary health certificate issuance, livestock and game fowl registration, and traders licenses recorded the highest revenue at P7,185,556.81.
Farm income and products yielded P3,475,821.25, laboratory services at P222,424, and dairy training fees at P50,060, the records showed.
Provincial Veterinarian, Dr. Renante Decena, said yesterday the increase in collection was due to the effective implementation of Provincial Tax Ordinance 2017-001, series of 2017.
The conduct of information dissemination and delivery of technical services in commercial farms and backyard game fowl farm owners registering their businesses were also big contributors to the increase of PVO revenues, he added.
Decena also said the increase in income showed that the veterinary and regulatory services of the office had distinctly instilled in the clients the value of availing of the products and services of PVO.
This year, PVO targets to further increase its collection by improving its products and services, and offer more services that cater to the needs of the public, he also said.*
