Veterinary stamp issue by Portugal

The Portuguese Post has released a set of stamps to mark the World Veterinary Year 2011.

The year 2011 has been named the World Veterinary Year in recognition of the 250th anniversary of the foundation of the world's first veterinary school in Lyon, France, in 1761, shortly followed by the Alfort veterinary school, near Paris, in 1764, both of them at the initiative of French veterinarian Claude Bourgelat.
