Dogs' sense of smell is by far superior to that of humans.

The sense of smell captures a dog's world down to the tiniest detail, whether it is food, "scent messages" from fellow dogs, or human emotions.

Africa Day is to commemorate the founding of the Organization of African Unity (OAU) in 1963. This alliance was followed in 2002 by the African Union (AU), which has 55 member states today.

Controls are essential to ensure safe food. | © Veterinarians without Borders

In Austria, the quality standards for food are very high. Inspections along the whole supply chain are required by law. In developing countries, such as in Africa, controls are often inadequate, public awareness is low and the need for information is high.
