ComVal conducts free vaccination for dogs

by Grace Almedilla

Compostela Valley Province (25 March) -- In celebrating the Rabies Awareness Month this March, and in support to the national goal to be a Rabies-Free Philippines in 2020, the provincial government through its Provincial Agriculturist's Office-Veterinary Services Division conducts Information Education Campaign and Massive Rabies Vaccination of Dogs in different municipalities.

The province's Veterinarian Dr. Benjamin Reyno shared that part of the advocacy is their conduct of Orientation on Anti-Rabies Act of 2007, presentation of update on Canine and Human Rabies Case in Region XI, and the Registration and Free Rabies Vaccination of Dogs. The first 3 municipalities scheduled were Maco (March 11), Montevista (March 18), and Laak (March 30).

Those having dogs are encouraged to be responsible enough to join the government's effort on dog vaccination. Rabies is very dangerous. It can be acquired through a dog's bite or if its mouth's spew (saliva) goes into a person's wound or abrasion.

It is required that a 3- month old puppy shall undergo the vaccination and every year thereafter. Dog owners are also reminded to take care of their pets through regular bathing, feeding clean food and water, and providing a well maintained dog shelter. (PIA) [top]
