TABUK CITY, Kalinga – With the theme “Maging responsableng amo, huwag hayaang gumala ang alagang pusa’t aso”, the provincial and city veterinary offices partnered to provide a free medical mission to the congregation of the Holy Trinity Cathedral in Bulanao Centro.
Set on March 30, the Holy Trinity Cathedral requested for said services for pet owners in their congregation, as well as those in the church’s neighbourhood.
City Assistance Veterinary Officer Dr. Carmen Wanas said that considering the general community quarantine restrictions, they could only limit such activity for a group.
Wanas said the activity was designed to provide free veterinary services for dogs and cats to include anti-rabies vaccination, de-worming, vitamin administration, mange treatment and other diseases of animal, to include spay and neuter medical services to control the growing population of cats and dogs in the city.
Wanas further said her office continues its information drive and rabies control and prevention activities with hopes to free the city from rabies, having recorded only five cases in 2020, compared to the 17 canine rabies cases in 2019. By GBG
