Koronadal City, South Cotabato- To strengthen the campaign against rabies in the province, the Provincial Veterinary Office (PVet) has recorded more than 31,000 head of dogs and cats already vaccinated

According to PVet officer Dra. Flora D. Bigot, DVM, the office of the Municipal/City agriculture and the Barangay Animal Health Workers are working together in the implementation of this program.

“Patuloy po kaming nagbabahay-bahay sa pagbabakuna ng mga  aso at pusa, katuwang naming ang Municipal at City Agriculture Office at Barangay Animal Health Workers.” Pvet Dra. Bigot said during the conduct of Monday convocation ceremony.

Pvet reiterated that due to high numbers of rabies cases in the province, there should be a massive vaccination program but for some municipalities it was not easy to penetrate due to some covid related restrictions.

“Nakapagbakuna napo tayo ng 31,000 ng mga aso at pusa. Subalit, may mga kaso na po tayo na nagpositibo sa laboratoryo ng rabies, sa kadahilanan ang ibang munisipyo ay hindi po napapasok ang ilang barangay dahil sa restriction ng covid.” She added.

They assured that minimum health protocols were strictly followed in the conduct of this activity.
