Benguet vet urges pet owners to avail anti-rabies programs
by Ofelia C. Empian

Responsible pet ownership will help in curbing the spread of rabies, according to the Office of the Provincial Veterinarian, as it urges the public to avail of its anti-rabies programs.

Provincial Veterinarian Miriam Tiongan said the conduct of free anti-rabies vaccination for dogs and cats is ongoing at their office.

She said aside from the vaccination, they have scheduled various offsite stations for the conduct of free spaying and neutering of pets.

“We encourage each household to only have a manageable number of pets so that they can ensure that their pets are well taken care of. Food, shelter, health care, yearly anti-rabies shots must be provided to each dog and cat,” she said.

She said this is part of their campaign of achieving a rabies-free province.

Spaying involves the removal of the female animal’s uterus and ovaries while neutering or castration is the removal of a male animal’s testicles. This is to control the population of animals and avoid having unwanted or stray animals because of owners who could not take care of them. 

To avail of the free spaying and neutering services, pet owners must first register at Provincial Veterinarian’s Office. Tiongan said the PVO will not accommodate walk-in clients.

Schedules for the activity are: Sept. 12 in Kapangan; Sept. 19 to 20 at Benguet State University, La Trinidad; Sept. 21 at BSU through the College of Veterinary Medicine; Sept. 27 at Twin Peaks, Tuba and Sept. 28 in Poblacion, Itogon.

Tiongan said in Benguet there are no reported human deaths due to rabies this year but she still warned that the public should be concerned about their pets and avail of the anti-rabies shots provided by their office.

Dr. Imelda Ulep of the Benguet General Hospital said there were 666 bite incidents involving dogs and cats during the first semester of the year.

The anti-rabies campaign is part of the nationwide program of the Department of Health for a rabies-free nation by 2020.
