Pets in Abra get anti–rabies shots
by Maritess B. Beñas / PIA

BANGUED, Abra – The Office of the Provincial Veterinarian (Opvet) in Abra headed by Dr. Ruston P. Valera is taking the adage, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” to heart to prevent casualties caused by rabies.

As early as February, Opvet personnel have been going around the different municipalities of the province to conduct mass vaccination of dogs and other pets that are rabies-carriers.

In the past years, the capital town had rabies cases with two reported deaths, which is what the Opvet  wants to avoid, hence the conduct of anti-rabies mass vaccination.

Aside from the mass vaccination, the Opvet is also conducting information education campaign, particularly on the provisions of Republic Act 9482 or the Anti-Rabies Act of 2007.

Opvet also reminds the public, particularly dog owners, to register their pets and have them vaccinated as mandated by Ordinance 1, s. 2001. Dog owners who fail or refuse to register their dogs will be fined P500 while those with stray dogs will be fined P1,000.

Moreover, dog owners who do not or refuse to have their dogs vaccinated will likewise be fined. Violators shall payP2,000 for the first offense; second offense, P2,500, and for the third offense, P2,500 and imprisonment of six  months.

Rabies is a human infection that occurs after a bite or scratch by an infected animal. It can be transmitted when saliva comes into direct contact with a victim’s fresh skin lesions.
