The anti-rabies campaign of the City Veterinarian’s Office (CVO) is gaining ground as close to 2,000 clients trooped to various locations to have their pets vaccinated.

CVO personnel conducted rabies vaccinations during last month’s Rabies Awareness observance to administer anti-rabies shots on dogs and cats.

A total of 2,425 canines and 458 felines were vaccinated in March.

Tumaga District recorded the most number of clients at 1,112 and the most number of pets at 1,665 (1,418 dogs, 247 cats) vaccinated.

Ayala District received 461 clients and vaccinated 515 dogs and 136 cats.

Culianan and Manicahan Districts served 226 clients (317 pets) and 60 clients (93 pets), respectively.

Vitali and Curuan Districts as well as the Base Office administered anti-rabies vaccines to a total of 157 pets.

City Veterinarian Dr. Mario Arriola, however, reminds residents to continue being responsible pet owners to ensure the health of animals under their care as well as safeguard the community. — Claudine Uniana
