PSAU-CVM conducts veterinary mission

CVM Veterinary Mission

The PSAU-CVM officially launched its extension program for the first semester of AY 2019-2020 through a veterinary mission held on August 14, 2019 at the PSAU-CVM Teaching Clinic where dog and cat owners availed free veterinary services such as neutering, anti-rabies vaccination, deworming and vitamin administration for their pets.

Days before the event, CVM faculty and students planned the physical set-up, prepared medical supplies and equipment, grouped and designated tasks to the student clinicians, and conducted a dry run of the procedural flow to ensure the smooth and efficient transition of the different components of the activity.

The CVM was overwhelmed by the positive response of pet owners who lined up for registration as early as 7:00 in the morning of August 14. Many pet owners came all the way from neighboring municipalities and cities (Apalit, Arayat, City of San Fernando, Angeles City, Mabalacat City) and from different baranggays in Magalang. As proof of the resounding success of the event, 76 dogs and cats were neutered, 78 were given anti-rabies vaccination, and 54 were dewormed and given vitamins.

The activity was part of the CHED-DARETO funded anti-rabies project implemented in collaboration with the Angeles University Foundation, the Magalang Municipal Agriculture Office and the PSAU-CVM; it supports the pet population control provision of the Anti-rabies Act (RA 9482) through spaying and castration of dogs and cats.

PSAU-CVM conducts free neutering of pets

cvm-neutering-of-pets

The PSAU-CVM team of faculty extensionists and student clinicians have been making the rounds in different barangays in Magalang conducting free neutering (castration and spay) of pets. The CHED-DARETO funded activity commenced in November 2018 and has since covered nine out of the 27 barangays in the municipality.

Canine and feline population control is conducted alongside anti-rabies vaccination in aid of rabies elimination. For rabies vaccination to be successfully, it is recommended that as much as 70% of the canine population should be vaccinated in a given area. In order to make this achievable, pet population control is recommended.

Prior to the conduct of the activity, the PSAU-CVM coordinates with barangay officials for the schedule and venue and the dissemination of information to pet owners. The team is scheduled to visit the following barangays to conduct the said activities: San Pedro 1 (July 2), San Nicolas 1 (July 9), San Nicolas 2 (July 12), Dolores (July 12), and Navaling (July 19).
