By Robert E. Roperos

BUTUAN CITY, Feb. 8 (PIA) -- The city veterinarian office here has yet to finalize schedule for animal vaccination this year in support to the program of the national government to provide health care to animals.

Because of this, Alegado said regular vaccination is conducted against hog cholera, anemia, and rabies, among others.

The official also said they are continuously impounding street dogs that may cause the public harm.

“Amo usab gipadayon ang pag impound sa mga iro nga naglatagaw sa atong mga kadalanan aron masiguro ang kaluwasan sa atong mga katawhan sa dakbayan,” Alegado said. (We also continued impounding street dogs to ensure that people here in the city will be safe).

He added most of these dogs have high risk of having rabies that is dangerous to humans.

“Kasagaran man gud ani nga mga klase nga iro taas kaayo ang risgo sa rabies nga mamahimong delikado sa mga panglawas sa katawhan,” Alegado said.(Most of these dogs have high risk of having rabies that may be dangerous to people’s health).

With these developments, Alegado said during their recent meeting, schedules for this activity are set for finalization but the official assured that the activity will start as soon as possible. (PIA-Caraga)
