Rapid vaccination taking place in Buriram after province declared rabies outbreak area

Livestock Department officials in Buriram are rapidly vaccinating dogs and cats in areas deemed at risk of rabies, after the entire province was declared an outbreak area for the disease last week.

The local Livestock Department office is deploying vaccination teams in collaboration with local administrative organizations, in order to curb the spread of rabies.

In Ban Phae sub-district of Khu Mueang district, officials indicated monitoring against the disease was needed as there were some 4,000 dogs and cats in the locale – many of them strays.

In addition to the vaccination service, Livestock Department officials were also providing sterilization service for dogs and cats. Emphasis was being placed on strays, in an attempt to curb the number of stray animals.

Thapanaphong Monthathip, the chief Livestock Department official for Khu Mueang district, said his personnel were experiencing a shortage of budget for procuring vaccines. He urged the local administrative organizations, municipalities and businesses to help procure the required rabies shots for dogs and cats.
