The City Veterinary Office of Puerto Princesa is intensifying its campaign against rabies considering that during this period or time of the year animals are in the breeding season and the likelihood to bite people is very high.


According to Dr. Jan Escalona of the City Veterinary Office, animals are in mating season and they usually roam to look for partners. Also during this period the children are off from school and so they are exposed to the risk of being bitten by animals with rabies.


“Marami ang asong pagala- gala ngayon. Ganun din ang mga bata na naglalaro kung saan –saan.kaya tumataas ang insidente ng animal bite ay dahil sa mga bata na mahilig maglaro kung saan-saan lalo na at bakasyon ngayon wala sila sa school kaya nangyayari ito,” Dr. Escalona said.


Escalona warned the people not to be complacent because rabies is deadly. He likewise reminded the pet owner to be responsible by having their pets injected with anti-rabies vaccine.


Recently the City Veterinary Office conduct a house-to-house vaccination of animals in Brgy. Inagawan in line with the on-going Balikatan Exercises.


“Nagbabahay-bahay tayo para mabakunahan ang mga alaga nilang hayop at upang mabawasan ang kaso ng rabies,” said City Veterinarian Dr. Indira Santiago.
