BHUBANESWAR: A two-week programme to impart key skills to veterinary doctors on sterilisation of dogs and rabies control is being held on the Veterinary College campus of Odisha University of Agriculture Technology (OUAT) here.

The initiative is being supported with a state-of-the-art and customised mobile veterinary hospital vehicle which is fully equipped to run training programmes and outreach surgical campaigns at any location of India.

As many as 40 dogs have been sterilised in the first five days of the programme, said sources.

The endeavour is being sponsored by UK Dogs Trust under its Mission Rabies programme and organised in collaboration with People for Animals (PFA) and OUAT.

Speaking about the initiative, International Director of Mission Rabies Dr Kate Shervell said local vets can form the frontline in working towards controlling stray dog population and making canine rabies vaccination programmes more successful.

The project involves GPS mapping of every dog vaccinated and sterilised using smartphone technology to monitor and scientifically evaluate the programme.
