Presentation of "Flying Brigade"
Part of the "Robins" project for control
on the normal recovery of the castrated dogs
In connection with the frequently discussed problem about the danger of the spread of dog tapeworm and other intestine parasites carried by stray dogs we bring your attention measures which the non-governmental organizations are taking. The stray dogs, which are castrated and put back on the streets, are regularly cleaned of parasites and receive a vaccine against rabies.
In order to exercise control over these activities we organize "flying brigades" consisting of volunteers from the organizations. The people, who locally take care that the castrated dogs get enough water and food, keep their passports with which the animals are assigned after the castration. On a holiday in order to get the maximal support from the local people the "flying brigades team" visits a neighborhood of the capital and:
- The coordinator of the non-governmental organization in the neighborhood in advance sets the schedule of the times and places in which the citizens have the duty to bring the dogs for an examination by the "flying brigade".
- The veterinary doctor who is necessarily part of the team performs a detailed examination of the animals.
- Parasites are removed from the dogs including internal parasites, which eliminates the danger of the spread of internal parasites including tapeworm.
- The dogs, which are vaccinated, receive a rabies vaccine.
- If it is necessary external parasites are removed.
- With signature and stamp the doctor notes the medical manipulations in the veterinary-medical passports of the dogs.
- People assisting the non-governmental organizations enter the new data into the "Robins" documentation-registrations, which include information for the health of the dogs and coordinates of the people who take care of them.
- During the time being of the "flying brigades" people can receive free consultation about the care, which a dog needs to be in a good health.
Removal of parasites is done every two months depending on the used medicines. The vaccine against rabies needs to be done every year. More and more citizens want to receive a multi-aimed vaccine. This way they protect them from the infectious canine diseases.
The main goal of the "Robins" project is to maintain the health status of the castrated dogs, which does not pose a treat to human health.
The realization and implementation of "Robins" is done with the support of similar environmental organization under the slogan "Care for the people through protection of the animals".
