How to get street dogs vaccinated

What measures should be taken for street dog vaccination?

People generally overlook the health concerns associated with street dogs’ well–being. For many, maintaining the health of street dogs is a moral responsibility that gives them an option of whether to focus on it or leave it. They must understand that when street dogs are protected against diseases such as rabies, they are also indirectly protected – a rabies-infected dog bite can bring havoc in human life. Individuals working for stray dog welfare and government animal welfare organizations must ensure that dogs are vaccinated for common diseases like parvo, distemper, and other infectious sicknesses.

Here are some tips for taking care of street/stray dog vaccination:

  1. Search for private NGOs and government animal welfare organizations. Private organizations and NGOs take charges for providing their services, so check with the government ones if you don’t want to bear the charges for getting your street dog vaccinated. Government organizations run vaccination programs throughout the year, so check in with them to see whether a program is going on for your dog to avail of the benefit. In addition to doing that, find out with dog volunteer groups about what other options are available.
  2. Check the dog’s health before you take it to the veterinarian for any vaccination. You must ensure that the dog is not suffering from any health issues that must be addressed before vaccinating it. Look for signs of discomfort that the dog may be experiencing. Some vaccinations may need a specific time gap before a particular disease is cured.
  3. To take the dog to the vaccination center, you must either do it yourself or take the services of professional dog-catching companies. If you plan to do it yourself, please understand its behavior well. If the dog is ferocious and there is a chance of getting bitten, please call the dog catcher or a professional organization to do the job. To win its confidence, you must also start giving it tastier dog food, like treats.
  4. Once your dog is vaccinated for the required vaccination, please keep a record of it for future reference. The record will help you keep track of its vaccination cycles and avoid complications if the dog goes through some other common diseases in the future.
  5. You must monitor the dog’s health after it gets vaccinated. Keep an eye on it for any signs of prolonged lethargy or abnormal behavior. Do not self-analyze the situation or start alternative medicines without consulting the veterinarian. If the dog’s health deteriorates or takes a plunge, register it with a street dog shelter after taking the veterinarian’s advice if necessary.
  6. Finally, when your dog is fit and you have performed your duty toward dogs and humanity, please suggest to other people the resources available for street dog welfare and how they can utilize them.

To conclude, we must ensure that street dogs are vaccinated for their and our safety. The healthier the dogs around us, the safer community we will have.
