In a proactive move to enhance public health and promote responsible pet ownership, the Health Department of the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration has announced a special initiative offering free rabies vaccines, complimentary pet microchips for dogs, and neutering services for both cats and dogs. This program is scheduled to run from January 9 to 12.
For pet owners interested in availing the free rabies vaccines, the eligibility criteria include ensuring that their cats and dogs are in good health and are at least three months old. Additionally, dogs seeking microchips should also be healthy and at least four months old. The microchips can be obtained at the Buddhist Pathumrangsri Association Foundation in Thon Buri.
This initiative aims to mitigate the risk of rabies and promote responsible pet ownership by encouraging the identification and registration of pets through microchipping. Neutering services are also being offered as part of the program, contributing to the broader efforts of population control and ensuring the well-being of both pets and the community.
Pet owners in Bangkok are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to safeguard the health of their beloved animals and contribute to the overall welfare of the city. The Health Department emphasizes the importance of responsible pet ownership as a collective effort to build a safer and healthier environment for all residents.
