The Department of Zoology In collaboration with Dept. of Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Services, Govt. of Goa organized a ‘Free Pet Health Care camp and Veterinary Clinic’ in the college campus on 27th September 2014 as a part of their Institutional Community Outreach Programme during the Golden Jubilee year. The villagers were informed of this facility through the Parish portals. In all, 15 canids, belonging to 5 breeds were examined for general health and specific clinical presentations. A few feral dogs from the campus were also brought to the campsite for examination and treatment. Also, 11 animals received Anti-Rabies vaccine free of cost. The experimental rats from the Zoology Laboratory were also examined. During this programme, the in-charge Officer of the Vasco Veterinary Hospital, Atanasia Fernandes, spoke on ‘Tips for Pet Care and common ailments of pets’. This was followed with an interactive session where the pet-owners sought advice on a range of issues concerning their pet’s health.
