QC to open public veterinary clinic

 

The local government of Quezon City will soon open its public veterinary clinic that will offer residents affordable veterinary services for their pets.

City Ordinance 2854-2019, introduced by then councilor Anthony Peter Crisologo, was approved by former Mayor Herbert Bautista.

“Low-income pet owners of Quezon City should have access to affordable veterinary services where pets can receive veterinary consultation, treatments, vaccinations, grooming, medicines, and animal supplies,” the ordinance reads.

The City Veterinary Department will supervise the clinic.

A free anti-rabies vaccination for pets will be offered for free. Services such as spay and neuter castration, deworming, and ear clearing will also be available at affordable prices.


Through the ordinance, a Veterinary Clinic committee will also be formed to draft the Implementing Rules and Regulations for the proper enactment of the local law.

The budget to be appropriated for the veterinary clinic and the site where it will be put up will also be determined by the Veterinary Clinic committee.
