THE Iloilo City Council approved on October 1 the supplemental budget, which included a P1-million fund for rabies vaccines for pets.
The vaccines are good for 13,070 dogs and cats for this year.
The Office of City Veterinarian (OCV) encouraged residents to be responsible pet owners by availing of pets' rabies vaccination.
They already vaccinated 700 dogs and cats from July to September.
OCV is now in the process of purchasing more than 1,000 10-dose vials of rabies vaccines to sustain the program for public health safety. (PR)
