From our friend, Dr. Waseem Shaukat, in Lahore.
Free De-worming Camp at Engro Dairy Hub Kassowal
Under the auspices of Vets Care Organization Pakistan, Vets Care Club of the University of Veterinary & Animal Sciences, Lahore (VCC) in collaboration with the Tetra Pak, DeLaval & Engro Foods organized a Free De-worming and Treatment Camp in Dairy Hub Kassowal (District Sahiwal) on Sunday 14th of March 2010. About 78 volunteer veterinary doctors and veterinary students participated in the camp.
The volunteers were divided into six teams and moved to 6 different villages. It is worth mentioning that parasites are a major problem in Pakistan, making the animals uncomfortable, causing stress to them and making them prone to various diseases. Therefore, all animals were de-wormed and provided with the necessary medicines. According to official records, 1152 animals were de- wormed free of charge.
Thanks are extended to all companies who provided medicines and to the University of Veterinary & Animal Sciences, Lahore, for providing transport. We are grateful to all volunteer participants and to our respected advisors and teachers for supervising the camp.
Vets Care Organization Pakistan commits to continuing our efforts to make Pakistan a friendly and cruelty-free environment for animals, in which humans respect all earthlings.
