Kathmandu, January, 2016– With a kind support from Mayhew International, our new isolation unit is finally complete. For a treatment center like ours who rescues and treats no less than 1000 dogs every year, an isolation setup was vital for the prevention of illness in animals.
Our isolation ward consists of 10 kennels which have a separate room for mange, cancer dogs and dogs with other communicable diseases. The kennels are built in such a way that they are easy to clean and disinfect. Special ventilation system has been applied in order to help control spreading of diseases. The care takers and shelter workers are provided with gloves and boots which they can use while cleaning the area. Furthermore, the area will be disinfected on a regular basis to help prevent potentially infectious diseases. More
