The CCB Community Outreach department held a veterinary care initiative for dogs in Grootlagte village near Ghanzi. This was done in collaboration with the Maun Animal Welfare Service (MAWS) who travelled down to Ghanzi for the clinics. . The activity aimed to strengthen and promote the use of dogs as livestock guarding animals. The health of a dog determines their performance so proper care, feeding and overall well being of working dogs is essential. 41 dogs were treated and sterilised over the 3 day visit. Many thanks to MAWS and the Grootlagte community for their participation in promoting the use of this effective technique.
