Pink dogs!

By now, we are all used to seeing pink-coloured dogs roaming the streets of Dhaka. The Centre for Disease Control and the Directorate General for Health Services have launched a nationwide mass dog vaccination campaign all over Dhaka and both North and South was brought under this initiative. According to the vaccination protocol, dogs should be vaccinated at least three years in a row to secure lifelong immunity. These dogs will be re-vaccinated under CDC’s programme (second year of vaccination), which will only boost their immunity. They were highlighted with pink food colour, which is not harmful, to make sure that the same dog is not vaccinated twice. It’s always good to see Bangladesh taking initiatives that we see in developed countries. People are becoming more compassionate towards animals and that’s a good thing!
