Community Dog Hydrobath Program Underway!

The East Arnhem Shire Council Animal Welfare Team has started the roll out of the Community Dog Hydrobath Program with Ramingining and Gapuwiyak the first Communities to see the program in action.

Lead by the Shire's Veterinarian Dr Emma Kennedy, the program is a very positive step towards encouraging owner responsibility and promoting the human-animal bond. The hydrobath is using medicated dog shampoo to kill and prevent ticks and fleas, as well as improve skin health of our four legged friends.

The Community Dog Hydrobath Program will soon be introduced to Yirrkala, Galwin'ku, Angurugu, Milingimbi and Milyakburra.
