Rescue and Treatment

ABOUT

Rescue and Treatment

Our Rescue and Treatment Program helps dogs who have been injured or are sick.  Community members often notify us of the illness or injury, and a vet and an animal care officer provide emergency care to the dogs on the scene.  If we can treat the animal at where they are located, then we do.  Otherwise, our facility has 32 kennels that are used for rescue and treatment. Every dog that comes through our facility gets vaccinated against rabies and is spayed or neutered and dewormed. 

Since 2004 we have aided over 2,000 animals.

Traffic Accident

Road accidents are becoming more common by the day, resulting in fractures, injuries, and even death in animals.

Disease Treatment

We provide treatment to various diseases that are infected on animals.

Injury

Animal Abuse, Cruelty, Accidents, Fights, and other incidents cause injuries to dogs and cats. We provide treatment as well as assistance in the fight against cruelty.

TVT

TVTs (transmissible venereal tumors) are tumors that develop from the uncontrolled growth of histiocytes. Histocytes are immune system cells that can be found in several parts of the body, including the skin. Skin histiocytes give rise to TVTs. The only animal origination that treats TVT in Nepal is the KAT Centre Nepal. As, we are the only animal welfare organization that provides TVT treatment, we face a significant task in working on it, as one dog’s recovery can take anywhere from 1.5 to 2 months. To prevent TVT from spreading the dogs must be neutered and spayed.

Mange

Mange is a skin infection that affects animals and is caused by mite infestations. It causes irritation, itching, skin thickening, and hair loss. Varieties of the mite Sarcoptes scabiei, which also causes human scabies, cause the most severe form of mange. All domestic animals are known to have mange, while many varieties of mange mites infest only one species. They are passed from animal to animal through direct contact and through objects that have encounter infected animals. Mange can be treated in most cases. If possible, medicine is administered on the street with the support of the community. Serious cases are treated at the center where we care for the dog during treatment, which last approximate 2 months.
