Anti-rabies Campaign Ready For Phuket | The Thaiger

PHUKET TOWN: As part of Thailand’s annual drive to eliminate rabies, the Phuket Provincial Livestock Office is offering free vaccinations for the island’s dogs. Announcing details of this year’s campaign, the Chief of the Office, Niphat Roungruang, said he expects to vaccinate about 8,500 of Phuket’s estimated 11,000 dogs by the end of this month. Dog owners may also ask the Office’s three veterinarians to give their pets a check-up, and even to sterilize them, all at no cost. The drive will be run like a road show, moving from one part of the island to the next. The service will be available from 9 am to 3 pm, but Niphat advised owners to come in the morning — if business in the afternoon seems slow, the three vets will pack up early and move on to their next venue. The service will be available as follows: March 7, opening ceremony and vaccinations for Tambon Vichit (at Tambon Vichit Administration Offices) March 8, Phuket Town (Wat Kajornrungsun) March 9, Phuket Town (Wat Sansuk) March 10, Phuket Town (Sapan Hin Area) March 11, Rasada (Tambon Rasada Administration Offices) March 12, Rasada (Wat Kaosireh) March 15, Ko Kaew (Sapam Chinese Temple) March 16, Chalong (Moo 2 Sala) March 17, Karon (Wat Suwankirikate) March 18, Karon (Karon Council Offices) March 19, Rawai (Wat Sawangarom) March 22, Patong (Wat Suwankiriwong) March 23, Kathu (Wat Kathu) March 24, Cherngtalay (Wat Cherngtalay) March 25, Maikao (Wat Tahchartchai) March 26, Maikao (Moo 4 Sala) March 29, Saku (Wat Naiyang) March 30, Pakrok (Wat Pakrok) March 31, Srisoonthorn (Wat Manik).

An Indian tourist has been rescued from drowning after getting into difficulty while swimming at Patong beach yesterday.

Patong Surf Life Saving report that around 1.30pm at Patong Beach an Indian tourist was spotted in the water, choking and fighting to stay afloat.

Lifeguards dived in and brought him back to the beach. He was not breathing and his heart has stopped beating by the time they got him back to shore. Lifeguards urgently applied CPR.

Mr Jhamnani’s heart started to beat again and he became conscious. He was taken to Vachira Phuket Hospital where he is now recovering.

Well done to the team at Patong Surf Lifesaving. I think you can expect a visit from a grateful Indian tourist in a few days.
