DVMF Mobile Vet Clinic: Be Part of the Change, Sterilize Your Pets

The Department of Veterinary Medicine and Fisheries (DVMF), which is a part of the Cebu City Government and the Cebu City Veterinary Office, offers low-cost spay/neuter surgeries for cats and dogs exclusively for the Cebu City. Last September 2020, the dream of having a mobile vet clinic finally came true according to Dr. Alice Utlang and Dr. Jessica Maribojoc (Doc Jess). Through DVMF mobile vet clinic, DVMF can expedite the goal of reducing the number of dogs and cats entering the Cebu City pound, and most especially, contributing to the overall health and welfare of the community animals lacking access to vet care.

**The DVMF is committed to prioritizing the health and safety of the whole community including the animals and staff. As a result of the ongoing Covid-19 crisis, you must sign up prior to arriving to the mobile clinic to avail of the low-cost spay/neuter and vaccination services because only a limited number of dogs and cats can be served.**

DVMF Mobile Vet Clinic went to Brgy. Mabolo!

DVMF of Cebu City by far is one of the best in the country when it comes to animal service. Their response to providing a long-term solution to the problem of overpopulation of stray cats and dogs in the city has been very aggressive. So, when Sveta of SvetRescue informed me about the mobile vet clinic coming to our barangay, we immediately grab the chance. Although all of my cats have been spayed/neutered already, it was a chance for our friend, Carlito, who is helping us in fostering rescued animals, to spay his pets.

The schedules of their upcoming visits to the different barangays are usually posted in their Facebook page. So, if you want to spay/neuter or vaccinate your pet, and avail their service right on your barangay, then make sure you follow their page and be informed!

Carlito had his dog spayed at DVMF Mobile Vet Clinic!

The DVMF mobile vet clinic was stationed right beside the barangay hall and just a walking distance from Carlito’s house. So, we accompanied him to have his dog spayed at the clinic.

Here’s the catch. I never thought of this until Sveta introduced the idea.

As I see it, it gives ordinary people without any connections to animal welfare groups “power” to do the right thing and be part of
“making the change” 🐾

If you think about it, Carlito here only brought one dog to the clinic. Every time a dog is spayed, the list of unsterilized dogs in the city grows shorter by one. That’s one thing less “we” all have to think about. What does this mean? Just imagine how many “Carlito’s” are coming together to share the common goal. So, never really doubt the actions of a small group of people who just want to create a “change” for the voiceless animals, because the ripple effect – when it happens, is really powerful!

Carlito is an ordinary human, is he not? Carrying a pet on his arms is not the most glamorous way to change the world, is it? So, if you’re just an ordinary person like Carlito, the best way to change the world is to join events like this which is working to create the kind of world that we would like to see for the voiceless animals. And we are very much grateful to DVMF for enabling ordinary people like us to be a part of the change.

Salute what He doing. Helping the street dogs with his money and has own clinic, well this is really good gratitude. Helping an animal in need is one of the most fulfilling and selfless things you can do.

This is a great idea in your area– it’s so important. But I like the mobile aspect so much. We need to do more of that here in the US. We could care for more pets!

What a great program! Spaying and neutering are so essential to prevent unwanted litters that can become stray animals. So glad that this program is mobile and affordable!

This is such a great and important service. Thank you for giving a voice to the animals. And I love the vehicle!

My dogs are both neutered. It’s great that a mobile service like this exists- makes it convenient to get these important things taken care of for our pets.
