A two-month quarantine is introduced at Lev LCC due to rabies

The dog that was caught in Lviv the day before died today due to rabies. In this regard, the company has been quarantined for 60 days. Pet owners are reminded to vaccinate their pets against rabies.

According to Orest Tymchyshyn, Director of the Housing and Infrastructure Department of the Lviv City Council, on 21 February in the morning, Lev received a report of a stray dog on Gogol Street. A team was immediately dispatched to catch the animal and bring it to the company’s premises at 10:15 am.

“The dog was vaccinated and had no signs of rabies, but in the afternoon we became suspicious, and this morning it died. A laboratory examination showed that the cause of death was rabies.

Today, an emergency meeting of the city’s anti-epizootic commission was held, at which it was decided to quarantine the Lev enterprise itself, as well as to introduce a 5-kilometre quarantine zone around the place where the dog was captured, i.e. Gogol Street.

We strongly recommend that owners of dogs and cats and other pets renew or, if they have not been vaccinated, get them vaccinated against rabies. This can be done in the clinics where these animals are registered, or at the State Veterinary Clinic at 9 Promyslova Street,” said Orest Tymchyshyn.

The Halychyna District Administration together with the State Veterinary Clinic will work out additional temporary locations in the quarantine zone where residents can bring their pets for vaccination if necessary.

Additional monitoring of stray animals in the quarantine zone will also be carried out.

The laboratory centre of the State Service of Ukraine for Food Safety and Consumer Protection is identifying people who have come into contact with the infected dog. Employees of the Lev utility company who caught the dog have already been sent for vaccination.
