Bam works hands in hand with all stake holders in the field of veterinary to ensure the gaps that exist in the services delivery are filled.

Back ground information:
Uganda has only 1 public veterinary faculty in Kampala. Only about 35 % of the postgraduates vets are working as a veterinarian after finishing their studies. About 5 public colleges with main focus on paravet education exist in the country. Altogether about 190 Veterinarians are working for Government.

Vets employed by the government have the following tasks:

  • Epidemic disease control
  • Guarding animal markets.
  • Train communities on how to handle and manage the Animals (Animal Welfare)
  • Make reports to district/region on the animal health situation
  • Monitoring and evaluation
  • Act as a link between communities with Vet departments, Governments and Development partners.

Tasks of Paravets:

  • Perform minor surgical treatments
  • Diagnosis of the diseases and treatment
  • Vaccination of different livestock diseases example:

Anthrax, Black-quarter
Foot-and- mouth disease,
Lumpy skin disease and Rabies.

  • Offering advisory services i.e consultation of farmers and advise them about importance of good animals husbandry
  • Perform postmortem.

Give appropriate advice to clients on animal health and management aspects;

  • Carry out prophylactic measures against various livestock diseases;
  • Carry out artificial insemination(cattle);
  • Hoof trimming and dehorning
  • Collection of sample (blood sample, feacal sample, urine sample and milk sample) for diagnosis of different diseases.
  • Reporting all practices /activities to the district veterinary officer)

Because of the low density of vets and the above described, main tasks of government vets, animal keepers in the rural communities do not have access to veterinary care by veterinarians, often paravets taking over all the tasks

Rabies is a fatal disease and a terrible way to die by the virus that causes it! The disease infects both humans and animals but mostly through bites which is common in dogs. The disease is almost always fatal if no immediate immunization and or treatment is given to the victim. Approximately 33,000 people die annually from rabies in Uganda mostly transmitted through dog bites.

People are afraid of the infection here. Even innocent dogs and cats are short, beaten or poisoned because they are suspected. But this approach brings no solution. The most effective way is through education Vaccination of dogs, castration or sterilization, thus the number of stray animals is not increased any further.

We have vaccinated during the past years in over 50 villages and towns more than 72,00 dogs. It can be seen now that the number of dog bite reports is gradually decreasing since we stepped in, and that most dogs in these sub counties pose no risk to the population as it was the case before. The work is tedious, but shows great effect: the number of rabies transmission is steadily decreasing. 

It requires at least two passes on vaccinations, so that we can ensure that the rabies no longer breaks out easily. Our team is available around the clock to vaccinate these animals Please donate to BAC to be able to carry out our activities.

Developmental Growth Disorders in Puppies

Proper nutrition is the best opportunity to keep your puppy healthy throughout her life. If you start her with good nutrition and give her adequate veterinary care from the beginning, her chances of developing a growth disorder are greatly reduced.

We were called in to save the life of this dog which was discovered to have been poisoned with food . Such are some of the several cases we receive at our clinic.

Serious Illness, Accidents and Surgery in Dogs

Imagine being hurt or injured and not able to ask for what you need to feel better. That is exactly what your dog feels during a serious illness, or after an accident or surgery

Cancer in Dogs

In many ways, your dog is a lot like you. You both need the basics of proper nutrition and exercise to stay active and healthy. The bad news: Dogs can develop cancer, just like humans. The good news: Dogs have cancer treatments, just like humans.

The neutering of dogs and cats in our opinion is very important and urgent, and we have tried to put much emphasis on it ~ (see our page on FB ~Bam Animal Clinicss)because it is in this way that it is possible to prevent that every year, countless dogs and cats-children are left without homes and food.

So we dedicate this project the most attention, because no effect is more lasting than the prevention of new life, but which then ends up back in poverty. Not that we are against life, no, but we want and need to try to prevent that in a world where the animals will be disposed of as trash, dogs and cats multiply unhindered.

We want as much as possible, to prevent the emergences and even more animal suffering. We strive to help those who are indeed ready for neutering their animals, but lack the money for implementation. This process may be somewhat expensive, but we would need to ensure transparency.  We want to give control to create trust. Please support our Neutering project.Thank you
