Keeping a pet obliges owners to comply with the requirements of veterinary legislation to the end.
In case of death of an animal, it is necessary to report to the state veterinary service. As IA MariMedia told the Republican Committee for Veterinary Medicine, this applies not only to large pets such as cows, sheep, goats, pigs, but also small ones – cats, dogs and other animals.
This rule was created to provide conditions for the non-spread of contagious animal diseases, including those common to humans and animals. Such as anthrax, brucellosis, tularemia, leptospirosis, tuberculosis, rabies.
The burial site may be torn apart by other animals or may be eroded by groundwater. Thus, infectious disease pathogens can become a source of infection for animals and other humans.
Animal carcasses should be burned in special ovens. In our republic, there are such crematoria in the Soviet regional station for the fight against animal diseases and the Volga SBZZh.
According to experts, owners of dead animals should first contact the animal disease control station at their place of residence. Veterinarians will explain the further procedure.
