Dog Bites feature in the Public Health impacts of keeping dogs.

Ray Butcher organised a day’s seminar during the recent 2009 WSAVA Congress in Sao Paulo, Brazil The theme was considerations related to dog population control, especially where these impact on human public health. This was in tune with the “one medicine” philosophy in which it is thought impossible to consider animal health and human health in isolation. 

The subjects discussed included current thinking about humane methods dog population management. Zoonotic diseases that were of special relevance to South America included rabies and leishmaniasis. Tiny De Keuster gave a presentation of dog bites.
