Dr. Florencio Adonay, provincial veterinarian, said they fed more than 400 dogs in at least two villages.
“”Most of the pets we have given palatable dog food mixed with can goods were very hungry and have lost weight,” he said.
According to him, dog feeding is part of Mayon disaster operations and will last for two weeks.
Aside from checking the welfare of pets, farm animals like the cows, carabao, and goats were also evacuated to safe places and given vitamins.
“We established pooling places for these animals to keep them from harm’s way,” he said.
He said if animals inhaled ash, the might catch pneumonia and might even die.
