BPT’s mobile veterinary clinic is of particular interest to veterinary students who have ample opportunity to practice
their skills under the guidance of a qualified veterinarian; especially due to the large scale of the project. It is a
hands-on experience and each student can learn and experience as much as he/she wants to. In this way knowledge
and skills will be shared and multiplied so that animal welfare can be improved throughout Sri Lanka and abroad.

DOG CATCHING AND HANDLING
Most of the roaming dogs are friendly, but often do not like to be touched as there is no interaction with people other
than feeding. Therefore hand catching is not always successful and we have to catch them using special nets. This is
considered one of the most humane of the currently accepted methods of catching dogs.
