YS Jagan flags off AP govts phase 2 veterinary ambulances

TADEPALLI: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy flagged off an additional 165 veterinary ambulance units on Wednesday, kicking off phase 2 of the initiative. The government would invest Rs. 240.69 crore to provide quality medical services with a total of 340 veterinary ambulances.

The Veterinary vans include a Veterinary Doctor, a certified Veterinary Assistant, and a Driver-cum-Attender. The van also has a mini laboratory with a microscope to perform 20 different sorts of manure testing and 15 different types of blood tests, as well as all types of vaccines and medicines, and a hydraulic facility to load cattle into the vehicle.

Veterinary Ambulances are meant to perform small procedures on cattle animals, sheep, goats, and pets in addition to core medical care. The vans also include an in-house facility for loading the animal into the ambulance so that operation can be performed with a hydraulic lift. In an emergency, the animal can be transported to the nearest veterinary area hospital / veterinary polyclinic for better care. Following treatment, the animal would be returned to the livestock farmer's home free of cost.

The YS Jagan govt has taken the initiative to develop exclusive veterinary ambulances equipped with miniature laboratories for animals, emphasising the necessity to provide rapid health care facilities to animals throughout the state.

YS Jagan unveiled 175 ambulances as part of the first batch of 'Dr. YSR Sanchara Pasu Aarogya Seva' (Veterinary Ambulances) with cutting-edge technology in May 2021. Every Assembly constituency received at least two veterinary ambulances from the government. During phase one, government-run veterinary services serviced 1,26,559 livestock herders, saving the lives of 1,81,791 cattle.

In addition to providing ambulance services, the government intends to build infrastructure facilities for district veterinary hospitals as well as two superspecialty hospitals in Vijayawada and Pulivendula.
