Description

This manual contains practical information on establishing culturally appropriate and sustainable dog programs in Indigenous communities.

It is intended for use by veterinarians, environmental health workers, local government and organisations and individuals interested in the health and wellbeing of animals, their owners and their communities.

Topics covered include:

This is the only such guide currently available. The manual has been written by Dr Samantha Phelan, a Northern Territory-based veterinarian with significant field experience in remote Indigenous communities.

Please note that, although originally intended to cover all of northern Australia, the manual is largely centered on the history, legislation and veterinary work being conducted in the Northern Territory, with some reference to Queensland and Western Australia.
