Conducting dog health programs in Indigenous communities: a veterinary guide.
Nightcliff, NT: AMRRIC

This manual contains practical information on establishing culturally appropriate and sustainable dog programs in Indigenous communities. It is intended for veterinarians, environmental health workers, local government and organisations and individuals interested in the health and wellbeing of animals, their owners and their communities.

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.

The manual is web-based and free to AMRRIC (Animal Management in Rurual and Remote Communities) members until June 08. AMMRIC is seeking funds to provide a print version; please contact AMMRIC if you are able to assist.
