MC stresses the need for Cartagena to have a municipal veterinary service

Lopez Escolar: The Official College of Veterinarians of the Region of Murcia has already ratified his discomfort with the Consistorysince such a necessary service has yet to be implemented”

MC Cartagena expresses its concern over the fact that Noelia Arroyo’s government is failing to comply with the municipal ordinance for the protection and ownership of pets.

At the Plenary Session last November we asked the local Government if they were working to sign a collaboration agreement with the Department of Health in order to coordinate actions in the areas of food safety and zoonoses.

All of this, with the aim of guaranteeing the protection of health against food risks and those derived from animal diseases transmissible to humans.

“The Official College of Veterinarians of the Region of Murcia has already ratified its discontent with the City Council of Cartagena due to the fact that this ordinance is not being complied with, since a service as necessary as that of a municipal veterinarian has yet to be implemented,” explains López Escolar.

Among other things, this veterinarian must ensure that the necessary conditions for the coexistence of certain animals with the population are met. In addition, he must perform other tasks such as ensuring that health conditions are met in municipal catering establishments, fish markets and markets.

Inaction of the local government

“The local government is not complying with the Animal Rights and Welfare Protection Act, and is still failing to provide the necessary means to guarantee food security in the municipality,” says the MC councillor.

Furthermore, we must remember that “Cartagena still does not have a pest control contract, allowing rodents, cockroaches and mosquitoes to proliferate, causing discomfort to the neighbors, and they have not begun with the actions planned to control mosquito populations,” says López Escolar.

The inaction of the Councillor for Health and Coastal Affairs, Gonzalo López Pretel (VOX), “is more than evident with the delays in fumigation and even with the pruning of palm trees in the coastal area, which is late, starting at the earliest in mid-August. These actions should have been undertaken already, since at this time of year is when we have the greatest influx of population on the coast, reflecting the lack of foresight of the local Government”, concludes the MC councillor.
