Abstract: Due to a lack of veterinary care in remote communities, AMRRIC-facilitated dog health programs provide de-sexing, parasite control and voluntary euthanasia to help manage dog population and health status. Three Northern Territory communities with available historical data, representing varying sizes and frequency of dog health programs, were selected for independent evaluation. The effectiveness of these programs was determined by dog health indices (body condition and mange scores), and population demographics (dog numbers and percentage of dogs de-sexed). Scientifically evaluating the effectiveness of dog health programs is important to maintain the quality of these programs and to ensure future funding.
