SMALL RUMINANT HOSPITAL-LALMANDI

Small Ruminant Hospital, Lalmandi, established since 2013 serves as a pivotal institution with regards to lending health care to small ruminants of areas including almost whole of Kashmir division except for very far flung locations. The hospital serves a dual purpose of OPD as well as visit-on-call system of addressing of outbreaks as well, besides providing comprehensive health care facilities at Sonamarg subalpines during summer grazing of livestock. Moreover the medicines (prophylactic as well as therapeutic) are made available to general public which complements the supply from district headquarters and serves as a backup store to meet the crisis, when and if any, needless to make a mention of the fact that quality medicines and services are provided at a subsidized costs. Besides the hospital serves as an extension centre for promoting sheep and goat rearing attracting a good number of unemployed and educated youth towards the development of the sector. In last few years, the hospital has been upgraded to see through various surgical interventions that has brought a great respite to small ruminant breeders. Some surgeries like LSCS, Tube Cystotomy for Urolithiasis, Correction of hernias & fractures, Entropion & ectopion, handling of dog bite injuries etc. have become a common feature of routine hospital activities.
