Abstract:

In my Scientific Student Work I checked the possibility to establish an emergency veterinary mobile service in our country. For my survey foreign well functioning, similar organisations have served the basis and examples. A great example for reaching huge territory is the well organized group the Ôsterreichische Tierrettung as well as giving internship, whereas Tiernotarzt Wien presents itself as a profitable emergency veterinary service model answering the question of transportation and medical attendance at night. For these organisations already realized in Austria distinctive sound and light signalling devices were permitted to use is on call in Hungary. The response received from BRFK (Head Department of Police in Budapest) was potentially accepting by writing a proposal to amend to the regulation at ORFK ( National Police Headquarters). If successful, there is no obstacle to using distinctive signals for veterinarians having driving licence. To find out the technical opinion in Hungary I have interwied veterinary professionals with few years experience in such a mobile and hospital emergency services. Difficulties were pointed out as labour costs concluded that it could mainly operate as supplementing a hospital service performance in a private hospital fulfilling as well medical attendance at night.

As for the issue, if there is a need for establishing such a service in Hungary I have conducted a survey: questionnaires were sent out. The veterinarians practising in Budapest and surroundings feel in highest ratio (78%) that there is a need for such a service in our country. Asking the animal keepers showed up that this is an important and unsolved problem in Hungary. More than 30% of the owners could not get attendance for their pets if there is a need for a service on a short notice and / or out of consultating hours though 92,5% of them already had acute medical problem or accident urging emergency veterinary care.

Our study indicates that there is a need for emergency mobile service with veterinary attendance in Hungary mainly because of difficult transportation as complaining animal owners, and a general lack of night duty but the requirements to establish one are deficient in our country.

This topic can be fully analized by our results producing sufficient information in number and quality further on retrieving data for establishing this project (for example detailed regional demand, economic and business plan).
