Around 40 to 50 cases are recorded at different dispensaries and general hospitals of the city on an average.
As per the data available with the dispensaries, nearly 3,000 victims of dog bite have been treated since January.
The civic body hired an agency for sterilisation of dogs in October last year but despite this the number of stray dogs has not reduced.
Medical Officer Dr Amrtipal Singh said while the number of dog bite cases in the city had not increased much, the city’s dispensaries are also treating victims of dog bites from nearby areas of Punjab and Haryana, which increased the figures.
Mayor Rajesh Kalia said the Municipal Corporation was serious regarding the problem and steps had been taken to control the stray dog menace in the city.
