Training Local Veterinarians & Providing Veterinary Services in Paraguay

World Vets recently had a veterinary team in the landlocked South American country of Paraguay. One of the objectives of their visit was to provide free instruction for local veterinarians in performing spay/neuter surgeries. Another aim was to provide a high volume sterilization and animal health clinic for the poor barrios of Asuncion. During their visit, our team encountered very many sick animals requiring a variety of treatments and procedures. Nevertheless, they successfully executed both objectives, which benefited both local professionals in addition to the small animal population.

We would like to thank our team of dedicated volunteers, Fondation Brigitte Bardot as well as local partners Adoptame for their support and efforts that made this campaign possible.

Week Long Equine Welfare Clinics Finish up in Nicaragua

World Vets had a veterinary team in Nicaragua this past week. Together with local veterinarians and volunteers, they provided a week long equine welfare clinic. Working in a variety of locations, they reached both rural and urban horse populations, providing much needed veterinary services and care.

World Vets has been operating an equine welfare project, which provides free veterinary services to horses, in the Granada area for many years. We are thankful for the continual support of Fondation Brigitte Bardot of this ongoing endeavor.
