World Vets Teams Return from Asia

During the month of November World Vets had three veterinary teams in three different countries in Asia. We provided free high volume sterilization campaigns in Laos, Cambodia and Nepal respectfully. Each project was unique in its own way, though as part of each campaign we not only performed free spay/neuter, but also provided free rabies vaccinations for animal patients. This was important to include as part of our free services since rabies is still prevalent in these countries, and we felt it essential to aid local efforts in eradicating this fatal virus.

This was our first time working in Laos and our campaign was met with a great result and promise for future efforts.

In Cambodia our local partnerships continue to grow and in turn made additional services available for animal patients this year such as free microchipping.

And in Nepal, our free services continue to benefit the street dog population of Kathmandu to provide not only sterilization, but other much needed veterinary care.
