We take the good health of our own pets for granted. We know, if they become sick or injured, there are always good veterinary doctors close that can take a look at one or the other and give expert care.
We also know, when it comes time for vaccinations, our pets have any number of places to go — to be inoculated. It should be that way all around the world, shouldn’t it? Yes, it should, but that is not always the case.
Six years after the horrifying earthquake in 2010, Haiti remains one of the poorest countries in the world.
Most of its inhabitance can barely take care of themselves, let alone have their dog’s cared for.
Fortunately, the U.S. Military – along with other agencies – have stepped up to help these people and their pets. Vaccinations, spaying/neutering, and deworming have come to Haiti, and it has done a world of good!
After the break, go on over to the next page and read up on the effort and the observations of a member of the U.S. Army’s Veterinary Corps during a recent trip to Haiti.
