January 17-21, 2022 - Koh Kong & Tatai
Our first wellness retreat of 2022 with our partner PPAWS was a huge success. The vet team traveled to Koh Kong region of Cambodia and spent 4 days treating the local resident’s pets. 398 animals were vaccinated against rabies. While 41 dogs and cats were spayed and neutered! They also treated open wounds, Transmissible Venereal (cancerous) Tumors, Pyometra, Mange, Scabies, and eye problems.
On the last day, the team was able to squeeze in a quick stop to Tatai on their way back to Phnom Penh! They visited the village, a local Pagoda and Canvas & Orchids Retreat. They vaccinated 34 animals and spay 5 female cats.
February 8-10 - Mondulkiri
For this Retreat the vet team at PPAWS visited Mondulkiri and were able to vaccinate 241 animals and spayed/neutered 16 dogs and cats!!!!! Many were in the hard-to-reach area of Bousra where there is no access to veterinary care. They also provided treatments for things like parasites, fungus, skin infections, eyes, wounds, lung infections, worms, fleas & ticks, and pyometra!
March 16, 2022 - Ratanakiri
The PPAWS team spent 3 days in Ratanakiri! During that short time, they were able to vaccinate 224 animals and performed 17 spay/neuter surgeries! They also provided treatments for a hernia, TVT, parasites, skin infections, eyes, wounds, worms, fleas & ticks, and pyometra!
The best part of these retreats is meeting the residents and spreading the word about animal welfare and the importance of vaccinations and sterilization. So many children participate and learn the value animals have in our lives.
