Dr. Tim Hunt and his team traveled by boat through villages in rural Alaska to offer veterinary services to pet owners.
Dr. Tim Hunt, founder of Dr. Tim's Pet Food brand, traveled through rural Alaska, USA, villages to conduct spay/neuter and vaccination clinics for rural pet owners.
Funded by a grant from the US Department of Agriculture and working along with two other people, one from the Alaska Native Rural Veterinary Corporation and another from Yukon Kuskokwim Delta Health Corporation, Hunt's group traveled by motor boat through several Yup'ik villages along the Kuskokwim river in western Alaska.
The group walked the villages and was often pointed to homes that own dogs by the children in the villages. The anesthetic protocol for the animals during the procedures included the use of a mobile gas anesthetic machine, which was donated by Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine.
Hunt and his team performed 40 spay and neuters and vaccinated nearly 200 dogs.
In total, Hunt and his team performed a total of 40 spays and neuters, as well as vaccinated nearly 200 dogs.
He says he hopes to increase the frequency of these rural spay/neuter and vaccination clinics. If you are interested, contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Angie Fitch, director of the Alaska Native Rural Veterinary Corporation, at email@example.com.
