March 19, 2017 - 44 animals were spayed/neutered on this date. See http://spaypanama-chiriqui.org/103rd.html
Dr. Tello sterilized 24 dogs and 20 cats. Of the dogs, 20 were female and 4 were male. Of the cats, 16 were female and 4 were male. This brings our total of dogs and cats sterilized to 3,843.
Additional procedures included: complicated and lengthy removal of three big tumors from dogs; three pregnant cats; one pregnant dog; and the necessity to put down a dog that had advanced cancer.
Alex Rios, a young man who is one of our volunteers, does a great job cleaning the teeth of dogs. He cleaned the teeth of five dogs today. Volcan dentist Dr. Ben-Hur Sinclair came to visit the clinic today. He observed Alex and said he did a very good job.
If your dog has already been sterilized or will be on clinic day, you can make an appointment to have the dog's teeth cleaned. The cost is $25 for cleaning, with additional cost if extractions are necessary.
Our next clinic will be on April 23rd. Call right away for an appointment because the clinics fill up fast.
As always, my heartfelt thanks to everyone who participated in the clinic: Dr. Andres Tello, our wonderful volunteers, donors of funds or food and drinks, and to everyone who brought their animals to be sterilized.
