  2. January 21, 2018 -- We had a great start for the new year. http://spaypanama-chiriqui.org/112th.html And by the end of the day, the February clinic was already full. We are now taking reservations for the March 18 clinic. Even though we had numerous no-shows and last-minute cancellations, Dr. Tello sterilized 43 dogs and cats, bringing our total thus far to 4,223. He also performed several other procedures, including removal of a HUGE mammary tumor from a dog. We have (and are) having a tremendous positive effect for our community. And we continue to reduce the births of puppies and kittens that would suffer terribly. I will never forget the scores of homeless, mange-covered, starving and dying dogs that roamed the streets before we began the clinics in March of 2006. My heartfelt thanks to Dr. Andres Tello, our dedicated team of volunteers, our donors (financially or otherwise), and to everyone who brings animals to be sterilized. Big hugs, Dottie
  3. On July 23rd, 2017, Dr. Tello sterilized 47 dogs and cats and we passed the 4,000 mark. In our little 11 clinics per year with only one doctor, we have now sterilized 4,017 dogs and cats! http://spaypanama-chiriqui.org/107th.html We apologize that people had to wait longer than usual. Don Binder, who usually weighs the animals and injects the anesthesia, was unable to be there. All of our dedicated volunteers are excellent, but the ones tasked for doing Don's usual jobs were not accustomed to doing so. See my web page for an extraordinary procedure Dr. Tello did with a dog's badly broken rear leg in lieu of surgery. (And there are pictures of it in my photo album. The link to the album is on the web page.) But it turned out that the owners were unable to give the specialized care that the dog required, so I ended up taking the dog to Dr. Tello at the border on Tuesday for surgery. I went back to get the dog on Friday. Dr. Tello said the surgery went very well. He inserted a pin to stabilize the leg and he will remove it at our August 20th clinic. In the meantime, the dog is with me. I will give him the necessary pain medications and antibiotics, remove the sutures in a week, and then bathe him and give him a haircut. Bud and Marcelyn of Boquete are owners of www.chiriqui.life web site. They graciously came to the clinic in Volcan to do a podcast of me regarding the clinics. When it's finished, I will post the link on other various sites, explaining that. Chiriqui.Life is mainly about things-Boquete but there is other useful information as well. And that Bud and Marcelyn invite everyone to come visit. No need to sign up (free) unless people want to post or listen to the various podcasts. Our next clinic will be on August 20, 2017. Not even August yet, it is already half full. My heartfelt thanks to everyone who volunteers, donates, and brings their animals to the clinic to be sterilized. Together we ARE making a difference!

  4. http://spaypanama-chiriqui.org/106th.html 49 animals were spayed/neutered by Dr. Andres Tello, our wonderful veterinarian. He sterilized 30 dogs and 19 cats. Of the dogs, 22 were female and 8 were male. Of the cats, 9 were female and 10 were male. This brings our total of dogs and cats sterilized to 3,970. Even with so many animals, we did not have an extra-long day because there were a lot of male cats. The surgery is quicker for them than the females. And there was only one pregnancy, a cat. Dr. Tello charges $10 extra for pregnancies because the surgery takes longer and is more complicated. We are grateful to see so many Panamanian owners who dearly love their dogs and cats! Now we very seldom see any underfed animals. Most are fat, happy, and well cared for. See the photo album for pictures of many loving owners and their pets. https://www.flickr.com/photos/panama_expat/sets/72157683717228340 We had a total of 9 no-shows: 1 female cat, 1 male cat, 6 female dogs (2 with tumors), and 1 male dog. Alex Rios cleaned the teeth of one dog today. Please make an appointment to have this procedure done if you wish. The cost is $25.00. Our next clinic will be on July 23, 2017. Please call for an appointment right away. The clinics fill up rapidly. Thanks to everyone who participates in the various ways to make our clinics a success! Dottie
  5. 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. Big hugs, Dottie
  6. February 19th, 2017 - 48 animals were spayed/neutered by Dr. Andres Tello, our wonderful veterinarian. He also performed several exams and removed a venereal tumor from a female dog. To date we have sterilized 3,799 dogs and cats. http://spaypanama-chiriqui.org/102nd.html See the link on the web page for the photo album of pictures taken during the clinic. 16 dogs and 6 cats were either last-minute cancelations or no-shows, which is deplorable. We will implement a new procedure in the future. Dogs or cats to be sterilized that have other issues (in heat, pregnant, tumors, hernias, amputations, etc.) require more time. When those animals are interspersed during the day, people who have animals for sterilization only have to wait too long. Therefore, animals with additional issues will be scheduled toward the end of the day. (Thanks to Andrea Gonella for the suggestion.) Our next clinic will be on March 19, 2017. Please call for an appointment right away. The clinics fill up rapidly. Thanks to everyone who participated in our clinics today, and to those who had their pets sterilized. Always remember that TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE! Dottie
  7. http://spaypanama-chiriqui.org/100th.html We had a grand celebration for our 100th clinic! See my web page for details. 45 animals were spayed/neutered by Dr. Andres Tello, our wonderful veterinarian, plus he performed 10 other procedures: exams, extracting teeth, removing growths from an already sterilized dog, etc. Three of my own dogs were among the 10 extra procedures. With one, he removed a growth from underneath her chin and recommended a medication for another condition she has. With another, he removed a growth on her gum in her mouth. At this November 20, 2016 clinic Dr. Tello sterilized 25 dogs and 20 cats. Of the dogs, 19 were female and 6 were male. Of the cats, 17 were female and 3 were male. This brings our total of sterilized dogs and cats to 3,707. We never know what will be necessary at a clinic, so thank God for the expertise of Dr. Tello. One small dog was in heat and she bled profusely during spaying because of the distended veins. Dr. Tello stopped the bleeding but said she needed a blood transfusion. Go to my web page and the link to my Flickr album to see pictures of how this blood transfusion was done. Please call for appointments for January 22nd. Call quickly because we already have 34 appointments on the list! (No clinic in December.) Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone! Dottie
