February 10th, 2011

We got in our first patient a few days ago. It's a Roadside Hawk that was hit by a car. Wing is smashed up pretty good but the vet here is amazing and there is hope. Also the dog is doing well. Three different vets have looked at her. She has TVT, which is a disease causing tumors and is common in dogs here because few are spayed or neutered. Luckily one of the vets had the medicine to treat it (it's not easy to come by down here and not cheap) and she received her first injection last Saturday. She's also been treated for her mange and is almost starting to look a little less pathetic. Yesterday I walked into town and got some more bootleg dvd's. Hey for $2 a piece I can't pass them up! 

I have been seeing a lot of amazing animals here and here are some pics of a few of them. I did not take the following pics I just found them online but wanted to share some of the beauty I see daily here.
