Vet visit once again:Friday August 17th to Rake n’ Scrape Site in Arthurs Town starting around 11 and going all afternoon. Then, on Saturday the 18th at Old Bight Primary starting early about 8am-2pm. Call Andrew Seymour: 342-6007 for additional info.
This past weekend we held our most successful veterinary clinics to date. It was exciting to see our efforts rewarded with these results. Dr. Davis performed eighteen (18) surgeries, many, many exams administering booster shots along with wormings. In total we saw 41 patients!
More people are purchasing Heartgard and Frontline. Dr. Davis introduced a new chewable flea product called NexGard, which we will now keep in stock. It offers protection for 4 – 10 pound dogs as well as the 3 regular sizes. One client reported when she tried it on her 7 week old puppy “The fleas were completely gone in 24 hours.”
It has been very encouraging to not only see the wild dog population reduced significantly, but to know that with education and the free services we offer people are caring more and treating their animals like pets.
We sincerely thank Dr. Davis and Andrew for two days of standing with no breaks.
Dr. Davis will be back in October and we hope to continue growing the clinic visits.

New date: Dr. Davis will be flying in on the morning flight and will be in Port Howe on Friday Feb. 12 and in Arthurs Town on Saturday Feb. 13.

Following a two week postponement and being spared the wrath of tropical storm Erika, we were able to bring Dr. Davis back for our third clinic of the year.
Due to a late plane arrival we didn’t start until 11:00 A.M. in Port Howe, where we were met by the most enthusiastic and patient crowd we have seen to date. Many exams, shots and fourteen surgeries were performed. It was wonderful to see three of the puppies Dr. Davis wormed in May back for spaying and neutering. One dog who had been dropped off and awaiting surgery proved to be a little reluctant about the whole thing. He simply ran away!
It was much quieter in Arthur’s Town on Sat. Dr. Davis spayed three and neutered one dog. He surgically removed a fatty growth from another. Deworming, rabies shots and travel documents were issued. Dr. Davis spayed the rescue dog Andrew nursed back to health and has found a home for her. We love a success story!
All in all, a successful weekend for the Humane population. We offer a huge thanks to Dr. Davis and Andrew for their time. And, Amelia, thanks so much for the photos!
Following a shaky start, we experienced one of our most successful veterinary visits. Friday morning saw the airline sending Dr. Davis’ bags to another island causing us to delay beginning seeing patients until 4:00 p.m. when he saw five dogs and a cat. He and Andrew treated a horse … trimmed hooves, floated teeth and medicated.
Saturday saw the team in Port Howe. After being absent from the Deep South for a few years, we had a tremendous turnout. Eleven surgeries, exams and various treatments were performed. We offered free deworming this time bringing in 18 very young and adorable puppies.
A rescued dog was brought in that had been abandoned, starving with a bad wound around her neck from the rope that had been used to tie her. She was treated and Andrew is caring for her until a permanent home can be found. She is very quiet and gentle … nice pet for someone.
In all, we had 59 animals seen by Dr. Davis and Andrew in two days. We hope to see more when we are back in the summer.
