Veterinarians needed to help CVM partners on the Navajo Nation with their pet population control.  “According to the Navajo Nation Animal Control, there are more than 3,000 individuals treated each year by Indian Health Services and local clinics for animal attacks and bites on the Navajo Nation. Most of these individuals are children and the elderly.” (nhonews.com) The Navajo Nation is working on legislation to address this problem with pet owners and Dr. Kelly Bia Upshaw, head of the Navajo Veterinary Services and longtime CVM partner, has asked CVM to provide veterinary volunteers to help pet owners to limit the number of breeding animals.  

 

Dates: Sept 12-15, 2022

Location: Tuba City, AZ (mobile clinic)

Needed: 4 Veterinarians

Trip Coordinator: Dr. Mary Peter

Cost: $30 per day ($35 if you purchase bulk meals to prep as a team)

 

Volunteer housing will likely be at the local discipleship center (cots and sleeping bags). Volunteers will need to provide their own travel to the site (about 3.5 hours from PHX airport) and breakfast & dinner. There is a grocery store nearby and fast food options also available. Also, volunteers are welcome to bring their own surgery gloves and suture or adhesive that they are used to working with. All other materials, equipment, medications, and Veterinary Technician assistance will be provided by the reservation Veterinary Program.
