Veterinarys are available in Nicaragua but in a country where often times the people have a hard time feeding themselves, animals are often neglected and underfed. Horses and cattle are a part of everyday transportation and work for a large amount of the population but yet many are unable to properly care for their animals.
A group of veterinary students from Oregon State University will travel to Nicaragua this summer to conduct six days of free clinics on a rural island that has no regular veterinary care.
The contingent, members of the OSU chapter of the International Veterinary Students’ Association, will pay their own way to spend the first week of August on Ometepe Island, home to an estimated 10,000 people and 50,000 animals.
