Vets Beyond Borders


Moruya Vet Nurses

2 Moruya Veterinary nurses making a difference in Sikkim northern India.

Denise Thomas & Nikki Reid both vet nurses at the Moruya Veterinary Hospital told members of their experiences in Sikkim a small state in far northern India with the programme Vets Beyond Borders.  They assisted local vets in desexing street dogs which are a huge problem.  The conditions in which they worked could not be compared to the sterile environment they are used to, but both agreed it was an experience that would last a lifetime.
