AHT VETS GIVE THE GIFT OF SIGHT TO ANIMALS AROUND THE WORLD
Treating horses, dogs and cats in the UK often means our vets are able to treat animals in need of help around the world. Recently our vets travelled to China, Cambodia and Vietnam to give the gift of sight to Moon bears.
During the three-week trip the team from the Animal Health Trust’s ophthalmology unit trained 17 vets from three charitable organisations, examined 56 animals and operated on 12 of these in three countries!
The animals ranged from dogs, a gibbon, macaques and Moon and Sun bears. You can read more about the experiences of our Head of Ophthalmology, Claudia Hartley, during the six years she’s been travelling to China to help train vets and treat animals, by clicking here.
