The GAAP Veterinary Clinic
Through the GAAP community clinic Vets International is supporting, we will be able to provide equal access to preventive veterinary care for all sectors of the community, and providing innovative and creative education for dog owners to increase the human-animal bond. The long-term objective is to use this program as a future model for other cities in Chile and throughout Latin America.
All services are offered to the public on a sliding scale basis using the national health care system which categorizes families according to their household income. We want all pet owners to understand that pet health care is just as much a part of a family’s health care needs as the family members themselves.
Increasing the Human-Animal Bond
Our public services include a special focus on engaging children. These services will include classes in dog training, responsible pet ownership, grooming your own dog and how to have fun with your pets
The GAAP clinic is centre for knowledge exchange and learning for students from North America and Chile. Using the expertise of local and foreign veterinarians, students from both countries will have the opportunity to experience working in a Chilean clinic and learning about the free-roaming dog issue first hand
