Requena, Peru – 2009

Our most remote location to date. Our Vet Ventures crew flew into Iquitos, Peru, where we met up with Peruvian veterinarians from Amazon CARES. It was then a 20 hour boat trip up the Amazon River to Requena, Peru. They had never had a veterinarian in Requena, so the group was a welcome site for the community. We set up in a school classroom, just off the market and performed surgery on 300 animals in a 10 day period.
