VIDA Medical, Dental & Veterinary Programs in Guatemala

This was my second trip to Central America with VIDA and I am proud to say it was better than my first. The overall organization was great and I enjoyed the atmosphere the veterinarians and leaders provided. The leaders and veterinary assistants were always available to help during clinics. One thing I enjoyed was that during the last clinic, we were told to research more in depth one thing we found during clinic and talk about it with the group. I enjoyed this because for the rest of my life, I will always remember my cases of ascites and the causes and treatments.

Yes, I recommend this program
