There is a free clinic in Aticama every couple of months that provides free sterilization services. The local ex-pat community conducts fund raisers to offset the cost and a vet comes from Tepic (60 kms away) to perform the operations with the assistance of a couple of retired RNs from the north. I scheduled Sarah's vaccinations for the free clinic on Saturday. The cost was 250 pesos or about $20. US; much more than the local vets charge but still much less than it would cost in the US. The reasons I decided to go with the most expensive were 1. the drugs come from Bayer and are the best you can buy and 2. The vet who administered the shots is very professional and he included a shot record in case I ever decide to take Sarah to the U.S. Sarah was a very good girl when she received her two shots and she didn't even get a lollipop!
