AMRRIC members from Canberra, including Dr Alison Taylor and Dr Michael Archinal have travelled to Utopia north of Alice Springs to run a dog health program supported by Urapuntja Health, Barkly Shire and AMRRIC. Utopia is a group of outstations 350km north east of Alice Springs, and has had minimal vet services prior to August 2011. This is the second visit and the team desexed a total of 184 dogs and distributed hundreds of treatments for parasites, making a significant impact on dog health and helping improve general environmental and community health.
