Letter to the Editor: Don’t let the San Pedro Animal Hospital close down

Monday, May 11th, 2015

Letters-to-the-EditorDear Government of Belize Administrators,
I am writing to urge you NOT to force the San Pedro Animal Hospital to shut down. I have used SPAH for several of my pets and always received excellent service. My personal opinion is that any animal hospital on Ambergris Caye is better than no animal hospital on the island. No one forces people to go to this establishment. They go willingly. If anyone believes the service is sub-par, they do not have to go there. With a lack of animal care facilities on this island, closing this facility would be an injustice to the people and their pets living on the island. This would hurt tourism as fewer people would like to come without their pets. It would also be prohibitively expensive for local folks to take their pets to Belize City for help. The ultimate result of closing the SPAH would be unnecessary pain and suffering for animals and pets. Unless the GOB can and will provide a replacement, how can you justify closing an animal care facility? Closing the San Pedro Animal Hospital serves no purpose than to causes greater suffering for the beloved pets of San Pedro, and thereby their owners as well.
Steve Plater

  1. Agreed! As a prospective property owner and current pet owner, not having an animal hospital on the island would nix any move to this Island. I can deal with the crime and the trash, but to have no reliable animal hospital for my animals is a real deal breaker for me.
