A not small part of our trip planning has revolved around making sure that our soon to be 14 year old Cocker Spaniel “Patton” has had access to appropriate healthcare during our cruise. We are happy to report that Grenada has a college of veterinary medicine at St. George’s University that is the equal of any that you would find in the United States. The school’s faculty and students that we interacted with were all extremely kind and caring in all of their interactions with Patton and they readily addressed the health issues that Patton has been facing as he approaches his 14th birthday. In addition, they have been very accommodating as we have worked our way through the paperwork jungle that is a part of bringing our four legged family member along on our journey through multiple countries with varying and inconsistent requirements for entry. If you are fortunate enough to be able to bring a four legged companion along on your Caribbean adventure, you can find comfort knowing that your furry pal will receive top level care at the St. George’s University small animal clinic. They can be reached at (473) 435-2900. Tell them “Patton” sent you.
