An epic journey throughout the land

For the past five years, I had the chance to monitor the health of dogs participating in Ivakkak, the annual traditional sled dog race held in Nunavik. Through this blog, I will talk about the ups and downs of a veterinarian who will spend two weeks managing canine health issues as well as my struggle to maintain drugs and veterinary products in such a cold environment.

Ivakkak is an epic adventure for both dogs and humans and, I hope this blog will help you get a sens of our journey throughout the land.
