Q. I am moving to Bamako, Mali (West Africa). I'd like to have some medications on hand for anything that might arise with my 2 cats. Any suggestions?

A. I apologize, I just realized that apparently that website was hacked and the addresses on this page are all Vancouver hospitals. I suggest you contact the consulate or embassy of Mali and ask them for assistance in finding a veterinary clinic in Bamako. There is a veterinary council in Mali and the embassy should be able to at least give you a contact to that. But I am sure they have phone books. You could also try yellow pages for Mali.

A. Here ia a list of Veterinary Hospitals and Veterinarians in Bamako, Mali. Since every area in Afrika has its own diseases you should contact a veterinarian of your choice in Bamako and ask what medications you should bring and which vaccinations are necessary for that area. They will be able to help you much more specifically.
