Dr. Tim Hunt visits KYUK

by Kristin Hall on August 29, 2014

After Dr. Tim Hunt administered over 70 free spay and neuters around the YK Delta this week it’s no surprise why he’s currently in the running to be America’s Favorite Veterinarian. He even has his own pet food brand very appropriately named Dr. Tim’s. Dr. Tim was able to sit down with us and talk about his experience as a veterinarian, dog mushing, and the free spay and neuter program.

Much praise was directed at the ATG Memorial Park, while others pointed out some still pressing local issues like theft, drugs, and the increase of traffic around YKHC. Frequent caller, Cezary also weighs in on being a liberal. Listen to the entire show below.
