The story of a little donkey from Pakistan
My name is Epi.
I am a dwarf in size and height. My owner purchased me when I was a foal. My mother died when I was just 10 days old. I was born with lots of difficulties. My mother’s owner had no idea how to deal with my mother’s condition - she had dystocia.
He ruptured all the reproductive organs of my mother when she was delivering me and inserted unhygienic hands. Going through extreme pain I was finally delivered.
My mother faced very serious injuries and had a very bad infection. Her back was swollen and she remained off her feed for the rest of her short life. She was in extreme pain and unable to cry.
The owner had no idea how to improve the health of my mother. Finally, after 10 days she died of pain and the heavy infection. The owner left me unattended so I wandered off to find food and reached one home that had some food and love. I stayed there for 3 days.
On the third day the owner of my mother came to my new home and found me. But I refused to go with him.
My new owner paid my price to my old owner and I had a new home. I have been living with my new family from that day to today. I am lucky to have attention from the SAYVET team who arrived here at the village where I live. The expert team thoroughly checked my health and mouth.
They suggested my master give me soft food. They also treated me for worms.
They also gave me pain killer medicine and some multivitamins. This medicine will help me to work harder carrying bricks and rubble for my master.
Thanks to Animal Aid Abroad who support Dr Viram and his SAYVET team help animals like me in Pakistan.
