pakistan march17 2Total of eight visits (twice per week) have been carried out treating a total of 173 animals during the month of March 2017. Animals included:

5 cattle
8 goats
137 donkeys
23 camels

Most of the animals were treated for external and internal parasites.

13 injury cases were treated and dressed for chronic wounds. The owners were educated for regular wound cleaning and redressing along with therapeutic treatment.

9 minor injuries and internal fight injuries were treated and owners were directed for regular cleaning and application of local cream over the wound

5 animals received treatment for minor injuries requiring simple surgical procedures. Suturing was done to close the wounds including two with teat rupture cases.

This is the time to visit external parasites on the animals 

and also the season where grasses have grown as a result of good and timely rains. The sand harbors parasites and their eggs so this is a good time to treat these animals with anti-parasitic drugs orally to reduce the risk of heavy parasitic load.

The coming season is very difficult for these animals in the Thar desert. 

This area has regular seasonal winds between April-May which not only increase the risk of thirst, but also animals are prone to heat stress. In addition, there is history of fires during this season and both human settlements and their animals are at risk.

Animal Aid Abroad will continue to support Dr Viram's clinic work who is the only animal welfare and vet organisation operating in this area of Pakistan.
