City Working Equines
Partner group, Friendicoes mobile equine team, continue to do amazing work for working equines in the city of New Delhi. On a daily basis they treat horses and donkeys that work the busy and chaotic streets of their city. These animals are in constant danger from being hit by other vehicles that share the same road as them and unfortunately many animals are hit. This past month the team have attended to a number of cases including a donkey and horse that were hit by bikes. The donkey had an infected knee joint and the horse had damaged blood vessels and was bleeding. The team treated their wounds and advised the owners to rest their animals until their wounds had healed. In another case a horse had been hit by a truck and fell to the ground. The horse sustained multiple injuries- eye lid, knee joint and hip. The team cleaned the wounds with antiseptics and antibiotics, painkillers and a tetanus vaccine was administered. Animal Aid Abroad will continue to support the Friendicoes mobile clinic team in 2017 who work around the clock helping and rescuing working equines in the city of New Delhi.
