Pakistan Update - SAYVET
Four main clinics were run with 133 animals treated - 133 donkeys, 23 camels and 7 goats.
The type of conditions treated: general weakness 87, skin allergies 08, dermatitis 12, ulcerative wounds 04, lameness 6, indigestion 5, loss of appetite 3, RTI 7 and one with a maggot wound. Most of the animals treated with anti-parasitic drugs.
Winter is the favourable season for female camels to give birth and also the season to conceive but food scarcity has caused many problems.
Another drawback is that owners of animals only concentrate on productive animals, while others are neglected.
Sayvet team are planning to develop some education material at the community level in the near future and our first priority with our upcoming clinics is to feed malnourished animals.
