Sight-saving medication for a working animal
Six-month-old Jacques transports water for his owner, Mohammad, in Nouakchott in Mauritania. The young donkey had been irritable lately and was having trouble looking out of one eye. Vets from our SPANA mobile clinic examined the donkey and found he had an ulcer and an associated conjunctivitis, causing him to keep his eye firmly shut. The team administered a special eye ointment and anti-inflammatory painkilling medicine to help heal the eye. Not only was his condition painful, if left untreated it could have led to blindness. Thanks to your kind donations however, a simple treatment meant Jacques was soon back to his normal self.
This thoughtful gift will help to provide sight-saving eye ointment to prevent blindness in animals like Jacques.
