Wound dressings and bandages for an injured animal.
Dante the donkey walks as many as 40,000 steps each day, helping his owner transport scrap metal so he can earn a small living. While making his way through a scrapyard in Chemaia, Morocco, Dante caught his leg on a sharp piece of rusty metal and suffered a wound to his front leg. If left untreated, the wound could become infected, or put the donkey at risk of potentially fatal diseases such as tetanus. Dante’s owner brought him to the SPANA centre where our vets cleaned the wound, applied a dressing, and bandaged the leg to start the healing process. Dante was also vaccinated with an anti-tetanus injection to help protect him in the future.
This gift will provide bandages and wound dressings to help more animals like Dante get back on their feet.
