To treat Cissoko’s colic, the team administered anti-spasmodic medication to relieve the painful cramps. They also administered a deworming treatment and a multivitamin injection to improve his general condition. To ensure he made a full recovery, Cissoko was hospitalised at the centre, where his progress was closely monitored and he was given gradually increasing amounts of high-quality feed and water.
As Cissoko recovered, Sidi was advised on the best diet for his horse to improve his health, body condition and energy levels. Sidi was instructed to wet Cissoko’s food and introduce green grass into his diet.
After two weeks, Cissoko began to show steady signs of improvement, gaining weight and strength.
Without your support, Cissoko would not have received the essential treatment he needed. Instead, he would have endured gut-wrenching cramps, leaving him starved, exhausted and unable to eat. His deteriorating health would have only led to a life of misery and, in the worst-case scenario, an agonising death.
During this time of economic hardship, so many working animals are suffering from malnutrition, leaving them desperately weak as they fight for survival.
Could you make a donation today, so that animals like Cissoko can receive the lifesaving care they need? Thank you so much.
