These accidents have devastating consequences, if they are not immediately fatal. Those that survive usually need multiple complicated procedures. Bandages and casts, wound dressings, supportive antibiotics and analgesics, and prolonged stabling rest are often the very minimum. Even in these cases, it will be a long road to recovery.
Some animals will require more complicated operations due to injuries to their vital organs. Sadly, although we provide immediate care and do whatever we can to save these vulnerable animals, the nature of their injuries means that some of them don’t make it.
This is just one of the many heartbreaking effects the Covid-19 pandemic is having on the world’s working animals. But, thanks to your kind support, we are doing everything we can to be there for them when they need us most.
