Mamo the carthorse was treated by our team in Debre Birhan, Ethiopia, for severe harness wounds on his chest and neck. Wounds are a common problem in this city, where horses play an important role working alongside rubbish collectors. With only a makeshift harness at his owner’s disposal, Mamo’s sensitive skin was being rubbed raw as he worked each day. Our dedicated vets got to work immediately, carefully cleaning Mamo’s wounds and applying zinc oxide to encourage healing. They also provided his owner with harness padding and demonstrated how to properly fit the harness to prevent Mamo from developing similar wounds in future.
