Dango the donkey helps his owner, Abdoulaye, transport produce around the busy town of Ségou, Mali. One day, while pulling his heavy cart through hot, dusty streets, Abdoulaye noticed Dango was favouring his left front leg. As the day wore on, it became clear the donkey could no longer put his full weight on his right front leg. Dango was in severe pain and needed expert help.
Thankfully, despite rising fuel costs, SPANA’s mobile veterinary clinic was in town. The vehicle had travelled 150 miles from Bamako, Mali’s capital, for its regular monthly visit. Upon arrival, the team diagnosed Dango’s problem – his right front hoof was overgrown and distorted, making walking unbearable. Overgrown hooves can lead to several health issues, including agonising lameness.
Our vets got to work straight away carefully trimming the affected hoof, which provided Dango with instant relief. Thanks to our mobile clinics, thousands of working animals like Dango can receive the treatment they need and deserve every year.
