MULES AND DONKEYS TREATMENT IN MANANG DISTRICT
Sneha’s Care conducted a five days equine health treatment camp in Manang district in coordination with District Livestock Service Office (DLSO). We started a health treatment camp recently from Manang and continued to Chame, Koto, Dharapani, and Tal village. The preliminary mules and donkey population survey conducted in February 2017 by Sneha’s Care showed 300 mules and donkeys in those areas. During the health camp, the team treated 180 mules and donkeys of the villages. Out of many diseases treated, the most common found health issues in the equines are hoof problem, Joint bone problem, tick problem, lack of nutritional diet, infection by worm, eyes problem (lachrymal duct block), pneumonia in foal and wound on a harness and some attack by a snow leopard.
The team also organized half day workshop titled “Good Health for Equine” for equine owners in DLSO Manang where 23 owners participated and discussed the health issues and also we made them aware regarding the proper handling of minor health issues in equines and showcased them how it can care. Also, another similar camp will be organized in September 2017 by the organization.
