Animal Nepal treated a total of 2049 equine cases in 13 brick factories the period January-June. This revealed our latest quarterly report. A total of 507 working equines were immunized and dewormed. Most common health problems treated are harness and hobble wounds, mineral deficiency, dermatitis, eye infections and lameness. A total of 27 donkeys were reported to have died in our working area during this season.
Our staff organized four workshop of equine management for equine owners in which they were taught about preventive health care, shelter management, wound treatment and credit analysis.
Although the suffering of donkeys, mules and horses working in Kathmandu’s brick factories remains overwhelming, we are happy to conclude that the presence of wounds and injuries in our working area has reduced significantly
