Our donkey welfare checks are still ongoing. We attended to this donkey that had foot abscess in Ongata Rongai. An abscess can develop in the foot when the wound is infected and pus builds up. The donkey also had wounds on the breast region. We showed the owner how to make local breast collars in order to prevent wounds.
A report was also made at our desk of donkeys being mistreated at Kiserian. They had wounds all over their bodies yet they were still being made to work under those tough conditions. We educated them about proper harnessing and we shall be making regular follow-ups.
We also visited a donkey farm in Athi River. We trimmed the hooves and showed the owners and users how to use halters instead of tying tight ropes on the fetlock.
