See Dr Eliran filing Amelia’s teeth

We're pleased to say that Amelia received here dental treatment from Dr Eliran this week - he filed her teeth to making eating far more comfortable. Donkey teeth continue to grow throughout their life, so without filing, sharp barbs can grow which prevent the donkey eating properly. This means they can lose weight, which is particularly worrying when it's an older donkey. Amelia is now far happier, and will join Group C where she'll receive special enriched food and chopped hay. Here's Dr Eliran at work: [embed]https://youtu.be/URxj6bmhtMY[/embed]

Amelia at the Sanctuary needs her teeth filing!

This week, Moussa noticed that Amelia is looking a little slow and weak. Following a visit from Dr Eliran, it's been decided she needs her teeth filing! Donkeys need to have their teeth kept in tip top condition to help them eat. We'll keep you updated on Amelia's treatment but in the meantime here's a video update from Dusty: [embed]https://youtu.be/_uySEetR75k[/embed]

Veterinary care for Joyce at the Sanctuary

Although Russell's eye is now recovered and he's back with the main herd, poor Joyce has also had problems with her eye this week. Here you can see Dr Eliran, the vet, washing her eyes and ‘painting’ them to check for possible ulcers. Dr Eliran then used Joyce's own blood to produce a natural serum, which will act as a medicine for the ulcer. Joyce will receive this together with two types of eye drops for the next five days. Thank you for all your support which helps to pay for all the veterinary care at the Sanctuary: <iframe title="YouTube video player" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/19zqzQj4X_g?rel=0" width="560" height="315" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe>
