Stop the suffering caused by deadly parasites

Parasites are one of the biggest threats to working animals worldwide and affect every kind of animal in every country where we work.

Ahmed, a 14-year-old horse, arrived at one of our clinics in Morocco recently. He was suffering with mange, caused by an infestation of microscopic mites. Desperate to relieve the incessant itching, he had scratched and rubbed his skin until it was raw, broken and the hair had fallen out. Luckily Ahmed was treated immediately by one of our vets. 

While many ticks and lice are easy to spot on the skin, internal parasites such as worms cause damage from the inside, unseen. The effect on animals can be devastating, draining their bodies of nutrients and weakening them until they die a slow, painful death.

Of all the working animals you helped last year, two-thirds had parasites – most were easily treatable but over 10,000 were extreme cases that put the animals’ lives at risk.

Our vets spend a huge amount of time fighting their painful impact. That’s why your support is urgently needed – our resources are stretched to the limit and thousands of infested animals could go untreated.

Your gift today can help stop the suffering caused by deadly parasites:

£4   could pay for two sets of tick tweezers

£10 could buy antibiotics to treat a bacterial infection suffered because of mites

£20 could help pay for the glass slides for a blood parasite test

£39  could treat 25 infested horses with insecticide spray

£80 could help us to identify worm eggs in faeces at a mobile lab

Thank you
