Infested working animals urgently need your help
Every month across the world, around 800 working animals arrive at SPANA’s clinics with dangerously high levels of parasites.
Many suffer from unbearable itching caused by lice or mites living in or on their skin. Tormented, the animals gnaw at their flesh or thrash around on the ground to try to relieve their distress.
Others are severely ill because of internal parasites like intestinal worms and lungworm. These eat away at internal organs, draining vital nutrients from the animals’ bodies until they’re weak and critically malnourished.
With so many cases of parasitic infestation, SPANA’s vets are struggling to reach every working animal in need.
Please help in any way you can – and help relieve the terrible suffering caused by parasites.
