Ethiopia is a country with over 2.5 million horses. There are struggles with both poverty and severe climatic events.
SPANA has one very busy veterinary clinic in Debre Zeit and two mobile clinics, treating over 11,000 animals each year. We also have three classrooms and an education centre. Teachers give lessons on animal welfare to around 2,050 children a year.
The main problems we treat are wounds, lameness, respiratory disease and a terrible fungal infection called EZL.
