WVS SENDS EMERGENCY BURN TREATMENT TO NEPALESE COWS

Fri 30th Jun 2017

WVS have sent emergency medication out to Nepal to treat cows caught in a tragic fire. 

Animal welfare charity Sneha’s Care in Nepal is working desperately to treat the survivors of a fire that struck a cow shed in the district of Gokarneshwor.

In the early hours of Saturday 17th June, authorities were called to a cattle farm suffering a devastating fire. Of the 122 cows housed in the shed, only 15 survived the blaze. The survivors are now being treated for severe burns by vets and a team from Sneha’s Care.

We’ve sent out an urgent parcel of Flamazine cream, used for the prevention and treatment of infections in burn wounds, which will be a lifeline for the remaining cows. We respond to emergency situations across the globe, sending out veterinary parcels when it is needed most. These parcels offer life-saving treatments and give the animals the best chance of a full recovery.

Following Nepal’s earthquake in 2015, WVS sent veterinary teams out to rescue animals injured in the disaster. We have also trained a number of Nepalese vets through our international training courses. A huge thanks to Tony Sherwood, our amazing courier at Mail Boxes Etc. Bournemouth for ensuring that the package gets there fast.
