I was attacked by dogs and was in a terrible state: the bites around my nose made it difficult to breathe and once I was brought to the SPCA stables I had emergency surgery. They took care of me lovingly for three months and today I am a happy and healthy donkey
The 2 year old cute donkey, Pinocchio, was found in the Mateh Benyamin area suffering from deep wounds on his nose, lower jaw and hind-quarters, apparently caused by dog bites. In a report written by the veterinarian after examining Pinocchio, it is written: “The donkey is suffering from deep cuts in the nostril and sinus areas that match dog bites. The deep cuts reach the frontal sinus area, preventing the donkey from breathing fully and correctly, the nostrils are blocked due to the collapse of the sinuses and parts of the sinuses that are blocking the lower section of the nostrils”.
The rehabilitation process that Pinocchio went through included surgery in the nostril area that relieved his breathing, His wounds were treated with antibiotics, analgesics and disinfecting washes.
After three months of intensive treatment Pinocchio recovered, was neutered and found a new home in the North.
