Wounded horse saved by FOUR PAWS in Romania
An old carriage horse was involved in a car accident near Bucharest and severely injured. The Romanian police informed FOUR PAWS to give assistance to the injured horse. Upon our arrival we found the horse roped to a fence, bleeding from the posterior area and limping from a back leg. FOUR PAWS horse experts took care of the horse immediately, prescribed pain medication and tried to detect the full extent of the trauma. FOUR PAWS provided the old mare with first aid, some food and water and stopped the bleeding temporarily.
The old mare will fully recover soon
The old carriage horse was taken to the stables of Saftica, where her injuries have been examined precisely. An X-ray fortunately revealed that her limping back leg did not show any fracture. Together with collaborator Dr. Florin Mlagiu, FOUR PAWS vet Ovidu Rosu anaesthetised the mare and operated on the mammary gland in order to surgically close the wound. Currently, her medical condition is just fine and she is stable. She will receive further antibiotics and analgesics daily. We are very confident that the mare will fully recover, providing there are no unexpected complications.
FOUR PAWS namend the horse “Nuga”. As she will stay in FOUR PAWS’ custody, we will take the best decision for her future and provide her a peaceful life.
