26 Aug Extra TLC for Shetlands and Donkeys
This month our donkeys and Shetlands enjoyed a clip and shampoo which will eliminate any lice and mites. They then had a gentle spray of lavender oil and water which is a very good natural deterrent of mites and flies. They thoroughly enjoyed the whole process with Taco having a suck on a Dale’s hand.
It is so important that we keep all our animals in the best condition possible. Because some of them have had a bad start in life, or years of neglect, their immune systems can be compromised, and so we are always vigilant about keeping them as healthy as possible. We like to use homeopathic remedies as much as possible, however understand that this cannot always be achieved and conventional treatments are used. Our vets have now got to know our residents and can advise on the best possible remedies and treatments.
