Only 24 hours after arriving in Nicaragua, WSPA's Disaster Response Team has been able to assist 1,219 animals across two sites. Working with local community leaders in Las Grecias and the Oriental Comarcas, the veterinary team has treated the sick and injured animals with various medications including:
- Deworming medicine
- Wounds cleaned and treated with topical spray and antiseptic
- Respiratory and allergic treatments
Tomorrow the team will be joined by local partner A.MER.TE before heading off, in two groups, to the remaining communities to distribute fodder and treat the affected animals.
