Improvised Animal Hospital

In a country where medical supplies are scarce for humans, let alone animals, two self-trained veterinarians are using whatever they can find to build the materials they need to treat the animals they take care of.

In the master bathroom stands Tsem, a four-month-old foal with long, knobby legs, a fuzzy brown body and an afro of a mane. A matching puppy lies between her tiny hoofs. The scene would be charming, if somewhat unusual, if it weren’t for the hideous wounds covered by the gauze bandages that swathe the foal’s entire hind quarters and abdomen.This is the ICU.

Much more including photos at the link. Stumbled on it while searching respiratory stuff. Funny how Google works. Some days it is more like Giggle.
