Maggots were infested in Ganga’s wound:
‘Ganga’ engaged in a territorial fight with other stray cows while searching for food on the road and broke her horn.
Her untreated injury was exposed to dirt, dust, and pollution. Gradually the wound started spreading while she rubbed her affected horn against the light post or any roadside walls to get relief from the pain. Slowly her wound developed maggots and the rotten horn fell off and maggots started digging deeper into her wound. A rescued group from Ahmedabad found her on the road in that painful condition and brought her to Panjrapole where our team checked Ganga and treated her injury. The good news is our doctor managed to clean all the maggots from the damaged area and put a bandage to prevent the wound to spread.
Now Ganga is happily living with her other friends in Panjrapole where she is getting fresh food, clean drinking water and medical care and recovering rapidly.
Dehydrated ‘Meera’ received treatment from Jivdaya Team:
‘Meera’ was found almost unconscious on the road due to severe dehydration. She has been rescued and brought to Panjrapole (Abandoned Cow Shelter) where team Jivdaya treated her for dehydration and a few more physical injuries that she had while staying on the street. This is unfortunate that people use these innocent animals like objects and discard them once their purpose has been solved. But there are a lot of kind-hearted people who take care of these unfortunate lives and give them a new life with food, shelter, and love.
Now Meera is a part of the Panjrapole family. Soon she will be recovered and have a peaceful life with her friends in the shelter.
‘Golu’ and ‘Monty’ was in a bad condition after their owner abandoned them. They searched for food and shelter everywhere but failed and started living on the road. One night both were crossing the road searching for food when a speeding truck hit them. The younger brother Monty died on the spot where Golu was saved by luck but injured himself severely. A cow rescuer immediately took him to Ahmedabad Panjrapole (Abandoned Cow Shelter) and contacted Jivdaya for his treatment. Our team went to Panjrapole and treated Golu but unfortunately, Golu lost the vision in his right eye.
Presently, Golu is recovering from his physical and mental trauma but thankfully now he has a roof over his head, and he will never go hungry again. Also, there are a group of loving people taking care of Golu and many abandoned cows like him around the clock.
The monsoon is not over yet in Ahmedabad, but rain is decreased significantly. But post-monsoon miseries are affecting all homeless cows in the city. Potholes, cracked, muddy roads and unhygienic conditions of post-water logging spread infection rapidly to these poor cows. We received many complaints about abandoned cows where we treated them through our Mobile clinic van, in the shelter, and we also provided outdoor service to various cow shelters that closely work with us.
Here is a treatment summary for Aug’22 given below
Cow with leg fracture- 1
Cow with severe Dehydration – 2
Cow with laceration wound- 1
Cow with Spinal injury- 2
Cow with Uterus prolapsed – 1
Cow with multiple fractures – 1
Leg amputation surgery performed (Calf) - 1
Thank you for making it all happen.
Bakhrol village is 50 km away from Ahmedabad. Bhala Bhai, who established his factory in that village, also established a shelter house for abandoned cows just beside his factory. Everyone in the town loves Bhalabhai for his kind nature. Recently we received a call from Bhalabhai that ‘Gomti,’ a pregnant cow, is not being able to give birth due to a spinal defect from a road accident that she met long back. Our team of doctors, vet assistants, and program coordinators immediately left for Bakhrol.
When we reach the destination, we came to know that the baby had already died in the mother’s womb long back, and villagers took the dead baby out already through a natural process. Our team right away started the procedures of cleaning and secured Gomti from post-birth infection.
It was not an easy task to ease the pain of a heartbroken mother, but our team managed to give her the proper medication to save her life. Right now, Gomti is recovering from her injuries with the help of our doctors and immense love from Bhalabhai and his family. We thank people like Bhalabhai who give a new life to all these unfortunate homeless lives.
