Jeera – The Horse Who Wouldn’t Give Up

Titwala ijeera-collagen Thane District, has a lot of equine population. Mostly ponies, which are used to carry passengers to the famous temple there. Famous Temple, infamous work. The ponies and horses of Titwala are some of the most ill maintained. Local NGOs and animal activists have not been able to make any difference to the condition of these equines.

 Jeera was dying on the road. His foot was being eaten away by dogs and rats because he had no energy left in him to defend himself. Inside our ambulance he was administered 2 hours of on-the-spot treatment with saline, pain killers and some other essential medication. He stood up after the medication.

For 3 weeks Jeera gave the toughest of fights, against infection and debilitation. All this time we ignored “expert“ veterinary advice to put him to sleep. In week 5 we decided to give him his well earned chance to give the last fight.

With the co-operation of Bombay SPCA and a famous Equine Vet, his leg was amputated beyond the fetlock. The surgery was a resounding success.
