++ Campaign report from our castration action in Frumușani, Romania ++

Our team from the SUST Orphan Animal Hospital Bucharest was able to castrate 63 animals in Frumușani, Romania in March

The very idea of the Frumusani campaign was to time it for a period of good weather - but the team was caught ice cold with sub-zero temperatures and even snow despite the relatively sunny weather.

This campaign is part of our long-term engagement with the local community. We are proud of the great cooperation we have in Frumusani with Claudia Dumitru and Mrs. Doina Dut. There was only one problem in the premises we have. The heating.

We managed to tune the mains voltage carefully, thanks to alternately plugging in and unplugging our devices when not in use, so that the fuse could withstand the heating fans.

But this did not stop us from working and fortunately we received support from Dr. Mircea Stefanache, who brought us an additional oven from her father's house so that our team did not suffer too much from the freezing cold. All our cat patients were additionally warmed with bed bottles.
 

With the team in Frumusani the veterinary students Diana Wald, Alex Tanasescu, Andreea Gontoiu and Olya - and the experienced veterinarians Cristina Obretin and Ale Naum.

The team did a great job, special thanks also to Andrea who spent the day practically under the tables to make sure that all our patients recovered well.

One of our first special cases of the day was that of a male dog with severe eye trauma caused by a bite, which resulted in fractures of the eye socket and a tear of the eyelid. In addition to castration, we unfortunately had to remove the eye.

We were able to successfully treat the corneal necrosis of a female cat:
 

Also special; 6 dogs, were brought specially from Giurgiu, about 70 km away, for castration. Only here we have then noticed - one of them was already castrated.

This shows us that there is still a lot of educational work ahead of us. Like that of the sense of the ear tags. We always carry enough of them, but the benefits (unnecessary capture, the stress of anesthesia, medication, medical supplies, and of course the time another animal could have been treated) are not yet universally understood.

We also received a visit from a Rroma community with two dogs that we once neutered. We were greeted by people and animals like old acquaintances, which testifies to the good relationships we were able to build there and which allows us to continue our work.

In the evening we received a visit from a group of children who wanted to bring us their cat for deworming. We were able to convince them to castrate them as well. This gave us the opportunity to explain why they were helping their beloved playmate.

We also had many umbilical hernias, the usual ones in young dogs and cats where the umbilical area does not close right after birth - but also some pathological ones. We were able to correct them all.

A street dog from Frumusani challenged our volunteers quite a bit.
It took the team over 5 hours to catch the mama, who lives with her three puppies on a construction site (which worked out in the end thanks to a paste with tranquilizers).
We were able to spay her and release her back "home" with her puppies.

Of the 64 animals scheduled on the list, one of the dogs from Giurgiu was already neutered and so he was removed from the surgery list.

In total we were able to neuter 14 females & 5 males and 31 cats & 13 males.

That's 63 lives improved thanks to your donations through SUST in Frumusani.  
The campaign team on the ground thanks you by saying, "We are very proud to be part of this family and to be able to help thanks to your kind and continued support."
