Update on the Aptera colony

[hgallery3 id=”172,173″ render=”dir_table”]

Hair/skin samples sent for analysis showed mites causing mange

Injected the colony twice with Ivermectin to treat mange/ear mites

Purchased environmental pesticide so the rooms & barn they live in which where infested with parasites could be fumigated
Treated approx. 35 with Frontline spot on (those we could catch!) over 2 months for those suffering flea allergy
15 sent for Veterinary treatment & neutered funded by Arche Noah, our thanks to them
Three sent for veterinary care to our very supportive Greek vet with serious eye/skin infections which are now healed
Provide food every month to assist their Greek carer to feed them & vitamin supplements added to their water
They now look & must feel so much better with no pregnant ones so far a few entire males left to catch & neuter
The threat of poisoning seems to have been withdrawn since our assistance managing this colony

Our last goal is to treat them all for internal parasites particularly (tapeworm in particular) but with the rescue kittens/cats we are taking in this year we cannot find the funds to buy such huge quantities (Profender/Drontal or Stronghold) can anyone help in providing any?
If so please donate via the donate button or contact us.

Many thanks to those of you who have donated so far enabling us to treat & protect this colony
