£120 could pay for a months worth of animal welfare supplements
The Island Project regularly worms its animals to complement high-quality health. Wormers help keep internal parasites at bay, but this supplement can end up costing a staggering £20 per animal. Below you can see a student delousing Bab the chicken’s wings.
Wound spray is another supplement that is used regularly at the farm. It is used to help heal small cuts and scratches that the animals get from time to time. Wound spray is an antiseptic fluid, usually in a small 50-100ml bottle. Each bottle is able to treat one or two animals depending on the injury.
Neno the Llama
In November 2019, Neno the Llama became very dehydrated from vomiting after eating his food too quickly. This caused the Llama to choke and cause inflammation to his neck. Neno’s tongue was very swollen as a result of not drinking and because Neno was too afraid to eat he was becoming very weak. Neno suffered a very sore throat and neck, which required a course of painkillers and tender loving care from young people. After some diligent work from staff and young people, Neno made a full recovery.
