Donkey and Horse Vital Signs, Health and Hoof


TROPHYLILYAGE6AND9CALENDARSHOTOCT2014

A donkey’s normal heartbeat or pulse rate is 35-55 per minute, depending on what it is doing, and its normal temperature is very close to a human’s at 35.8 to 37.5 deg C.  The table below, compiled by the Donkey Sanctuary, gives some of the variations.  A donkey seems to regulate temperature in much the same way as a human, too, as a donkey sweats for the same reasons that a human does.  A feverish donkey is therefore quite easy to detect.

Ways of scoring a donkey’s ‘body condition’ for general health have been devised, but as yet there is no general agreement as to the applicability of such a score.  Those who know donkeys can usually judge quite easily one which is in good condition, i.e. with coat shining, ears and eyes alert, movement easy, ribs and hip bones adequately covered with flesh, and no wounds.

There is another score for ‘wound and foot care’, but on the whole it does not offer more than good observation and common sense can provide.

What are the signs of a donkey being unwell ?

Among the signs of health trouble in a donkey are the following:

·           Fever (body sweat; muzzle hot and dry)

·           Loss of appetite

·           Drooping ears and maybe also a drooping head

·           Coat rough and dull looking

·           Dull eyes

·           Lack of energy and response

·           Frequently lying down

·           Liquid droppings (diarrhea, known as ‘scouring’)

·           Passing no droppings (constipation)

·           Wrong colours of droppings (i.e. signs of blood, although colour does vary a lot according to diet).

Donkeys on the whole do not show their feelings of pain in very obvious ways, but behave as a human would who is called ‘stoical’, i.e. tolerating pain without complaint.  They may make an initial violent movement of avoidance, but after that they become silent and as nearly as possible immobile in the face of pain and/or fear.  Therefore it is sometimes difficult to know when they are suffering acutely, and their behavior may look like ‘stubbornness’ rather than stoicism.  One indicator of pain or fear can be diarrhea, just as in humans.  Since this may also dehydrate the donkey, it will be adding to its problems if it persists.

1,000 Wild Horses in Holding Being Transferred by Alleged BLM Slaughter Dealers? — Straight from the Horse’s Heart


 

 

“Below is an interesting, local news article that might have otherwise slipped beneath national press radar if enlightened eyes had not been watching. Remember back in early 2013 when our own VP of Wild Horse Freedom Federation uncovered that BLM long term holding contractors, Spur Livestock, sold former wild horses to known kill buyers? click (HERE) and (HERE) Likewise, remember when I presented the documentation to the members of the BLM Wild Horse & Burro Advisory Board in Oklahoma City, the same year, complete with signed BLM documents and the agency swept the whole thing under the carpet with the Department of Justice refusing to take any action? click (HERE) Well guess what, the BLM and the slaughter boys from Spur Livestock are at it again and there is a whole bunch of smoke and mirrors surrounding the deal detailed below. Good luck at following the cast of characters as it reads like some sort of spy novel but I believe this little transaction might bear some looking into, what do you think?” ~ R.T.
