Remember months ago, DOGUY , one ofour young males, had his right eye removed. A Spanish vet, Dr IDOIAGA Ainare, came for the surgery that was completely sponsored by PRO WILDLIFE and by some PASA donors.
When removing the eye, Dr Ainare noticed the other eye was sick too and insisted upon having different tests to check the evolution of the disease on the remaining eye. It took some time to find the appropriate equipment and person to carry out these very particular tests. Finally, a Congolese Doctor decided to help – the results of the tests were not positive: Doguy had uveitis and a growing cataract!
Since the results came out, DOGUY has had all the necessary treatment and has been closely followed by both Dr Ainare and the Congolese Doctor. The young chimpanzee is still under medication today and will be sedated again in the coming days to check the progress of his eye.
Many, many thanks to our two devoted Doctors! We keep our fingers crossed DOGUY’s left eye in on the mend!
