Jonza

The end of last week saw several of us called into action to try and help a goat in Serbia.

His name is ‘Jonza / Jonzy’ and from the photos of him above and below, we are sure you will agree with us that he is a very handsome young lad !

He lives with Vesna and Slavica, and they contacted to ask if we can get some Vermiculite Homeopathic medicine for Jozna, as he has severe arthritis in his legs.  Vesna asked for this medicine specially as in the past and for many years, she worked in a homeopathic ambulance.  So Vesna knew exactly what would be good for Jozna and his leg problems, which we are informed are currently causing him lots of pain.

Vermiculite is not available as a homeopathic medicine in Serbia.

Jonza was rescued by Vesna and Slavica in 2007, and has been under their care ever since.

And so Friday morning (22/3) we jumped into action to try and help Jonza as quickly as we could. 

First of all contact (myself) was made with Ainsworth homeopathic specialist in Marleybone, London.  I thought that when I explained to the man on the phone that I needed medicine to help a goat in Serbia with leg problems, the man would think I was some kind of nut and put the phone down.  Instead, he was very helpful and listened to what I asked. He then said ‘yes, ok’ and asked me if I required tablets or liquid for Jonza.

In the end, with the help of Jean and Linda here in the UK, and also by going back to Vesna and Slavica to get exact requirements, an order was made on 22/3.  Today, 25/3, Linda has informed me that she now has the medicine (sent in the post by Ainsworth’s) and that tonight it will be packaged up ready for shipment to Serbia tomorrow (26th).  Packages normally take about one week to arrive, so we are very hopeful that by the middle of next week, Jonza will have started his new medication, and more importantly, we see an improvement in his leg condition.

We will try and give more updates on Jonza as time moves on, but for now enjoy the pictures that we have from Vesna showing Jonza.

Get well very soon Jonza !! – from all the crew.

Regards –  Mark – SAV London.
