Follow-up care

Since 2001, the identification card is accompanied by an aftercare document published by the National Stud farms.
For the old identification card, you have to ask your veterinary surgeon for the form or the National Stud farm of your district.

There is two possibilities for the seller :

1st solution : the animal is not destined to be slaughtered (part II of the document)

2nd solution : the animal can be destined to be slaughtered (part III of the document)

If the seller has completed the first solution and asked his/her veterinary surgeon to sign the aftercare document, this solution is irreversible, i.e. you can be sure this donkey will never be destinated to be eaten, even if ownership changes several times.

If the seller has chosen the 2nd solution, the donkey can be destined to be slaughtered (If the animal has never had medicine which contains any components prohibited in meat which is to be consumed).

If you buy a donkey whose owner had chosen the 2nd solution (can be destined to be slaughted), you have the possibility, if you want it, to reconsider this choice. You just need to fill part III of the document "is not destined to be slaughtered" and to validated it by your veterinary surgeon.

The back of this aftercare form is for the veterinary surgeon who will have to mention the different treatments given to your animal in the event of the 2nd solution.

In the Asinerie du Bocage, it is always the 1st solution which is choosen:
"is not destined to be slaughtered".

I am a breeder of the Cotentin donkey, and I have always thought this animal was too close to the human to admit that one day a donkey whom I raised and cuddled could finish at the slaughter-house!!
