This is nasty reading for people, BUT, if you think "donkey", and replace doughnuts, fried chicken, and burgers, with, alfalfa, sweet feed, grains, and WAY TOO MANY treats, you have a good idea of the correlation between fatty liver disease for people and donkeys. The difference.................people can make choices, donkeys eat what they are fed. People need to be good caretakers of their animals, be it dogs, cats, donkeys, horses, doesn't matter. Don't kill them with kindness, no matter how sad and hungry those big eyes look......!!!
