Bald Eagle #17-2705 update

Bald Eagle #17-2705 finished his course of chelation therapy last week; results from a re-check lead analysis were “low”, indicating that the first course of treatment worked. The eagle has been gradually getting brighter, though the staff have had to intermittently hand- and tube-feed the eagle to ensure he’s receiving adequate nutrition. 

The veterinary team noted an abscess developing on the eagle’s fractured wing; on December 9, the eagle was taken to surgery to lance and drain the abscess. Radiographs taken that same day indicate that the eagle’s fractured ulna is healing.

Bobcat #17-2688 update

Bobcat #17-2688 continues to eat her “rat slurries” every day; the rehab staff divides her food into two meals each day so that they can slip medications into the food. The cat appears to be bright and alert, and the veterinarians are no longer able to visualize the laceration on the bobcat’s back.

The veterinary team will repeat radiographs of the bobcat’s jaw in January.

Bobcat #17-2495 update

Bobcat #17-2495 is doing well in the Center’s Large Mammal Isolation enclosure. Critter Cam viewers have enjoyed keeping an eye out for her on camera; with the full run of the enclosure, the cat isn’t always in view, but she does enjoy napping in the sunshine throughout the day, which is plentiful in the enclosure where the cam is located.

Bald Eagle #17-1993 update

The rehabilitation and veterinary staff have continued to exercise and observe Bald Eagle #17-1993 during the past few weeks. Unfortunately, the eagle is unable to maintain height and stamina while flying. Dr. Ernesto completed a full cardiac evaluation and found that the eagle has two severe arrhythmias and a heart murmur. It’s highly probable that the heart issue is due to lead toxicity – Dr. Ernesto has research experience with the permanent cardiac damage that lead can cause.
