Ukee died on 2018/10/25 after 13 days in our care.
"Sadly, we have to share the news of Ukee's passing today. After almost two weeks of critical care, our veterinary team decided to humanely euthanize the animal when it became clear that he could not be restored to full health despite the rescue centre team's best efforts. “He wasn’t responding to treatment, and his condition had taken a significant downturn in the last two days,” said Dr. Martin Haulena, head veterinarian at the Vancouver Aquarium. “At this point we had to evaluate his quality of life. Although we are disappointed we couldn’t return him to full health, we are glad we could end his suffering and make his final days more comfortable. I am so proud of the team for the incredible care they gave him.”"
