Species: Harbour Seal
Patient ID: PV1902
Admitted on: 2019/02/18
Collection Site: Kitsilano
Reason for Admission: Eye injuries; underweight
Weight at Admission: ──
Patient Status: in care
Time in Care: 35 days (1 month, 5 days)

Patients that have already demonstrated that they can eat fish on their own are placed in a pool where they can learn how to compete with other animals. This is one of the smaller pools with a haul-out platform in the centre. It can only fit a few animals and is a good starting point for patients that have never been housed with another seal.
Jessica is responding well to treatment. She has a great appetite!
Jessica Seal is blind in the left eye and has limited sight on the right. She's also underweight (and very hungry!).
