Patient Updates

Spotted Hyena was released after 57 days in our care.

You can see the list of all animals released at this release in the release record.

Spotted Hyena has grown so much over the last month, we barely recognized him! He's now in a big pool with some "friends".

Very curious pup! He's very aware of what's happening around his tub.

Spotted Hyena is a new patient. His initial exam and bloodwork were unremarkable, and he is so far progressing normally, is very alert and seems quite curious.
