Patient Updates

Roe Paul was released after 151 days in our care.

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

Roe is in our "eye kids" pool right now, a pool full of pups with eye issues that require eye drops. She's looking pretty good, though, and she seems to enjoy the bigger pool a lot.

Roe has had some trouble competing for food in the bigger Harbour pool, so staff moved her into a smaller pool to give her another chance to figure it out...

Roe was admitted with numerous little wounds and swelling of the cornea (the eye's clear, protective outer layer). She is being treated with antibiotics and has already gained a little weight.
