Patient Updates

Skate Hudson was released after 76 days in our care.

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

All round and healthy, that's Skate in her big pre-release pool. She looks good and is well on track for a successful release in the weeks to come!

Skate looks great in her big pool where she's figuring out how to compete with other pups for fish. She's put on quite a bit of weight already, so this seems to be working!

Skate had a minor procedure a few days ago, but seems to be recovering well. She is still being fed a milk formula 5 times a day.
