Patient Updates

Bourne died on 2020/06/20 after 4 days in our care.

"Bourne did not make it through the night. He deteriorated quickly in the afternoon, and despite our veterinary team's best efforts into the night to save his life, he did not recover."

Bourne is in critical condition after he began to deteriorate this afternoon. Our veterinary staff is working hard to save his life.

Bourne has been moved from the hospital into the comfort aisle of the quarantine area. This will help him stay cool as the days get warmer. Over night and while the sun isn't warming the tent, a heat lamp keeps him cozy.
