Patient Updates

Woz was released after 70 days in our care.

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

Woz has been moved to a pre release pool and is gaining weight steadily.

Woz just finished weaning and is now in fish school. Wish him luck!

Woz came to us quite underweight but has been started on fluids and formula to keep him hydrated and help him gain weight. He may be small but he’s got a big attitude!
