|Update 4th November 2005|
Magnus who has been suffering with bad eyes over the last few weeks is now a lot better, this has been helped with antibiotics and the salt water, they are now healing.
Both Bamboo and Thai will be wormed and given their flea treatment this week. They are also having a visit from our Animal Care Team Changing room people, who are making improvements to the enclosure, including the cleaning out of their pond. Thai is going back to basic's with training, as she is still hanging off the Animal Care Team's trousers.
Bracken, Tuppence and Muffin, our ponies, have their winter coats now, and are happy to be back in the big field with lots of grass.
Spike our latest pup arrived on Sunday (30th of October 2005) from Penberth Cove near Porthcurno. He was a very fat pup at 23.5 kg, but had fishing line around his neck, this was removed and sprayed with an antibiotic. He only spent 3 days in isolation and after getting back his blood test, which was clear, he was moved in to the main hospital.
Spike has had high temperature for a few days, so the team have decided to change his antibiotics. His temperature is now coming down and he is feeding well. Spike has also been wormed. To read more about the rescue of Spike, Dan Jarvis from the BDMLR has very kindly provided a report on the rescue, click here to read it.
