Mallard 15-0047 Undergoes Surgery For Wing Fracture

24 hours after surgery, Mallard 15-0047 is doing well. Hit by a car and then attacked by a colony of feral cats, he underwent surgery to pin a wing fracture. The external fixator is visible in the left wing. We will begin light physical therapy with him tomorrow and in 4- 6 weeks the pins will be removed.

Barring any unforeseen complications, we expect him to make a full recovery.

We could not assist the general public who find these animals in need of help or our patients without your financial support. Please consider sponsoring this duck’s care. Donations can be made here.
