Can you guess what may have caused this Eagle’s injuries? The same type of wound is present on the top of his skull, over his right hock, inside his left leg and throughout the length of his left leg. The answer will be revealed at the end of the day.
He is stable and doing well. We started him on antibiotics, an anti-inflammatory, pain meds and rehydrated him. We opted to send him to a different facility than we have sent Eagles previously and will be working closely with their veterinary team should this Eagle qualify for a procedure utilizing Vetrix. We have supplied the team with one sheet of the cellular matrix and may be reaching out to you, our Facebook followers, for financial support should we need additional sheets to get this big guy better. Thank you Dr. Poutous and his rehab team at Sacred Friend – Wildlife Rehabilitation in Norfolk for working with us and giving this guy a shot.
