We had received a phone call about a wild Bengal Slow Loris that had been found seeking shelter in a building. After a medical examination, our team discovered inflammation in Mike's eyes this might due to Insects bites.
Over the last week Dr. Claudia Hartley, the Head of Ophthalmology at the Bristol Veterinary School has been working with the WFFT Vet Team. Claudia is specialist in Veterinary Ophthalmology and has kindly shared some of her exceptional knowledge and experience with our team. We have been examining the eyes of numerous animals here of the WFFT Wildlife Rescue Centre including gibbons, macaques, bears, dogs and elephants. Some surgical procedures were performed and lots of great advice has been given on the future treatment of the eyes of some of our very special residents. Thank you Claudia for giving us your time and being a pleasure to work with.
