Surgery Complete to Repair Rescued Bobcat’s Leg.

From Wildlife Center
November 29, 2012

Dr. Dana transported Bobcat #12-2591 to the Virginia Veterinary Specialists this morning for the bobcat’s 11:30 a.m. surgery with Dr. Wheeler.  Dr. Dana reported that the bobcat was sedated and in the operating room at noon — and at that point, Dr. Dana was about to scrub in to the surgery.  At 2:30 p.m., Dr. Dana reported that the bobcat was waking up — and that surgery had gone well.  Once the bobcat was fully recovered at 3:30 p.m., Dr. Dana and bobcat drove back to the Center.

The bobcat will be housed in a small, sturdy enclosure in the Center’s holding room for the next few days.  The bobcat will need restricted movement after his significant surgery.

Amazing photos of all the metal work that had to be done and it is going to be expensive….
