Emergency rescue: severely injured tamandua

Belize Wildlife & Referral Clinic:
Fingers crossed for this severely injured tamandua with a fractured hand and a septic joint, likely caused by a small carnivore attack a couple weeks ago. And what a treat to have received a donation of a new (used) and working pulse oximeter right in time today, BIG thanks to our kind clinical rotation intern Doug! It came in perfectly handy today and our Drs. were as excited as kids for christmas to have this wonderful addition to our anesthesia monitoring equipment (in addition to our eyes, ears and fingers...)

Caves Branch:
Thanks to the efforts of many people this tamandua is in our care now. She was passed by a farmer who found her in the corn field, and realized that she was sick,, he brought her to the sugar farm office and they caleld Belize Bird rescue, who called us right away. We rushed to the Wildlife clinic. The animal is in very serious condition and the prognosis is unclear. But she is trying very hard to survive. I cannot even post the pictures of her injured paws- they are soo badly infected from the bites of another animal( 2-3 weeks ago). We come for the follow-up visit to the Wildlife clinic every day, meds, painkillers and 24 hours attention that is all we can do- the rest is up to the "little fighter." She eats every 2 hours at night and it gives us hope. Keeping fingers crossed. Thank you, Wildlife clinic- enormous amount of time is spend on her care every day!
