Big Cat Updates

Alpha, the baby bobcat is doing well.  Picky cats ate well.   23-yr-old Frosty Serval is in the hospital for observation.   As soon as he was brought inside he got excited about eating.  Natalia Leopard has come up lame.  She is in a new enclosure and has a high platform which she loves.  We think she may have misjudged a jump.  She is on pain meds and we are watching her closely to see if she just needs to rest it or if the vets need to x-ray it.

Baby Bobcat Has Surgery 9/12/2018

Bobcat Rehab Update from 9/12/2018

Alpha was finally strong enough to have her jaw checked out.

Alpha went to the Humane Society yesterday. She had a broken jaw. It looked like it had been broken for a long time. One side was sharp and broken looking. The other side was smooth and calcified over.

Dr. Justin had to file the smooth edge down and he wired the jaw back together. She will be re-examined in 2 weeks. It will take 6 weeks to heal. There is no telling if the jaw will heal properly. There may also be additional fractures higher up in the hinge joint of her jaw.

Because her jaw had been broken the muscles and tendons that work the jaw have also shrunk somewhat and she cannot open her mouth fully like in a yawn. This should resolve itself over time as she starts to use her mouth properly again.

She will need to be on soft food for 6 weeks.

We also opted to not put an ecollar on her because of the risk of getting mush stuck in it and getting into her surgery incision. Please keep an eye on the site and let the vets know if she is pawing at it and irritating it.

Baby Bobcat Alpha’s X-Ray – It’s a bad fracture, it’s old and the pieces do not line up.
