Two Tigers Sedated for Surgery

Jennifer compliments Cynthia on her hat while everyone is arriving for the two dental surgeries for Andre and Cookie the tigers.

Dr Wynn arranged for Dr Peak to do the dental work and for Dr Miller to examine Rufus, Calvin and Narla’s eyes.

I didn’t get pictures, but Dr. Tammy Miller, our eye expert, examined Rufus and concurred that his eyes are fine but he can’t see.  She thinks it is from brain swelling and made recommendations for treatment.  She stayed and helped with Andre the tiger.
