Fox Squirrel

The Wildlife Medical Clinic accepts injured animals 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. To make this possible, all of the clinic volunteers share the responsibility of being on-call. Once we admit an animal, the team on-call does a thorough physical exam and any immediately necessary treatments for the incoming patient. Sometimes, in order to do a complete physical exam, we need to anesthetize the animal. Wild animals are usually not very cooperative and can become dangerously stressed during them exam. Yesterday, the on-call team did a physical exam on this adult Fox Squirrel under anesthesia.
