Asian Short Clawed Otter, Khan, needed to be seen by Sergio Silvetti Cert A (ZM) MRCVS DVM at Manor Vets Exotics, Edgbaston as she developed a lump on her head.
Our Manor Vets Exotics team began further investigations by x-rays, a dental examination and also a lance/flush procedure revealed an abscess. Manor Vets Nurse (SVN) Faye Saunders successfully took some blood for tests and monitored the anaesthetic throughout the procedures.
Khan had a smooth GA and recovery, she had some lovely, fresh fish to eat before going back to WILD Zoological Park
We are fortunate at Manor Vets to have an amazing team of committed, talented and enthusuastic staff.
