It’s about a month since I told you about Cassandra’s brush with death. She continues to surprise us and is doing really well. Her illness and issues are a mystery. Even after repeated testing I fear we may never know what the initial problem was. I guess this is a good problem to have: that she appears to be fine now.
We took her in last week to for repeat ultrasound and radiographs (x-rays). Everything looked good. Below are some photos of her x-ray photos.
These film are pretty normal looking. We were thrilled that there was no build up of fluid in her chest over the past month. The cool thing to me (seeing as I am not a veterinarian and cannot speak to the detail of the image) is the collar. Our lemurs wear a tracking collar so if they were to ever get out of the exhibit we could track them and find them and get them back.
We continue to pay extra close attention to her. Please keep the positive vibes coming!
