Daily Meds for Pups

We confirmed at our last Pup check that the pups have Coccidia. It’s a parasite that we found after looking at feces under a microscope (we do what’s called a Fecal Float). The current de-wormer that the pups get every couple weeks does not treat Coccidia. So… we’ve got 10-21 days of daily medicine just for the pups (the parents’ fecal was negative and not surprising since they have likely built up resistance over time).      Read more

Just about weaned

Ranger Greg posted some great pictures of the pups nursing. The pups will be nine weeks old the end of the week so that pretty much means no more nursing as pups are typically weaned at 7-9 weeks of age. Enjoy the video that Ranger Sarah caught of the pups nursing.Read more

One Month Old

Click here and here to take a look. Ranger Andrew got this quick video of the pups out of the den.  More videos and news coming… or better yet, come see for yourself.      Read more

No More Pup Prep– They’re Here!

Well, the second half of April is here and I got a call from Autumn early Saturday morning that pups were here! What great news to start the weekend!  Three pups were spotted on the den camera. Unsure if more were to come, we made plans to keep the exhibit area quiet all day, and check on the pupsRead more

Pupdate #19… long overdue

A long but successful day is winding down and it ends with a Pupdate. If you recall in Pupdate #18, the pups are no longer pups and catching them is a whole new world.  A couple of weeks ago when we went to catch them for their final Pup check, we couldn’t. Yes, failure, at least temporarily. We decided to call it a day and make new plans for a different day with more bodies. Our wolf exhibit is excellentRead more
