Video #1: Injured Fawn
Snowdon received a fawn that was hit by a car and left on the side of the road. He was in shock with a broken leg. Fortunately, we were given permission to try to save this fawn.
Upon the injured fawn’s arrival, Snowdon Manager Alyssa (a CVT) and our intern AnaVictoria jumped into action. The broken leg was obvious, but first, we dealt with his shock.
Over the course of the next few days, both veterinarians were involved in assisting in his care, prescribing meds, proper nutrition, and anesthetizing again in order to place a custom-made splint.
Our male fawn was soon transitioned to an outdoor stall; grazing, mobilizing, and getting used to his diet while listening to the sounds of his neighbor; the young female fawn. After two weeks and a couple of bandage changes, the two fawns in our care were introduced. Both fawns are close in age and they were able to be released together!
