WSU Vet hospital treats nine great horned owlets

by WSU CVM 26. April 2012 07:39

Rarely seen by the public, baby great horned owls are being treated at Washington State University’s Veterinary Teaching Hospital, and it’s hard to believe that the nine palm-sized puffballs with curious yellow eyes will grow into fierce raptors of the woods.

The young babies - five from one nest and four from another - are being hand-fed until they are strong enough to eat on their own. The first four were brought to WSU on April 13 at roughly one week old. Just four days later, the second group arrived at only a few days old.

"We’ve had great horned babies before, but in 10 years, I’ve never had any this young,” said veterinarian Nickol Finch, who oversees WSU’s Raptor Rehabilitation Center. "Pretty much all they’re doing is eating and sleeping.”
It’s rare for humans to get a glimpse of baby great horns. Their parents usually nest high up in trees and are aggressive protectors of their young. Considering the owls possess talons powerful enough to cart off animals five times their weight, most people are wise enough to keep their distance.

CE Webinar April 18 on Limb Salvage Techniques

by Admin 10. April 2012 15:11

Wednesday, April 18, 2012, 6 PM (Pacific Time) By Web Conference
Webinar by Dr William Dernell

Advanced and severe disease pathology affecting the extremities in small animals often brings the veterinary clinician to the point of considering limb amputation for either cure or palliation.  Because amputation is often a difficult decision for animal owners and because, in some cases, other circumstances result in amputation being contraindicated, knowledge of limb salvage options is important for therapy recommendations and decisions.  This presentation will discuss the indications for, applications of and potential complications of recent advances in limb salvage techniques for veterinary patients.  Although many practicing veterinarians may not perform these more advanced treatments directly, knowledge of their potential application and the important aspects of follow up care can greatly benefit their patients and clients. 

One hour, one CE Credit
