Rodenticide Poisoning Recovery

Many of you probably remember the story that we shared recently about a Red Tailed Hawk that died from Rodenticide poisoning. It is unfortunately a common issue for us at New England Wildlife Center, with some hawks surviving and some not. Whether we can successfully treat the poison or not is impacted by numerous factors, including how quickly the animal comes to us after exposure and how much poison was ingested. Today I wanted to share some happy news, which is that we are currently successfully treating two poisoned Red Tailed Hawks at NEWC, one of which you can see here receiving subcutaneous fluids. Both hawks are stable, eating well, and are on track to make full recoveries.

Teddy Bear Hamster

This is a Teddy Bear hamster that came in for a check-up recently to Odd Pet Vet. The ancestors of today’s pet hamsters originated in Asia, mostly in areas around Syria, Russia, and Mongolia. They love to hoard food, keeping it generally both in underground storage chambers and in their own large cheek pouches. A full cheek pouch can as much as triple a hamster’s head in size!
