Lily’s energy level has increased significantly over the last few weeks. Our team has been busy offering her a variety of enrichment and foraging activities! 

In addition to having lots of energy, we’re happy to report that Lily is eating well. Currently, her diet includes about six pounds of herring a day!

Our Animal Health team will be doing radiograph scans on Lily this week to determine whether or not her jaw injury requires surgery. 

Stay tuned for more updates!
