Our trusty volunteers and vet externs recently had the opportunity to lend a helping hand to our vet during a health check on our resident male lion, Simba. Simba was anaesthetised and underwent a routine assessment of his body condition including a weight check. A blood sample was also taken from him, in order to determine the effect that recent changes in medication are having on his body. As with any ageing animal, it’s important to perform regular health checks, and volunteers and staff will continue to observe and monitor our handsome Simba on a daily basis.
