Proper Medical Care for Wildlife
The WRSOS works with volunteer target veterinary clinics throughout the province to provide proper medical for injured and ill wildlife. The WRSOS also works with our network of volunteers to help injured and orphaned wildlife be rescued and transported to vet clinics or rehabilitators.
Each animal that is injured or appears ill is examined and diagnosed by a veterinarian. A plan for treatment is made for each case, provided by the veterinarian or the wildlife rehabilitator. Treatments may include:
- Surgery for broken bones, cut and bullet wounds
- Medication for infection, diarrhea or parasites
- Feeding schedules for orphans and those suffering from malnutrition
- Bandaging and physiotherapy
