It's a girl!

May, 9th 2024

The second seal pup patient of 2024 has arrived at ASLC! This little girl is also premature, as suggested by her fluffy white lanugo coat. Her prognosis is guarded, but staff are hopeful that she is developed enough to survive.

Due to her being born prematurely, the pup has been experiencing jaundice. She has been responding to her treatments well! However, she has since been struggling with low blood sugar, which can be life threatening and requires emergency medical treatment. She is now being fed around the clock with the hopes of stabilizing her blood sugar levels.

The seal pup has been growing stronger. She no longer needs overnight feedings to maintain her blood sugar levels, and she moved outside this week!
