Although the WCC aims to have a state of the art veterinary facility someday in the future, we currently depend on the generosity of our amazing pack of veterinarians who not only volunteer their time, but also their tools, to ensure that the WCC's 25 wolves receive the best care. Dr Charlie Duffy VMD of Norwalk Veterinary Hospital and Miller & Associates' Equine Doctor, Elizabeth Kilgallon DVM, were on board to help us diagnose the cause of M740's weight loss. Dr Duffy has been been the WCC's lead veterinarian for almost a decade, but most practices aren't equipped with portable Elkin digital x-ray machines. Thankfully, the WCC is situated within an equestrian community and it's beneficial for equine veterinarians to be able to bring the tools of their practices to their clients. As Dr Kilgallon began taking x-rays of M740, she mentioned that she's not accustomed to filming and analyzing wolves! Together, the two generous doctors, WCC curator Rebecca Bose, and the rest of our team kept the frightened lobo comfortable while confirming that his insides looked perfectly healthy! At morning's end, we returned M740 to his familiar turf. We'll keep an eye on his weight in the coming weeks but are feeling hopeful that he'll have his figure back in time for breeding season. Big howls of gratitude to Dr Kilgallon DVM and Dr Duffy VMD for providing M740 with paramount care!
