Shanoe the Koala

Shanoe the koala in the ICU

Shanoe the koala on the road to recovery after being attacked by two dogs and suffering from a pulmonary haemorrhage.

Shanoe the koala was attacked by two dogs before he was rescued and rushed to the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital. Shanoe’s condition was deemed critical upon entry and he was immediately placed under anaesthetic to assess and treat his injuries. An endoscopic examination confirmed that Shanoe was suffering from a pulmonary haemorrhage and multiple punctures as a result of the attack.

After Dr Rosie was able to stabilise Shanoe’s bleeding he was admitted to the ICU to receive specialised around the clock care and treatment for his chest trauma and puncture wounds. Shanoe spent 4 weeks in the ICU and has recently progressed to our specialised koala rehabilitation ward where he will focus on regaining his strength and adjusting to solidarity as a wild koala. Soon Shanoe will be released back into the wild where he will relish at being given a second chance.

From September to March the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital faces its busiest time of the year which we often refer to as Trauma Season – with the weather heating up we see more wildlife on the move and coming face to face with life-threatening situations much like Shanoe’s.

Fact: The Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital is one of the busiest wildlife hospitals in the world. Since opening in 2004 we have treated over 100,000 patients and counting.
