Winston on the road to recovery after losing his mum and undergoing treatment for a gut infection.

Winston the red-necked wallaby had a rough start to life after he and his Mum were hit by a car. Sadly, Winston’s Mum didn’t survive, miraculously Winston sustained no injuries and was taken in by a dedicated wildlife carer. Subsequently Winston was admitted to the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital with a gut infection that caused complications leading to severe dehydration.

Winston spent a lengthy 17 days in the Nursery ICU receiving fluids, anti-inflammatories and pain relief to aid recovery. Thanks to around the clock care from our dedicated team of vets and nurses, Winston returned back into the hands of his specialised wildlife carer where he is thriving, and will receive all the love and care he needs before he is ready to be released into the wild.

The Australia Zoo Wildlife operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, treating sick, injured and orphaned native wildlife. Equipped with a surgical theatre, x-ray room, intensive care units and a pathology lab, the dedicated group of wildlife veterinarians and nurses are able to provide specialised treatment and care to wildlife. Whether it's a kangaroo hit by a car, a koala joey that has lost its mum or a sea turtle that has ingested plastic, the highly experienced team goes above and beyond to treat each patient, hoping that they can return back to the wild upon making a full recovery.

Fact: The Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital has treated over 5000 macropods since opening its doors in 2004, across 17 different macropod species.
