Project Report | Oct 22, 2018
You helped us pay for medical care of our animals!

By Riana Van Nieuwenhuizen | Project Owner and Founder

Nikita was sedated due to her not feeling well

Thanks to your donations, we were able to give certain animals some much needed medical care!

On the 26th of May, our Canadian wolf Nikita didn't seem to be doing very well. She was sedated by Dr. Sandra Bertram and X-rays showed severe pneumonia and fluid in her lungs. She was on medication for a while and received around the clock care. However, she was very sick. Thanks to the good care of Dr. Bertram, Nikita managed to pull through and she is now back to her old self. 

Our older cheetah boys James and Mafusa were also sedated to do some check-ups. Mafusa has a bad hip due to an injury when he was younger, but all looks very good. As for James, his blood results couldn't have been better so he's also doing really well.

Our stories unfortunately don't always have a happy ending. We would like to tell you about a steenbok that was brought in on the 1st of October. She seemed to have been hit by a car and couldn't stand up. When we sedated her, it turned out she was severly hurt but also pregnant. Not long after, she went into labour and her baby, whom we named Hope, was born. Unfortunately, his mum was too badly hurt to save and had to be euthanised. Baby Hope was premature but seemed to be doing really well. After 10 days of doing everything we possibly could for him, he started to struggle and unfortunately passed away. He was a little fighter though and will never be forgotten.

However, all of this wouldn't have been possible without your help! Cheetah Experience would like to thank you all very much for your donations. Without your help, our project simply wouldn't exist and we wouldn't be able to take care of our animals like we do. Thank you so much for allowing us to put our animals first, always!
