Faith, our 6 year old cheetah female, broke her toe while roaming her enclosure. Fortunately, we were planning to bring her up to the University of Pretoria to get some tests done to check her for gastritis as she has had recent digestive issues. We loaded Faith in the car and took her all the way to Pretoria, where she had a biopsy and a CT scan. Her toe was also stitched up while she was under.
Faith's test results were very positive and showed that Faith is in great condition. Her toe took a while to heal, but she had babysitters around the clock to look after her and make sure she wasn't using her foot too much, giving it some time to heal.
As you all know, medical procedures are very expensive. Thanks to your donations, we were able to get Faith fully checked out and have her toe fixed. Once again, we would like to emphasise how much your support means to us, because without you, we wouldn't be able to look after our animals. So on behalf of Cheetah Experience, we would like to thank you very much for believing in us!
