2021 Patient of the Year Nominee

California sea lion Katz was discovered on the beach not behaving like a healthy young sea lion should. Fortunately, a kindhearted beachgoer called our 24-hour hotline, and a team of expert responders was dispatched to Katz’s location.

After carefully assessing the scene, our responders determined that Katz was in dire need of medical care and rescued her. After arriving at our hospital, Katz began experiencing tremors and displaying other signs that concerned our veterinarians. She was also malnourished and suffering from pneumonia.

Katz was prescribed with a treatment regimen unique to her needs, which included plenty of nutritious fish meals and medications.

In no time, Katz began to heal and regain the feisty demeanor typical for a wild sea lion like her.

After nearly seven weeks of care, Katz was released back to the wild alongside other rehabilitated marine mammals.
