2017 Patient of the Year Nominee
Harbor seal pup Rebel Princess was found alone on a beach at just a few days old. He was so young that he still had part of his umbilical cord attached when he was rescued. A pup this young should still be with his mother nursing and won't survive on his own in the wild.
After being admitted to our hospital, Rebel Princess was tube-fed a special milk formula four times a day for several weeks. Once his teeth grew in, our animal care experts began giving him whole fish and ensuring he had opportunities to learn how to compete with other seals for his meals.
After about two months of care, Rebel Princess was strong enough to survive on his own and was released back to the wild.
