There are many heroes willing to do anything – even risk their lives – to find animals, but when help is needed, whether wild animals or pets are in trouble, we all rely on the real heroes, the vets.
Genuine and passionate animal lovers, these guardian angels provide comfort. Dr Cliff Redford, a veterinarian at Wellington Veterinary Hospital in Ontario, Canada, is one such wonderful man. A man whose love for wildlife is immeasurable!
Dr. Cliff is also keeping in touch with fans thanks to social media. Recently, the dedicated doctor shared with the world his efforts to help a majestic bald eagle recover from some serious injuries. Severely wo.u.nded by some duck hunters, the iconic bird looked really bad when it arrived at Dr. Redford’s clinic. Needless to say, if it weren’t for him, the poor bird would never have been made it.
After an early examination, Dr. Redford noticed the worst he had initially thought for the bald eagle. With the left-wing bone broken, its chances of flying back were extremely slim. But not under Dr. Redford’s watch. His main concern, though, is not bones but muscles.
After several hours of surgery, the eagle, named Wolf by the team of veterinarians, is on a difficult road to recovery. It’s a pretty long road, if nearly impassable, but with such a dedicated vet and a fighting animal, the cab only goes in one direction.
For more than six weeks, Wolf was taken to a rehabilitation facility. People here were full of hope, but they said it all depended on the bird and its determination. Although the initial results looked something good, no one gave up. Everyone was determined to help this bird fly again. And in the end, they succeeded!
