Stix

Stranded 01-08-17

 

stixStix was one of our 191 cold stunned sea turtles. Stix is a 14 lb. Atlantic green juvenile. Stix's right front flipper was entangled in fishing line. Stix is receiving cold laser treatment on his flipper and was started on fluids and antibiotics. He is currently not eating well. Stix will remain in ICU until diagnostics are complete. When strong enough, he will need surgery for FP.

January 31, Update: Stix is eating on his own!

February Update: Stix had all noticeable tumors removed on 2-9. He was started on antibiotics after surgery. Stix is still receiving iron injections and cold laser treatment to help heal his right front flipper.
