Special visitor - a Peregrine Falcon!

May 15, 2014

PenBay Veterinary Associates was host to a very special guest on Thursday. Marc Payne from Avian Haven brought us an injured Peregrine Falcon to have an exam, x-rays, and a nasal flush. The raptor is suspected to have been injured in telephone wires and is currently being treated at Avian Haven in Freedom, ME. Dr. Kate Pierce was able to x-ray his beak and nasal bones as well as flush his nasal passages. We took samples to send to an outside lab for further analysis. We hope this beautiful bird will make a full recovery! Although we love our cat and dog patients, it’s a great experience to be able to work with outside facilities and help such a cool creature!
