Figgy Pudding's Story

Cold Stunned & Pneumonia

This patient named Figgy Pudding was admitted for rehabilitation on December 18th, 2022. Figgy pudding became cold stunned off the northeastern coast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, and developed pneumonia. After a thorough veterinary examination, Figgy will begin a specially curated treatment plan consisting of vitamins, fluid therapy, antibiotics, and daily nebulizing treatments to aid in their recovery. Thanks to collaborative efforts with the New England Aquarium and Turtles Fly Too, our sea turtle rehabilitation staff is happy to accommodate and care for endangered sea turtles in need from all over the country!
