It's always important for a Beaver to remain well groomed! This little one was admitted several days ago along with its 2 siblings. They were found alone and crying in a ditch. Someone had also illegally dumped motor oil resulting in them becoming covered in it.
Thankfully after some Dawn dish soap baths and a course of antibiotics they are doing much better. Today they were able to enjoy their fist swim!
