Did you know that the nearest x-ray machine is 1.5 hours away? We often rescue wildlife with broken bones and internal injuries that are difficult to diagnose and treat without an x-ray. This means, taking the injured animal into Nicoya for an x-ray causing them stress and discomfort and costing us hundreds of dollars each month in radiography fees and transportation. With an x-ray machine, we will be able to quickly and correctly diagnose
wildlife that need immediate treatment and care without needing to transport them on bumpy, unpaved roads for 3 hours.
With the ability to sterilize our equipment, we an ensure a more sterile surgical environment. We perform several surgeries each week on injured wildlife and an autoclave would greatly improve the quality of care we are able to provide.
