Dr. Rich, the Center’s veterinary fellow, took an additional set of radiographs of Bald Eagle #13-0174 on March 12. Dr. Rich reports that it appears as though all metal has moved through the eagle’s system in the past few days. The eagle remains bright and alert.
An additional lead test was performed this morning; the results were 0.178 ppm, indicating that chelation therapy was effective. The eagle will be moved to flight pen A3 after the afternoon treatments today.
