On May 10, Dr. Karra and LVT Jess brought Buddy into the hospital for another recheck of Buddy’s injured beak. Dr. Karra was pleased to find that the damaged beak continues to heal well and that the wound is almost completely granulated over the bone. Another layer of bone cement was reapplied to protect the beak since there were still some small exposed areas. Another recheck will be performed in 15-20 days, and likely no more bone cement will be needed at that point.
