Reason for Stranding


Patient History

– Re-stranded at mile marker 5

Sponsored by: Good Catch Foods

Patient Injuries

No issues when she restranded.

Patient Treatments

Planning on taking her in for a CT scan in the upcoming weeks to see if something is going on internally that we just can’t see on x-rays that will point us in some direction as to why she re-stranded. She has been eating great. Update 12/26/21 Cowgirl: eating well, rests on the bottom well, she is a bit of a puzzler as to why she restranded. Cowgirl and Tumble are sharing tank 2. They have shown some competition towards each other but nothing too concerning. I will keep an eye on them and if it gets severe we will separate them.
