This is Tilly and she is a beautiful Laughing Kookaburra from Tallebudgera.
This poor girl was admitted to Currumbin Wildlife Hospital following a presumed vehicle hit, and has been recuperating in the Wildlife Hospital for the past two weeks.
When Tilly was first admitted she was in a critical condition and we were unsure if she would survive her injuries. Following examination from the veterinarian and x-rays it was revealed that Tilly had a tibia fracture and a clavicle fracture.
Due to the critical nature of Tilly’s condition she was required to have an intravenous catheter and she was treated with anti-inflammatory medication and pain relief. Tilly also underwent a procedure to pin her fractured tibia and is recovering nicely.
This beautiful girl is going to require a few more weeks of rehabilitation, but will be back home in the wild with her friends soon, thanks to the dedicated team at Currumbin Wildlife Hospital.
