Cutie Rana Bug is doing well- her lovely self as usual. We had a veterinary ophthalmologist here and performed pinpoint cryosurgery on the papilloma on her eyelid. This method protects her eye since the instrument stops dispensing the liquid nitrogen if pressure is released. So if Rana moves, it shuts off.
True to her cooperative nature, she was great for everything. We are definitely seeing a positive response, but healing will be slow. She will most likely have it for months, but there is a possibility it won’t completely resolve. We will probably have to do another treatment in a few weeks, but we will wait and see.
Outside of once a day cleaning and topical treatment, her little growth certainly doesn’t slow her down. She has been journeying around the habitat, choosing where to go and how much time she spends with Maia and Guida. This week it has been a fair bit, including walking past dinner to go hang out with Guida instead. Each day is different and that’s part of the wonder of sanctuary.
