Monte the Mountain Lion to Need Treatment! VIDEO!

Offbeat  (tags: animals, environment, protection, mountain lion )

- 1834 days ago -
Monte has been at the Micke Grove Zoo for 13 years and is quite a charmer, but don't let it fool you. He is very much a wild animal, a predator also known as a puma or cougar.

The written part says renal failure is the liver, when it's actually kidney failure. Although, since all organs are interrelated it probably affects the liver, but it's not liver failure.

Good pick-up Roseann!! This is going to be a daunting task. Dietary management and medications will be easy enough, but he's going to need frequent bloodwork to monitor his condition and THAT'S going to be tricky.
My very best wishes to you, big kitty!

Hope Monte gets better. I cringe when I see the name Fish and Wildlife department as these people are hunters and don't care about the wellfare of animals.

What a beautiful creature! I hope something can be done for him for whatever he's got. Renal failure and the liver are not one diagnosis, so which is it?

What a beautiful baby - I hope he will feel better.

"Monte has renal failure, meaning his liver is giving out."

Wrong. Renal failure means his kidneys are failing, not his liver.
