With so many wild animals needing our care this time of year, that’s a lot of animal rescues, veterinary treatment and rehabilitation that is going on right now behind the scenes at the RSPCA. You can help support our wildlife team to help save more lives.
Gibb is one recent koala that is very lucky to have survived crossing the road in Logan.
Suffering head injuries after being hit by a car in Buccan earlier this month, Gibb was brought into our RSPCA Wildlife Hospital for emergency care.
Wildlife Veterinarian, Dr Tim Portas, treated Gibb for head injuries and also performed surgery for a severe tongue laceration he sustained from the impact.
It was beautiful to see Gibb the next day post-surgery, really going to town on some fresh gum leaves in the Wildlife Hospital. Despite his recent surgery, he wasn’t letting it get in the way of his appetite!
