Lucas is responding well to the Deramax pain killer. He is most active later in the day, and most stiff when staff arrive in the morning. Staff have been taking the time to walk him around the enclosure to work on muscle tone, but are cautious to not over stress him. As today's photos show, he still has an alert look, with clear eyes. Monitoring pain in wolves is more challenging than dogs as their tolerances seem to be so much higher. But, with Lucas, his discomfort is shown in his eyes, and the more staff observe, the more they can notice subtle changes in condition. The web cam seems to be malfunctioning in the Retired Enclosure, and tech support has been contacted. We hope to have this up and running soon.
