Having a Quail of a time!

This gorgeous little bird was bought into us here at Southern Tablelands Vet Hospital when some holidaymakers found him waddling around the McDonald’s car park at Sutton Forrest with a sore leg. Dr Lucy gave this little guy a thorough health check and found he was in great nick and had faith the sore leg would heal over time! Practice Manager and Senior Nurse Katrina volunteered to care for the bird until we could either reunite him with his owners or find him a new place to live. Two weeks later the leg had healed really well so we posted a photo of him to our Facebook page and that afternoon we had found his owners! Although they were hesitant to believe the bird could have travelled 20km, a yellow tag on his leg proved that he in fact had had quite the holiday himself!
