Freckles the Liger Having Teeth Surgery


By the time the Freckles the liger reached the big cat rescue it was about 16 years old. It almost lost its all of teeth. One could see the condition of its teeth as soon as the liger opens its mouth for respiration. As per record of the Freckle, in its lifespan, Freckle the liger is not treated well. Tooth decay is associated with poor and unhygienic living conditions, high bacteria presence and even starvation as well. All of these factors significantly indicate that Freckles the ligers was not treated well at all.

The Big Cat Rescue sanctuary then decided to help this cat by doing surgery of the teeth. Since no one handles Freckles the liger directly or by touching it, therefore, it was almost impossible to shift it without sedating. For this purpose they sedated the liger and then later they transferred the liger to the hospital. All the arrangements were made and tested prior the arrival of the liger. Before the surgery the liger was weighed as well. Freckles the liger weighed 425 pounds before the surgical procedure. The surgery became successful and later on the liger was transferred back to the sanctuary.
