Earlier this year, with the help and support of Sonja Hadenfeldt, Michele and Ben Nigg, and Deb Coleman, The RARE Group was able to purchase an anesthesia machine from Vetamac. This piece of equipment allows trained RARE volunteers to anesthetize birds, so they can better perform examinations and physical therapy on birds with fractures, or who are experiencing pain. It is also used for surgeries. We are grateful to have this equipment, which allows us to perform these necessary medical tasks with less stress on our patients. Thank you to all involved!
