Saving Bhakti the Lynx

Bhakti is a five-year-old female lynx
that presented to ACCESS for further evaluation of hind limb ataxia and
weakness and she wasn’t able to jump, run, or play and her owners were
contemplating humane euthanasia due to how diminished her quality of was. She
initially saw Dr. O’Neill at our practice who eventually did an MRI of
Bhakti’s brain and diagnosed her with middle ear infections with some
extension to her inner ear leading to her neurological signs. We ended up
taking Bhakti to surgery and draining a large amount of pus from both of her
middle ear cavities and which led to a marked improvement in her clinical
signs, with Bhakti being able to jump, run, and play only months after surgery
