Our Weekly Recap of Events

Well, it was another busy week at In-Sync Exotics—and what a week it was for us!

On Monday we celebrated President’s Day by opening our doors to the public.  Amazingly, it was such a beautiful day for our guests to visit with our animals.

On Tuesday we discussed Okemo and Nadia’s upcoming medical procedures.  You may recall last week Vicky noticed Okemo had a swollen jaw on the right side of his face and the staff discovered Nadia had a circular wound on her face.  An appointment was made for our vet to come out and examine our animals while they were under sedation.  Needless to say, we were a little concerned with the effect sedation may have on our wild cats because…click HERE for the rest of the story.

On Wednesday, we introduced everyone to our two adorable African Servals, Jasi and Nefertiti (affectionately known to us as Nefie).  Both servals were well-kept former pets, brought to us by their former owners—but that is where their similarities end!

Thursday was a big day for our two tigers, Okemo and Nadia, as they were seen by their vet.  They were sedated, treated, blood and cultures taken, and then revived without any serious complications.  Read all about our tigers’ day with the vet HERE.

Update on Nadia:  Nadia’s x-rays revealed she has a tooth (T-3) on the right side of her face that needs to be pulled.  She has an appointment to have the tooth extracted on March 14, 2012.  We will keep you updated on her progress!

Update on Okemo:  The x-rays did reveal a problem with Okemo’s jaw; however, until the cultures results come back, we are hesitant to announce what is definitely wrong with Okemo.  We will keep you posted of Okemo’s progress as soon as we receive his lab test results.



Yesterday we released our first “tiger cam” video featuring Saber (Saber was the one who knocked over the camera), Nadia, Luca, and Mohan.  Emma was a little shy and was not seen on this particular video.  Stay tuned for more videos by Barry Stevenson to be released in the near future.  If you haven't seen the video yet, then click HERE -- be prepared to be amazed!


Razoo Big Cats Need Their Vaccination Project Reminder!  We are only short $290 towards our new goal of $1025!  Can you help us reach our goal by February 29, 2012?

So until next week, we hope you have a safe and happy weekend!
