Despite Breezy's slim chance of survival, Paddison, the onsite veterinarian, and team of volunteers at Savannah Wildlife Center worked hard to save the baby raccoon's life, giving her subcutaneous fluids for hydration and a series of intensive medical vitamins and antibiotics. The also kept Breezy warm, feeding her a special formula of milk with a syringe and training nipple.
Paddison also went back to the site of the felled tree, hoping to find Breezy's brothers and sisters. As Paddison explains, raccoons never have just one baby, but usually have between four and six kits. "My guess is that the other babies were thrown from the tree as well, but never spotted," Paddison explains.
