Cheetah Health Sep 29, 2013

Draco, our cheetah who was losing weight, has gained a little weight and seems to be doing better this week!

He showed a three-pound weight gain when he was weighed last week, and showed another weight gain when he was weighed this week. He has eaten his full allotment of food and medicine all week. His keepers say he looks bright and alert, and is back to hissing and snarling at them, as he usually does when he's feeling well.

The team is still cautious, and still watching Draco very closely, but they're feeling encouraged by his progress.
