Carning arrived on April 14, 2010. He/she was found floating by a fisherman just off of Blackbeard Island, Georgia. Our initial exam and diagnostic workup revealed that Carning was dehydrated and that there was air in his/her body cavity most likely from a tear in the lung. The lung tear was healed over time by the vet staffs constant effort to remove the air from the body cavity. This was done by removing air from his/her body cavity via aspiration he/she was finally able to swim and dive normally again.
