Dear friends of Loro Parque,
With only a few days left before we reopen our doors after such a difficult year, we want to share with you our concern for Ula, the youngest member of the Orca Ocean family.
During the last days, her mood has deteriorated and continues to decline. She is showing signs of an intestinal problem, although none of the tests that our veterinarians have realized since the first moment have given any concrete indications, and her blood test has not demonstrated any apparent signs of an infectious process. Nonetheless, and in a preventive way, she has been transferred to the medical pool where she is receiving treatment that ensures her comfort while being attended by her care givers and the veterinary team during 24 hours.
In this situation, Loro Parque has contacted the best international specialists in cetaceans, who have not hesitated to come to her aid and are currently carrying out specific diagnoses in order to identify the cause of this intestinal pathology. We confide in their expertise and are sure that soon we will have more clarity about what is going on with our little Ula so that we can help her to recover as soon as possible.
The rest of the orca family is doing well and we hope that Ula recovers soon and can reunited with the group.
