Update - 13th November 2017 : Neptune was eating well for himself upon arrival at the hospital, however, he needs eye drops for his eyes so the pup is being kept in the hospital in a dry pen until the ulcer has healed.
Update - 21st November 2017 : Neptune was moved down to the outside nursery pools.

Update - 28th November 2017 : Neptune is now in the convalescent pool and is enjoying racing the other pups for fish during feeding time. His flipper tag number is 326 (green).
