Nasa was transported from the beach at Chapel Porth to the Cornish Seal Sanctuary and was put into one of the isolation pens in the hospital. A clinical assessment was carried out by members of the animal care team and Nasa was prescribed antibiotics as a precaution to fight any infections she may be harbouring and also anti-inflammatories, aquavits and iron.

Update - 26th October 2013 : Nasa´s wounds are healing nicely! She is really feisty seal!! She has been moved from the hospital to the outside nursery pool for Nasa´s next stage of rehabilitation and to learn how to eat fish for herself and hopefully Shuttle, another rescued seal pup, is teaching her what to do! Nasa currently weighs 16.5kgs.

Update - 16th November 2013 : Nasa continues to be very feisty. The deep wounds on her back have now healed and she is off treatment. The pup was moved down to the outside nursery pools to continue rehabilitation and just recently moved into the convalescent, doing swimmingly! Currently weighs 26kgs.
