Apollo was taken back to the UT College of Veterinary Medicine on September 7th, just 15 days after he arrived at ABR.  He had a good checkup, as these photos show.

This is very good news for little Apollo Bear.   We are sure that his good progress will continue.  Bears are amazingly resilient animals, and with the help of ABR Apollo will be ready for his second chance at a wild life.
