Panda to get Teeth Implantation
Chinese veterinarians and dentists are pooling their
skill to implant three teeth to a giant wild Panda. It lost
the teeth due to injury.
This operation will restore its physical health by eating
properly the bamboo shoots, their normal food, the vets
say. The Panda fell into a ravine and suffered fractured
skull, broken legs and chest injuries. When teeth are
implanted the Panda will be able to regain normal chewing
function and thus can eat bamboo with ease.
However an operation of this nature will need 1,500ml of
matching plasma, which is hard to find from other Pandas.
They are extracting blood plasma a bit at a time from the
injured Panda itself !
