Sneezy

Sneezy

Sneezy (patient #14-3324) is a Virginia opossum that was hit by a vehicle and sustained damage to his face and tail.  CROW's veterinary staff was able to fix his jaw but had to amputate his tail.  

Fun Fact: The Virginia opossum is the only marsupial (pouched mammal) found in the United States. The Opossum has been around for at least 70 million years - since the time of the dinosaurs - and is one of Earth's oldest surviving mammals. They are unusually resistant to the venom of venomous snakes and are extremely unlikely to acquire rabies. They have 50 very sharp teeth, more than any land mammal.
