Lucky the dolphin has been diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma and transported from Florida to Chicago for advanced treatment.
The medical team performs cryotherapy on Lucky as they use big swabs to freeze cancer in the back of his mouth. CT scans and ultrasound are used to make sure cancer has not spread to the rest of Lucky’s body. The treatment seems to be effective, but treating cancer in a pool brings its challenges.
The treatment could advance medicine for other animals and should keep Lucky splashing for years to come.
