The tiger was sedated before the vet, Mor Mosinzon, began treated “Pedang,” according to the Israel HaYom newspaper.
Pedang lives at the Zoological Center of Tel Aviv-Ramat Gan, which said this was the first time it used Chinese medicine on an animal. Antibiotics have not worked, and Mosinzon explained that the acupuncture is aimed at making the tiger stronger so its body can better absorb the antibiotics.Jewish Press News Briefs
