It was Saturday night in Tchimpounga. Zola was sleeping with his caregiver, Antonette because the small babies cannot spend the night alone without their adoptive mother. Suddenly Antonette became concerned about the way Zola was breathing. She called out with a worried voice at three in the morning to alert the veterinary team. It was an urgent case. Enough air wasn´t reaching Zola´s lungs and his nose was congested with mucus. The veterinary staff quickly put an oxygen mask onto his face. The night was very long and tiring for everyone. Initial checks confirmed that Zola was suffering acute asthmatic bronchitis and his life was in danger. This chimpanzee was saved thanks to the correct antibiotic drugs, an anti-asthmatic spray and a nasal decongestant. Antonette cradled Zola with him close to her chest, and covered him with her warm and soft jersey, rocking him slowly back and forth until morning. After several days of medication, care and love Zola is out of danger and soon will be back with his friends.
