It was a tense day but the check-up went smoothly without any problems, however as expected and feared the results indicate that Nico is not in best shape as you would hope a chimp at his age to be.
Now we have to await the rest of the results and see how we can improve his state on the long term. All this sounds very gloomy, but don´t worry there is no imminent dangers, just that Nico due to his genetic disease (since birth) and his first years in captivity is bound to have some health problems for the rest of his life and will need even more attention from the vet and keeper staff.
