When keepers noticed she had some “unusual hives,” this lioness underwent an allergy test in Australia’s Perth Zoo.
“Humans aren’t the only ones feeling Spring hayfever,” a zoo spokesperson said.
This footage released by shows seven-year-old Uzuri being examined by a veterinary team under general anaesthetic.
“Pet owners may recognise the skin prick-and-patch test as the same one given to their own itchy cats and dogs,” the spokesperson said.
Test results showed the animal was having a reaction to dust, mites and some plants, and vet teams were working on a treatment plan.
