World Class Veterinary Care

veterinary-caring-for-seal

Like all medical professionals, zoo veterinarians are bound by an oath to provide the best possible care. Opportunities for discovery and improvement appear constantly. Diagnostic equipment, professional training and ongoing research projects are central to understanding and solving complex issues of individual animal health and wellbeing as well as species survival.

Since the Zoo's patients can't speak, sophisticated tools are especially important to veterinarians who may be working against the clock to save an animal or to learn more about the health of a population.

With your help, tools such as these will make a difference in the lives of Zoo animals – today and for years to come. Click here to view the entire veterinary care wish list.

  • The Radiosurgical unit (Surgitron - Dual Frequency RF/120 Device) is an important tool for cutting and cauterizing during surgical procedures.
  • Large animal ventilator So that our vets may provide better anesthetic control of our larger patients
  • I-STAT machine Essential for intraprocedure monitoring of blood values, including blood gases during anesthesia

Our region is known for medical innovation and delivering quality healthcare. Please make a gift to the We Care for Animals Fund Drive and support the veterinary team and great daily care for Zoo animals.
