KEEPING THE ZOO HEALTHY: VETERINARIAN CARE at JOHN BALL ZOO

Our goal at John Ball Zoo is to provide the best care possible for all of over 1,200 animals.  This care relies on the hard work of many people.  Our keepers are at the center of that care.  They provide nutritious meals, clean exhibits, and many forms of training and enrichment.  They are also an extremely important part of the veterinary medical care for the animals here at the zoo.

 

Unique Cases call for Specialized Testing - Penguin CT Scan

Medicine, both human and veterinary, have come so far over the centuries. Amazing technologies allow for advanced testing that was not available in the past. We are very fortunate at the zoo to have built partnerships with many colleagues to allow us to utilize some of these technologies when we need them.  While we are able to perform a great deal on site at the zoo hospital, specialized equipment is needed for some tests.
