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.

 

KEEPING THE ZOO HEALTHY: QUARANTINE

The term “quarantine” may conjure up images of horror movies or disease outbreaks, but quarantine at the zoo is far from these ominous images. In fact, in some respects, it can be an exciting time for us here at the zoo because we get to welcome a new animal into the collection.
