Zoo Vets: Fangs, Flippers And Tusks (Series 3)
1 x 60'
The vets are back! We rejoin the renowned zoo vets as they face the rigors of remedying the world’s most diverse group of patients. With nearly 28,000 patients representing almost 2,000 species, the vets of Chicago’s Lincoln Park Zoo and Brookfield Zoo never know what animal ailments await them when they gather for morning rounds.
Every day holds a new challenge – the patients can’t explain what hurts and doctors orders are wilfully ignored. In this episode, a dolphin develops a lung lesion, and family of wily meerkats is in need of a checkup.
Combining the most advanced modern technology, teamwork, and their own creative ingenuity, the vets push the limits of veterinary science and forge a future for the world’s most endangered species.
