Surgery in Zoo and Wildlife Settings: From the Outback to Balboa Park
Surgeries in Zoo and Wildlife settings present unique challenges, from a wide array of anatomic and physical challenges to the n=1 conundrum. Dr. Reed from the San Diego Zoo will share cases she has encountered during her career in Australian wildlife hospitals, aquaria, and now in a large American zoo. With an emphasis on avian orthopedic fracture repair, approaches to surgery and post operative care in non-traditional species (including invertebrates, fish, large carnivores, and megavertebrates) will be discussed.
