The girls have become more and more comfortable hanging out in the dayroom. The proof is that they have found new places to nap (the top of the structure). Because of this we're able to keep them in the dayroom for longer periods. You may also notice that at the end of the day Mom comes out and grabs her cubs for us....

Well, its’ been a very busy day, and I have a lot of paperwork to catch up on now. I won’t put you all through entering medical records and reading scientific papers. Hopefully you enjoyed my #TakeoverTuesday! – Dr. Dan, Vet Resident

Whoops, how did this get in there? To be honest, I have a pretty interesting office since I share the space with all the mascot costumes. If I’m going to be working in a storage room, I might as well have fun with it. Just don’t tell the Special Events Department … shhh! #TakeoverTuesday – Dr. Dan, Vet Resident

One last recheck before heading back to my office. This is Ariel the goat, and she’s recovering from surgery. We had been monitoring her recently for an enlarged udder. We knew that we could remove it if necessary, but didn’t want to put her through surgery if we could find another way. In the end, surgery was the best option, and the procedure went well. She’s acting great and I just need to...

Another ultrasound session, but I still can’t find any baby sloths (hmmm, I wonder if there is a special name for “baby sloth”?). Being a veterinary resident is good because I have back-up whenever I’m not sure of the best course of action. Dr. Sam and Dr. Kate are great mentors and I’ve learned so much from them while I’ve been here at the Zoo. While I may not be an expert sloth...

The pandas aren’t the only animals that are fluffy and adorable. Nothing for me to do with this fuzzball, but it’s fun to check in on how the milky eagle owl chick is doing. While sometimes the vet staff has to help with chicks, our bird staff really know their stuff. So today I just have to determine how cute he is … you know, for science. #TakeoverTuesday – Dr. Dan, Vet Resident

Time to say goodbye to the scaly creatures and hello to the feathered ones. One of the keepers at The Living Treehouse habitat wants me to look at a bird. This bird is a Taveta golden weaver who can only see out of its left eye. When the bird first had eye problems, we had a veterinary ophthalmologist come out and check his eye, but despite our best efforts, we couldn’t save the eye, which is...

Truth be told, I’m a pretty big nerd. And there’s lots of “nerdy” stuff to do at work. One of the interesting gadgets that I’ve been playing with is this magnifier for my phone. I’m checking this alligator lizard for any external parasites. I’m not sure if it’s any better than just using my eyes, but if you don’t try, you’ll never know! (You can also get some pretty cool pictures.)...
