Description

This 3-hour lecture on the pathology of zoo animals covers the common and not-so common diseases of a wide range of reptilian, amphibian, avian, and mammalian zoo species.

Objectives

Demonstration of gross morbid anatomy and the pathogenesis of a wide range of disease in vertebrate species from zoological collections.
