Giant Panda Cub Veterinary Exam

National Zoo
At a veterinary exam Sept. 17, 2015 our giant panda cub measured 31 centimeters from his head to the tip of his tail. From his head to the base of his tail he measured 27 centimeters. His right front leg was 10 centimeters long and his right hind leg was 9 centimeters long. Veterinarians reported that he has an excellent range of motion and is able to push up onto his front legs. Keepers have seen him scooting around the den using his front legs, but he is not walking yet. #PandaStory

Laparoscopy in zoological medicine

Smithsonian Libraries
The technique of laparoscopy was adapted and utilized in zoological medicine for various mammals, birds, and reptiles for reproductive and diagnostic studies as well as clinically related research. It was concluded that since anesthesia was routinely required for most manipulative procedures in zoo animals, and since laparoscopy adds little additional risk, the use of this technique provides an additional diagnostic aid when indicated. Laparoscopy was found to be effective for evaluating reproductive status, particularly ovarian anatomy and function, direct visual biopsy of internal organs, sex determination in selected birds, and as a surgical means of fertility control.

Helping the Elephant-Sized Medicine Go Down

National Zoo
Oct. 3, 2014—Ever wonder how elephants take their medicine? Last week, we told you that 38-year-old Asian elephant Bozie was being treated by our animal care team for colic-like symptoms. Following 24-hour care and daily treatments, Bozie’s overall appetite and water intake has improved and she is back to eating her normal diet of fruits, grains and greens. As blood test results revealed that she has a serious infection, the challenge for our team is to try to pinpoint its origin and continue to administer antibiotics for the next month or longer to ensure her full recovery. However, just like children, elephants sometimes need some coaxing to take an elephant-sized dosage of meds. Sometimes for specific critical situations, we bend the nutritional rules and provide non-typical items to deliver the medication Mary Poppins style. Bozie is one of those cases. Check out this behind-the-scenes look at how our team is using banana bread, peanut butter and even potato chips to help the medicine go down.
