Meet Mohan, a rhino with painfully sore feet. And Patch, a falcon with a broken wishbone. And Kachina, a bear cub with brittle bones. Not to mention Alfredito, a hippo suffering from a sever bout of toothache. All these animals owe their lives to the dedicated zoo and wild animal vets who employ boundless ingenuity and expertise to care for them and who, in this beguiling book, tell the stories of their most memorable cases. They describe not only the meticulous detective work that goes into making a diagnosis but also the pioneering techniques they have developed. And they talk freely and movingly about the bonds they form with their exotic patients.. Whether it's one doctor's determined effort to save a critically ill lemur, the neurosurgeon who was persuaded to operate on a paralysed kangaroo, or the vet who refused to give up on an orphaned baby beluga whale, these are acts of rescue, kindness and co-operation that will warm every animal lover's heart.Next we had to deal with the scours and the presumptive tummyache that went along with them. Since fawn season had recently begun in western Virginia, wea#39;d already received an initial supply of goata#39;s milk in preparation for the orphaned whitetailed ... roadway after a fatal encounter with a car that couldna#39;t stop in time.
