Event description:

Ever wondered what a day in the life of a zoo vet is like? Hear from our onsite zoo vet Pip Dobbs about caring for the range of animals we have at Twycross zoo, from butterflies to elephants. 

This veterinary talk will cover in detail the day to day work of the Twycross Zoo on site veterinary team. Including some of the biggest clinical projects this year with the movement of our 4 elephants to Blackpool zoo and moving our chimps into their new home, Chimpanzee Eden. The talk will also outline the other important non-clinical tasks carried out by the team.
