Recently, our vets at the Animal Care Center received a call from a local wildlife rehabilitator who had rescued a sandhill crane.
Busch Gardens’ Animal Care Center opened to the public at the end of January and some noteworthy procedures have taken place in guest view since then. In the treatment center, guests watch through floor-to-ceiling glass walls as Busch Gardens’ skilled veterinarians do preventative checkups, treatments and surgeries on animals. The most recent procedure was a pre-shipment exam for a 2 1/2 year-old cheetah named Juno.
Have you ever made lunch for a elephant?
Have you ever seen an ultrasound on a sloth? I hadn’t until I started working in and around Busch Gardens' newest attraction the Animal Care Center. Within this 16,000 sq ft facility you will be able to experience educational nutrition shows, learn about animal care and enjoy an interactive diagnostic activity.
