Zoologic Medicine Consulting

The Zoologic Medicine Service at the Cornell University Hospital for Animals provides full-service health care to the more than 900 animals in the Rosamond Gifford Zoo. Located in Syracuse's Burnett Park, the zoo is known for its breeding and conservation programs as well as its educational activities. Endangered species, such as snow leopards and Asian elephants, comprise some of the 125 species at the zoo.

Our two board certified veterinarians provide primary and specialty care to zoo animals, including offering the latest diagnostic and treatment techniques. Veterinary faculty and students visit the zoo to oversee preventative medical programs, offer medical and surgical treatments, and consult on questions of conservation, husbandry, diet and nutrition.
