Zoo Health Management Specialty


Zoo Health Management Specialty

Zoo Health Management is a discipline-related specialty, and whereas many of the objectives of the specialty are shared with the taxon-related specialties there are important differences reflected in the following objectives. The Zoo Health Management Specialist must have a thorough knowledge of preventative medicine as applied in zoological collections, including health programs, disease screening, quarantine management, and vaccination programs. A detailed knowledge of the diseases of the relevant animals (aetiology, epidemiology, pathology, diagnosis, treatment and control) is required. A detailed knowledge of the diagnostic possibilities in their respective patients, in relation to medicine (e.g. haematology, blood chemistry, endocrinological tests, immunological tests, diagnostic imaging, diagnostic endoscopy, electrocardiography, aspiration biopsy, microbiology, cytology) and the ability to interpret results of these techniques is expected. Zoo Health Management specialists must have sound knowledge of the principles of group and individual medication in their patients. The Zoo Health Management specialist must have detailed knowledge of the legislation relating to the role of the zoological institution as well as the veterinary practitioner in the field (e.g., CITES, legislation with regard to import and export of animals, TRACES and BALAI legislation, animal welfare, capture from the wild, and the use of drugs). The Zoo Health Management specialist must maintain good knowledge on zoonotic diseases and public health implications of animal disease. The Zoo Health Management specialist must be able to assess diets, understand the formulation of diets for zoo animals and be aware of the current trends in animal nutrition. A sound knowledge of the interaction of nutrition and health is expected. The Zoo Health Management specialist should have sound knowledge about population management including contraceptive techniques and drugs as well as assisted reproductive methods. The Zoo Health Management specialist should have good knowledge about animal management related issues including enclosure design, environmental enrichment techniques, studbooks and the working of European endangered species programs and taxon advisory groups.
