Welfare of our animals
As part of our Zoo license
, there must be four official vet visits per year. These are carried out by the Royal Dick Veterinary School, Edinburgh
. Vets look at every animal during these visits covering four main areas of diet, enclosures, enrichment and animal health.
We work closely with the Vet school
and both students and vets regularily visit the Zoo
to gain hands on experience and offer any additional advice. Signs should be evident on individual enclosures if animals are under any kind of veterinary treatment or supervision. If you have any concerns about any of our animals, please ask at the ticket desk to speak to one of our Keepers
