Anaesthetising a fish, x-raying a frog and hospitalising a walrus are all in a day’s work for the world’s wildest veterinarian.
Travelling from the rainforests of Sierra Leone to the jungles of Borneo, Romain Pizzi has caught, anaesthetised, diagnosed, operated on, medicated and then released some of the world's most endangered wild animals.
From disease-testing Polynesian snails to keyhole surgery in Sumatran orangutans; from endoscopy in sharks to ultrasound on a chimpanzee. Sometimes this is high tech work, such as the first robotic surgery in a tiger, or giant panda cloning attempts. Sometimes the situations are more primitive, from anaesthetising a bear with a bicycle pump, old plumbing tubes and a plank, to operating on a vulture using an old metal spoon.
In Exotic Vetting, Romain recalls his many interesting patients, while taking listeners on a tour of the challenges of treating the world’s amazing spectrum of wild animal species.

Listening in the zoo
Well categorized chapters with great examples. I listent to it while on my veterinary zoo practical. It was a great book for a student wanting to learn the profession and for a vet to hear great stories. I loved the way he made it all feel connected.
