Animals are involved in many different activities which we carry out daily. They are responsible for maintaining the ecological cycle in a stable manner. Many students lack sufficient veterinary experience both in undergrad and in vet school. Students may gain insight through our programs to boost their career and also get to know the common issues that affect animals.

There were 2 things of note were discovered- the heart had a fatty covering particularly around the left atrium and both kidneys were extremely discoloured.

A relaxed morning turned into a critical care case for a lion cub today! 🦁 The cub had been reportedly in and out of ill health for a week so Safari4u went to assess it to help with a treatment plan. Upon arrival, staff member Alex, realised it was critical and the decision was made to take it to Wild Coast Vet… after collecting it from the ground with the rest of the pride watching!
