Question
Dear Prof Walter

Are there Veterinary Hospital/S in the Zoos in India and other countries?.

If no, Do you feel this should be made mandatory by the Government for running the Zoos?.

Thanks
Prashant

Answer
I do not know about zoos in India and other countries. In the USA large zoos have vets on there staffs but no hospitals per se

I did not answer your 2nd question. I think a vet on the staff should be required. I do not thin a hospital is necessary but they should be equipped
