Vet's Eye View

A Healthy Dose of Animal Care

A house call at the zoo is anything but ordinary, and annual check-ups can be dangerous for those doing the checking. Join a Calgary Zoo veterinarian for a presentation with pictures, x-rays and behind-the-scenes stories about the medical care of the zoo’s animals. You’ll learn about creatures – large and small.


  • $550 per presentation, if presented on zoo grounds with a catered event
  • $600 per presentation, if presented off-site but within city limits
  • A/V equipment is not included

Get a glimpse at a day in the life of a vet.
