A decent, if somewhat generic, introduction to the work of zoo vets is showcased in this book. The text indicates ways in which sick or injured animals were cared for; however, it does not specify in which zoos the stories happened or even whether or not they were true!

The book does advocate proper “zoo manners” among its young readers, emphasizing in particular the danger posed by throwing coins into animal enclosures.

I liked this book because it is about helping animlas at the zoo. There are 10 sick animals at the zoo. Animals like tigers, penguins, frogs, elephants, and tortoises. The veternarian takes care of the sick animals. I learned about some tools the vet uses to take care of sick animals. I also learned it is very important to be a good zoo visitor.
