The Henry Vilas Zoo in Madison, Wis., opened its $2.4 million, state-of-the-art Animal Health Center last week. The facility features a large area for diagnostics, quarantine and isolation rooms, and surgery and radiology suites, as well as the nation's first portable radiology system in a zoo. Observation areas exist for the public as well as for veterinary students. "I really feel we've got the best zoo hospital in the country here," said zoo veterinarian Mike Petersen.
