The 45th annual American Association of Zoo Veterinarians conference is under way in Salt Lake City. Veterinarians from around the world are getting up to speed on training zoo animals to cooperate for physical exams and treatments, ensuring zoo emergency preparedness, promoting nutrition and much more. "You go to the zoo and enjoy looking at the animals, and you never think of all that goes into maintaining the health and welfare of those animals," said veterinarian Robert Hilsenroth, executive director of the organization.
