Rufus, the Joey, from Southwick's Zoo, was a big hit when he visited Dr. Jennifer Graham of the ZCAM Department at 
the Foster Hospital this week.

Rufus seemed more interested in taking a nap 
in his comfy pouch.

Tim, a Zookeeper with Southwick's Zoo, shows Dr. Graham 
the interesting feet of a Kangaroo.

Tim answers Dr. Grahams questions while Rufus 
sucks on his "binkie".

Erika Beck (V'14) tries her best to weigh the energetic Rufus.

Brittany, also of the Southwick's Zoo, holds Rufus while Dr. Graham performs and examination; Erika lends a hand -
 a second hand to be exact.

Michael McEwan (V'14) wants to double check Rufus' weight using a larger scale with the same results. 
Better safe than sorry.

 Any ideas what reclusive animal this eye belongs to? 
Hint; she’s staying at the Wildlife Clinic.

 Poppy is hanging out in B-Ward waiting to be vaccinated.

 It looks like Millie isn’t looking forward to her visit.

Students in the Class of 2014 delve into Pathology during their Cytology Elective 
in the Alden Lab.

 The Snowy Owl is doing well after surgery to repair 
his broken wing.

 Kelsey McKenna (V’15) is all smiles as she practices her ultrasound skills while on her Diagnostic Imaging Rotation 
at the Foster Hospital.

A new group of students means a whole new group 
of heads for Percy to perch on.

 Kate Vezza (V’16) is the definition of multi-tasking; snacking and studying for finals while giving blood at the 
American Red Cross’ “Blood Mobile”.

 These piercing eyes will come in handy when this Great Horned Owlet matures. The raptor came to the Wildlife Clinic from Waltham by the Animal Rescue League.

 Spooky looks more spooked - he likes to be left alone.

 Two Simmental/Charolais mixes enjoy the sunny 
Spring day at the Cummings School Farm.
