Tucker the Wallaby, from The Creature Teachers, came back for a follow-up visit after having a fractured cervical vertebrae repaired last summer. A real group effort between the Hospital for Large Animals, ZCAM Department and Diagnostic Imaging Department staffs for a thorough and speedy visit.

Tucker is quite interested in Large Animal 
Medicine Resident Dr. Melissa Restifo...

and Dr. Jennifer Graham of the ZCAM Department.

Then he makes the rounds with Technician Amanda Gauthier, Anna Podgorska (V'15), Rhea McCullough (V'16), 
Katie Patellos (V'15) and Dr. Randy Boudrieau.

Dr. Boudrieau gets a little extra attention, after all, 
he repaired Tucker's broken vertebrae.

Tucker and his owner get ready for and get his radiograph from 
the Diagnostic Imaging team.

Dr. Graham and Dr. Restifo look on.

All set and ready to hop along.
