New Dental X-Ray Machine

You have a unique opportunity to make a big difference in the dental care of all the species at Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium this holiday season.

Imagine you’re Kirana the endangered Sumatran tiger with a toothache. Or Nigel the prehensile-tailed porcupine, and you’ve cracked a tooth on a nut. You’d want the best, state-of-the-art dental care available. And quick.

Help us purchase a small, portable dental X-ray machine for our Veterinary Healthcare team at the Zoo.

HEAR FROM THE PEOPLE WHO CARE FOR THEM

As with humans, healthy teeth are a foundation of overall health in animals, said Head Veterinarian Dr. Karen Wolf. “This unit would allow us to get all sorts of images without having to move the animal. The X-rays allow us to see dental pathology, diseases that are affecting the teeth. Then we can address those in a quick manner and, when needed, consult with dental experts around the world.”

Now, that’s something to smile about!

Please donate today and know that your gift will have a positive impact on the health of the many endangered and other species at Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium.
