Animal Health Center
Henry Vilas Zoo

The new animal health center incorporates facilities for several vital functions of the Henry Vilas Zoo. A modern hospital consists of treatment, radiology, surgery and lab areas, all designed for flexibility and smooth flow from one area to the next. An observation window is provided into the surgery room for veterinary students from the university to observe procedures. Animal holding and quarantine is designed for the housing needs of a wide variety of species from the red crested cardinal or the white-handed gibbon to orangutans or zebras. An education center gives the guests a direct view into the treatment area and into a nursery as well as allowing space for a variety of programing opportunities. Finally, sited at the corner of the campus adjacent to one of the secondary entrances, the animal health center is highly visible and creates a whole new presence for the  Zoo.
