dc.description.abstract... The following document is the fifth edition developed by the Veterinary Standards Committee of the American Association of Zoo Veterinarians to be used as a guideline for zoos and aquariums in developing and evaluating the medical programs in their institutions. The Veterinary Medical Program encompasses the routine medical and surgical care of the collection and the preventive medicine program. In order for the veterinary staff to support these programs of veterinary care, a hospital facility appropriate to the collection's needs is required. It is hoped that this document will be an aid in the accreditation of zoos and aquariums by the American Zoo and Aquarium Association.
