*WAZE of the Future: Advancements in Wildlife, Aquatic, Zoo and Exotic
Medicine*

Saturday, September 13th, 2014 – Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at
Tufts University, North Grafton, MA

This year’s WAZE symposium will cover a variety of topics on developments
in wildlife, aquatic, zoo and exotic medicine and husbandry. We will
discuss the issues involved in keeping wildlife in captivity, explore the
medical management of animal populations in the wild, and learn about the
care required by exotic species kept as pets.

Wetlabs will give students and veterinarians a chance to gain hands-on
experience with exotic animal physical exams, exotic animal hematology,
turtle shell repair, and comparative anatomy.

Topics include:

   - Medical Management of Leatherback Sea Turtles
   - Husbandry in Avian Health
   - Beluga Whale Research
   - Fish Surgery and Anesthesia
   - Medical Management of Horseshoe Crabs
   - Big Cats in Captivity

Each lecture session will be followed by a brief period for questions and
discussion.

This symposium qualifies for 6 hours of continuing education credit. Please
note whether you will be attending for credit when registering.
