Zoological medicine refers to the specialty of veterinary medicine that addresses the care of wildlife species (captive and free ranging), aquatic animals, birds, reptiles and amphibians, and includes non-domestic companion animals (or exotic pets). Zoological medicine incorporates principles of ecology, wildlife conservation, and veterinary medicine, and applies them to wild animals in natural and artificial environments. Faculty in the Department of Medicine and Epidemiology are addressing key concerns associated with these animals.
