Our zoo has more than a few doctors and dentists on call who generously give their time and expertise to solve special problems. We've had cardiac specialists, root--canals, eye surgeries....people are SO GOOD sometimes!

Hope the root canal was successful. Did the bear get a new tooth like a human would?

Impressive. Hope his tooth no longer hurts.

The maine thing about Arktos that bothers me is, that none of these 'experts' wore any gloves when they were operating on him. The only ones wearing gloves were the vets who discovered Arktos needed a root canal. Go back and look through the pics again. I am very happy that Arktos is going to be okay, but as far as cleanliness is concerned, ie sharing human germs w/Arktos and vice-versa, if Arktos were HUMAN you better believe they'd be wearing gloves. Thnx for a very eye-opening post, Mick.

I certainly appreciate this post Mick. I had a vet in Ottawa for my kitties and he was originally from Africa. He was often called to the Toronto Zoo to work on dental and health issues for the big cats there. What a lovely man he was.
