When an urgent call comes from the Los Angeles Zoo, UCLA physicians might rush to help a chimpanzee with a leaky mitral valve or an African lioness with fluid in the sac surrounding her heart.
The doctors from Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center serve as volunteers on the zoo’s Medical Advisory Board, making themselves available to the zoo’s highly skilled veterinarians for assistance in especially perplexing cases.
