The working group Wildlife Medicine combines applied, clinical and scientific aspects of wildlife- and zoo animal medicine. Our main goal is to develop, improve and provide modern, safe and species-specific wildlife medicine.
Our main research topics cover a wide spectrum form wildlife anaesthesia, and ecophysioloy to microbiome and biomimetic research.
Our group works on all aspects of prophylactic, diagnostic and therapeutic wildlife medicine. We provide veterinary support and skills as responsible veterinarians, clinicians and researcher to research- and conservation- and wildlife projects.
We work on a variety of research projects to improve wildlife anaesthesia as an important part of wildlife conservation and animal welfare. We develop new methods and protocols in a broad spectrum of wild mammals integrating evidence-based knowledge on their specific physiology.
The team of our Wildlife Medicine group encompasses a wide variety of traditional and modern veterinary disciplines, which are adapted to accommodate the diversity of species treated. These include population health management, preventive diagnostic and therapeutic medicine, epidemiology, comparative medicine, and the highly personalized, intensive medical care offered to our patients.
Advanced ultrasonography, wildlife internal medicine, species-specific wildlife anaesthesia, reproduction management and animal welfare considerations are integrative parts of our research and veterinary services.
