49. Dolphin Fever

49. Dolphin Fever

Welcome to our 2022 season to Aquadocs! We are so excited to kick things off with Dr. Sarah Churgin, veterinarian at Ocean Park in Hong Kong. In this episode, Dr. Churgin discusses the perks and challenges of practicing in a new country such as learning how to do root canals on dolphins and dealing with language barriers. We also discuss Meliodosis, a disease that can cause high fevers and potentially septicemia in dolphins in Asian countries. And stick around until the end for externship and internship opportunities for high school through vet students! If you want to get in touch with Dr. Churgin, feel free to email her at sarah.churgin@oceanpark.com.hk.
