International Species Information System will develop three new information services targeted for zoo veterinarians that will provide the best information available in: (1) pharmaceutical dosages and safety, (2) anesthesia protocols, and (3) common medical problems. The project addresses the critical need for species-specific veterinary medical information in these areas for a thousand (and steadily growing number of) species to support quality animal care. As veterinary staff record treatment outcomes and morbidity and mortality measurements, more information will become available through the shared service to assist future diagnoses, provide collective information on the efficacy of various treatments for medical problems, and improve animal health and survival.
