Did we say Giving TOOTHday? We mean Giving Tuesday.

This year, the Toronto Zoo is participating in Giving Tuesday once again with #GivingZOOday. Our goal is to raise $5,000 for a brand new piece of dental equipment called an iM3 Vet-tome Atraumatic Extraction System for the Wildlife Health Centre.

Toronto Zoo Wildlife Staff perform dental work on our animals on a weekly basis to check up on their oral care and maintain their health. The iM3 Vet-tome Atraumatic Extraction System is a major advancement in tooth extraction that greatly reduces extraction time and saves bone. The Vet-Tome is an automated periotome with foot pedal operation that offers precise tooth extraction with minimal or no alveolar bone loss. This piece of equipment provides easier tooth removal than using a regular dental elevator. This means more rapid socket healing and a quicker operation, minimizing the duration and risk of anesthesia.

With your donation for a new Atraumatic Extraction System, we will continued to be able to provide the fastest and best care to our animals, and continue to be a leading zoo in animal care and research.
