From Library Journal:

Gr 2-4-Sound information in a readable format. Lauber gives a series of short examples of how zoo vets treat the animals in their care. The writing is suitable for children just past the beginning-reader stage. Each short story shows a different aspect of the vets' jobs, from cleaning and filling a tiger's tooth, to removing objects from an animal's throat or stomach, to helping to parent baby animals. The author also cites an example of when it is better to leave nature alone, as when a vet decides to allow one more day for a giraffe's baby to be born naturally. She also warns readers about the consequences of feeding animals, teasing them, or throwing things into their areas. Morgan's illustrations, done in watercolor and pen and ink, are serviceable and show a gender and ethnically diverse zoo staff. A book that will pique the interest of readers who are curious about zoos, their inhabitants, and their caregivers.-Sally Bates Goodroe, Harris County Public Library, Houston, TX (c) Copyright 2010.
