Annual health check

Each year, the AfriCat Team including our supporting Veterinarian Dr. Mark Jago, successfully undertake a Health Check on the resident cheetah, leopard & wild dog at our Carnivore Care Centre based on Okonjima. The lions of the AfriCat North Care Centre undergo a similar health check in June.

During these few important days the veterinarians keep the whole operation running smoothly - by adeptly anaesthetising nervous individuals, thoroughly examining each carnivore whilst administering a drip preventing dehydration, keenly offering information to the enthusiastic visitor who may have come to AfriCat specially for this once-in-a-lifetime experience, to see one of the Big Cats close enough to touch!
