It’s time to find out why Punda the zebra stallion is on the limp. The vets’ fear ligament damage or the onset of arthritis. Their hope is that it's just a small stone stuck in his hoof. But they won’t know until they knock him out with a powerful anesthetic.

Shalia, the zoo’s youngest gorilla, has a cough that’s making her lose sleep. Heidi, one of the gorilla keepers, has been up nights, too, trying to figure out a way for the eight-month-old ape to take her medicine. Today, she’ll sneak the cough syrup into a banana, then try to sneak the banana past Shalia’s hungry mother, Sam.

The vets need to check a sore on Cupe the reindeer’s back. It’s not worth anesthetizing her, so that leaves keeper Steve Unwin to catch and hold the reindeer. It’s a lot more delicate than it looks.
