Zebra Checkup - 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: a small stone stuck in his hoof. But they won't know until they knock him out with a powerful anaesthetic. Baby Gorilla Under the Weather - 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. Reindeer Roundup - The vets need to check a sore on Cupe the reindeer's back. It's not worth anesthitizing her, so that leaves keeper Steve Unwin to catch-up the reindeer. It's a lot more delicate than it looks.
