We enjoy catching up with all of our patients at their visits, but the stories from the Nashville Zoo crew and their experiences with zoo animals ranging from birds, ant eaters, giraffes, or carnivores are always special. This year our office was asked to help sponsor a fundraiser for the upcoming Andean Bear Exhibit at the Nashville Zoo. This year’s “Bear Bash” was organized by the Nashville Associate of Zookeeper. Attendees had the unique opportunity to purchase and bid on artwork created the Nashville Zoo’s animals. Over $9,000 was raised for the Andean Bear Foundation.
