VIDEO: Zoo dentists give jaguar 2 root canals and a filling

October 2, 2006 — Sometimes it’s the dentist who’s got the jitters come appointment time.

For zoo specialists, patients come in all sizes, shapes, and colors—and many can take a hand clean off. But critters in captivity often live longer than their wild cousins, so the animals need help keeping those pearly whites shining.

Join a father-and-daughter team as they make their rounds at the zoo, and watch as one ailing jaguar goes under for a root canal.

Wildlife Conservation Society and Wild Chronicles, airing on PBS, made possible by National Geographic Mission Programs and World Wildlife Fund and presented by WLIW New York
