Zoo veterinarian talks to docents
STOCKTON – Dr. Jackie Gai will deliver a rare look behind the scenes at the daily life of a busy zoo veterinarian at the monthly Docent Council meeting on Monday, Jan. 11, at the San Joaquin County Historical Museum in Micke Grove Park south of Lodi.

The program will begin at 9 a.m. in the museum’s multi-purpose room. After Dr. Gai’s program and refreshments, a business meeting will follow. The public is encouraged to attend.

Until a recent job change, Dr. Gai had been the primary veterinarian at Micke Grove Zoo since 2002. A graduate of the U.C. Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, she has worked for years on a California Department of Fish and Game committee to improve the standard care of captive wildlife. In addition to talking about a zoo veterinarian’s job, she will talk about the history of zoo medicine and share stories about unique animals at the Micke Grove Zoo.

The Docent Council is a volunteer group with about 90 members in the San Joaquin County Historical Society & Museum and assists in the museum’s educational programs and activities.
