I’m Priya Bapodra, veterinarian at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium — AMA!
Thanks so much for your questions! I had a lot of fun answering them but got to run now! I'll try to get to a few more if I have time later today! Have a good one!
Hi - I'm Priya Bapodra, veterinarian at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium and I'm in the new series Secrets of the Zoo on Nat Geo WILD. I co-founded the first Giraffe Blood Bank, which has helped collect plasma from many species to assist vulnerable animals in need of life support at zoos across the country. I’m also an adjunct assistant professor at The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine and I travel all over the country speaking about preventive vet medicine and vet management. AMA!
EDIT: Watch Priya on the series premiere of Secrets of the Zoo this Sunday at 9/8c on Nat Geo WILD!
