2018 Association of Exotic Mammal Veterinarians-Lafeber Company Student Case Report Contest

Veterinary students from all over the world were encouraged to write a 2-page case report (1500 words or less) about an exotic companion mammal seen at their college of veterinary medicine or during a clinical experience. Submissions closed in April and four judges from the Association of Exotic Mammal Veterinarians Research Committee evaluated the 22 case reports received. These judges were blinded to the students, mentors, co-authors, and institutions at which the cases were seen. This contest was sponsored by Lafeber Company, and the winners are...
