2019 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 about an exotic companion mammal seen at their college of veterinary medicine or during a clinical experience. Submissions closed in April and judges from the Association of Exotic Mammal Veterinarians Research Committee evaluated the 14 case reports received. 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...
