Avian Adventures - Our Latest Research Project Begins

Friday, March 06, 2015  ‹ Back To Latest News List

SyncThermology are delighted to have been asked to take part in a new study working alongside some of the UK’s zoos and wildlife parks.

We recently began a large research project with the aim of collecting data on a disease referred to as Bumblefoot. "Bumblefoot” is the common term for inflammation or infection of the weight-bearing surface of the foot and is commonly found in captive birds. SyncThermology will be screening over 200 flamingos alongside a team of vets and professionals over the coming months and last week we began the project at Marwell Wildlife. The day went very well and our team thoroughly enjoyed working with wildlife outside the day to day equine and canine clients.

A big thank you is in order to all the members of our team who came along to assist including Technicians Lucy Challis, Tracy Lomax and Michelle Walker.
