About This Project

Veterinary Initiative for Endangered Wildlife

Through our wildlife health work in Nepal, we have seen sick tigers that show symptoms similar to canine distemper virus, a common dog disease. We have already demonstrated that dogs living around Chitwan National Park, the home of most of Nepal's tigers, have this disease. We want to test healthy and sick tigers in Nepal for common dog and cat diseases, to see if these diseases might be a significant threat to their recovery and long term survival.
