Dr. Parker enjoys the challenge of critical patient anesthesia and multi-modal analgesia with the use of locoregional blocks, as well as teaching technicians to become more confident and knowledgeable in their anesthesia skills. Her favourite patients to anesthetize are the weird and wonderful including zoo, exotic and wildlife patients. In addition to farm animals, equine, dogs and cats, Dr. Parker has experience anesthetizing small exotic pets, as well as several species of ungulates, black bears, Western low-land gorillas, Eastern Black rhinoceros, birds of prey, reptiles and large exotic felids including cougar and tiger species. Wildlife conservation is dear to Dr. Parkers heart and it is her dream to continue working with these amazing animals and assist with the vital research to protect natures treasures!
