Juno, the El Paso Zoo’s Asian elephant, will be featured on an episode of the Animal ER program on the Nat Geo Wild network at 8 p.m. on Saturday, August 26.
The episode focuses on the cancer treatment the female elephant received in March. Dr. Lisa DiBernardi of Gulf Coast Veterinary Specialists, Dr. Joe Impellizeri of Veterinary Oncology Services, and the El Paso Zoo’s animal care team successfully performed electrochemotherapy on Juno who was diagnosed with a malignant mass in her right mammary gland in January.
Animal ER is a documentary-style television program that follows the highly trained doctors and staff of Houston’s Gulf Coast Veterinary Specialists as they perform high-end, specialized veterinary medicine on domestic and exotic animals.
