For the wellbeing of the animals in our care, the seals and sea lions learn to participate in ultrasounds with our vet staff. One of the first steps in preparing for this is introducing them to any objects they may be unfamiliar with. A lap top looks very similar to our ultrasound machine, so introducing our younger animals to this through play is a great way to begin.
