The Molina Animal Care Center provides healthcare for the animals of the Aquarium of the Pacific, often exotic animals that are difficult to diagnosis. Visitors have the opportunity to view veterinary medicine in action. The Molina Animal Care Center uses advanced digital equipment, such as Eklin digital radiography system that quickly stores diagnostic images and speeds up the x-ray process which is much more beneficial for the animals. The Center also uses high tech microscopes that allows images to be emailed. Visitors can watch Aquarium staff sharing how they use all minimally invasive techniques and explain a live procedure each day. Young patients can ask questions and speak directly with veterinarians.
