PHOTOS: Meo the snow leopard visits the vet at Melbourne Zoo

Meo the snow leopard is getting old. At age 14, she's at risk of arthritis, diabetes and kidney disease.
So, on her way from Big Cat Row to a new temporary residence behind the scenes at Melbourne Zoo on Monday, Meo swung by the vet surgery for a routine check-up.

"She looks great for her age," says veterinarian Dr Sarah Frith, after giving Meo a general check-up: eyes, ears, teeth and blood samples. "Her teeth are fantastic, eyes excellent and her coat is in good condition."
