Event Description

Avian consults can be difficult and often present as an emergency because owners do not understand normal bird behaviour or cannot recognise key symptoms that might indicate an important underlying problem.

In this course you will review and update your knowledge of avian anatomy, physiology and husbandry; handling and examination techniques; the collection of diagnostic samples; emergency procedures and housing; interpreting avian biochemistry and making the most of other in-house pathology; special requirements of avian radiography and common problems and syndromes. The course will review when and which medication and/or surgical procedures may be necessary, once a diagnosis has been reached. Avian cases may often seem complex at first glance. This course aims to give you the knowledge and skills to approach them with confidence and give your patients the maximum chance of a successful outcome.
