About this book

This book offers the small animal practitioner a complete information source for the basics of avian medicine and surgery. It pulls together the international expertise of the avian veterinary community by incorporating the knowledge of authors world-wide.

The first six chapters cover the basic medical information needed to run a primary care avian practice. The focus here is on introductory level material and the average companion animal practice. The later chapters are species-specific and help the veterinarian in evaluating, treating, and/or referring various bird species.

The new edition builds on the success of the first edition and includes full colour illustrations throughout.
