Publisher's Description:

Interest in avian medicine has evolved and it is now one of the fastest growing areas in veterinary medicine.

In this concise practical and beautifully illustrated book, early chapters deal with anatomy and physiology, physical examination and advice on how to interpret diagnostic tests. Disorders affecting the different body regions and systems make up the majority of the book from the external (skin and feathers, eyes, legs and feet) to the internal including the gastrointestinal tract and the cardiovascular system. Further aspects of avian medicine discussed in the book include behavioural problems, surgery and formulary.

In light of 25 years of clinical practice in avian medicine, the author has written this book as a quick reference for clinicians, and as a study guide for undergraduate and post-graduate veterinary students.
